Patrick O`Sullivan's time in his home state of North Carolina is over. The 25-year-old forward was claimed by the Minnesota Wild Tuesday after Carolina put him on waivers Monday. The release from the Hurricanes is after the jump.
O’SULLIVAN CLAIMED ON WAIVERS BY MINNESOTA
Forward had one assist in 10 games for the Hurricanes
RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that forward Patrick O’Sullivan has been claimed on waivers by the Minnesota Wild.
"We’re happy that Patrick is getting an opportunity, which didn’t arise here because of the play of Sergei, Jussi and Jeff," said Rutherford. "For him to be successful, he has to play in the top nine, and that spot did not open up for him here."
O’Sullivan, 25, has scored one goal in 10 games with the Hurricanes this season. He has two penalty minutes and is minus-1 in those games, averaging 8:51 in ice time per game. Signed by the Hurricanes as a free agent on the opening day of training camp, O’Sullivan has totaled 55 goals and 95 assists (150 points) in 290 career NHL games with Los Angeles, Edmonton and Carolina.
