Second Star- Jordan Staal
Jordan Staal was a huge part of the great record for the Carolina Hurricanes through the 5 games. He consistently played very well in all areas. He provided a good source of offense for the team, which is encouraging to see out of Staal.
Jordan Staal put up 3 points (2 goals, 1 assist) in 5 games, he was a plus 3, and he won over 52% of his faceoffs in each of the 5 games. He won 70% of his draws against the Minnesota Wild, and he won 100% against the New York Islanders.
He played 21:12 of ice time against the Ducks on Friday, which shows the trust Kirk Muller has in Jordan Staal. He has certainly earned the trust.
Jordan Staal still shutdown enemy offense. He played very physical, and that caused him to be lethal in all situations. This week was a good one for Staal.
If he can keep this up, the Carolina hurricanes will have no problem paying him $6 million a year.
