RALEIGH, N.C. - Jordan Staal is committed to playing with the Carolina Hurricanes for a long time.

The 23-year-old centre has agreed to a US$60-million, 10-year extension that kicks in starting with the 2013-14 season.

Staal was recently acquired by the Hurricanes from Pittsburgh for Brandon Sutter, a first-round pick and a prospect.

The move reunited him with brother Eric Staal, the Hurricanes captain.

Jordan Staal will earn $4.5 million in the final year of his current contract next season.
