‘Canes Staal off IR, eligible to play tonight.

From the Associated Press:

Eric Staal is back in the Carolina Hurricanes’ lineup.

The team said Wednesday it activated the All-Star center from injured reserve and says he is eligible to play later that night at Anaheim.

The 25-year-old missed 10 games with an upper body injury sustained Nov. 1 against San Jose. He had three goals and two assists in the Hurricanes’ first 13 games before he was hurt.

Before he missed a game at Florida on Nov. 4, Staal had skated in 349 consecutive games — the second-longest string in franchise history.
