Default Jordan Staal turns down 10 year deal from the Pens

STAAL TURNS DOWN 10-YEAR CONTRACT OFFER FROM PENGUINS

It appears that Jordan Staal isn't looking at a long-term contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins at this time.

TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie reports on Twitter that Staal has turned down a 10-year offer from the Penguins, indicating to the club that he doesn't plan on signing an extension now.

"He is not prepared to enter into a contract extension at this time," Staal's agent, Paul Krepelka, told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun.

Staal scored 25 goals and 25 assists in 62 games with the Penguins in 2011-12. He led the team in playoff scoring, notching six goals and three assists in the Penguins' six-game series loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Staal is entering the final year of a four-year deal with an average annual value of $4 million per year. Though just 23 years old, under the current collective bargaining agreement he would be eligible for unrestricted free agency at the end of the 2012-13 season.
