The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired Jordan Staal from the Pittsburgh Penguins for the eighth overall pick in Friday night's NHL draft, center Brandon Sutter and defenseman Brian Dumoulin.
The Penguins used the pick to take Derrick Pouliot of the WHL's Portland Winterhawks.
Staal rejected a contract offer from the Penguins earlier this week, which multiple media outlets reported was for 10 years.
Jordan Staal's brother, Eric, also is on the Hurricanes.
The Pittsburgh Penguins and Sidney Crosby are finalizing a new contract that will be worth $104.4 million over 12 years, his agent, Pat Brisson of CAA Sports, told ESPN.com on Thursday.
The deal would carry an average salary of about $8.7 million a season, although it would be front-loaded.
The agreement was reported earlier by TSN in Canada.
Crosby, whose 2011-12 season twice was interrupted because of symptoms from a concussion suffered in January 2011, cannot sign the contract until Sunday, per the rules in the collective bargaining agreement for players who have one year remaining on their current contracts.
Crosby's final year on his current deal counts for $8.7 million against the salary cap. The new contract would go into effect for the 2013-14 season.
I know if you're 31 or 33 or something, the length of any new contract is already limited.They are trying to some what # of years limited to 6.
