Jordan Staal Rejects Contract Extension From Pens
PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — According to a report by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Pittsburgh Penguins forward Jordan Staal has rejected a 10-year contract extension to remain in Pittsburgh.
Financial terms are unknown at this time, but the report says Staal is open to re-signing with the Pens. He also reportedly told the front office that he’d be open to a trade with the Carolina Hurricanes, where his older brother Eric currently plays.
Penguins general manager Ray Shero did not make a comment and Staal’s agent was rather vague with his statement regarding the situation.
“My only comments will be that Jordan is not prepared to enter into a contract extension at this time,” said his agent, Paul Krepelka, to the Tribune-Review.
