RALEIGH, N.C. (June 29, 2004) – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the Hurricanes have agreed to terms with right wing Jeff O’Neill on a one-year contract. As per club policy, no other terms were released.

“We look forward to a strong and healthy Jeff O’Neill next season,” said Rutherford. “We feel he will be a big contributor in the future.”

From 1999-2000 until 2002-03, O’Neill posted more than 60 points per season, led the team in goals in each of those seasons and led the team in points twice (2000-01 and 2002-03). In 2000-01, O’Neill posted career-highs with 41 goals and 67 points while playing in all 82 of the Hurricanes’ regular-season games. He made his first NHL All-Star Game appearance in 2003, playing for the Eastern Conference squad. His 2003-04 season was cut short when he underwent season-ending surgery on March 12 to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. O’Neill leads the team in games played (536), goals (176), points (359) and penalty minutes (472), and ranks third with 183 assists, since the team relocated to North Carolina prior to the 1997-98 season.

O’Neill, 28, was drafted by the Carolina organization with the fifth overall pick in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft. The Richmond Hill, Ont., native has played in 673 regular-season games with the franchise, scoring 198 goals and 218 assists (416 points) while accumulating 552 penalty minutes. O’Neill (6’ 1”, 195 lbs.) ranks fourth in franchise history in goals (198), assists (218) and games played (673), fifth in power-play goals (67) and third in points (416). In his nine-year NHL career, O’Neill has played in 34 playoff games, tallying nine goals and eight assists (17 points), including eight goals and five assists (13 points) during Carolina’s run to the 2002 Stanley Cup finals.
