Observations:

November 2017 – It seems that one game will have to suffice for Will O’Neill in his debut stint in the NHL as he was recently returned to the Flyers’ AHL affiliate. He was a good flier, no pun intended, for the team after having racked up 50 points through 74 games for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins this past year. Edric Joseph

July, 2012 – O’Neill enjoyed an impressive AHL debut after signing with the Jets last spring, with three points and nine penalty minutes in seven games with St. John’s. O’Neill is an offensive-minded defenseman whose best attribute is his hockey sense.  He loves to be part of the offensive play, as his 82 assists in 141 career games at Maine will attest. With only average size and skating ability, he will have to make up for it with his competitiveness and aforementioned intelligence.

 

Fantasy Outlook: D

 

His mediocre physical skills limit his ceiling, but don’t be surprised if he wills his way to Winnipeg.
