Jordan Staal may be on the trading block, with rumors of a potential deal sending him to Carolina.

Pittsburgh Penguins star forward Jordan Staal may be on his way out, according to a report from Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Yohe tweeted out Saturday afternoon that he thinks Ray Shero may trade Staal to the Carolina Hurricanes this offseason, via @JoshYohe_Trib:

If dealt to the 'Canes, Staal would join his brother and longtime Carolina superstar, Eric Staal. Jordan had an up-and-down injury filled 2011-2012 season and is entering the final year of a contract that is set to pay him $4.5 million next season. Staal had 25 goals and 50 points in 62 games this year.
