Jeff O'Neill Decides to Move On

The Carolina Hurricanes and Jeff O'Neill had a meeting of the minds after the Flyers game on Sunday and O'Neill has decided to end his comeback bid with the Hurricanes. The forward's departure cuts the roster down to 32 players and more or less assures that the other free agent tryout, Dan LaCouture will make the team.

The Hurricanes made the announcement this morning.

O'Neill still has some skill and had the backing of the fanbase, but he didn't seem to have the energy required to play in Laviolette's up-tempo style. This decision would appear to put an official end to his NHL career, but we will see.
