RALEIGH, N.C. – The National Hockey League announced today that Carolina Hurricanes right wing Jeff O’Neill has been selected to represent the Eastern Conference at the 2003 NHL All-Star Game in Sunrise, Fla. on Feb. 2. It marks O’Neill’s first trip to the All-Star Game in his eight-year NHL career.

O’Neill leads all Hurricanes scorers this season with 18 goals and ranks second on the team with 35 points and 17 assists. Through games of Jan. 15, O’Neill ranked 11th in the NHL in face-off percentage (56.9%) and tied for fifth in game-winning goals (6).

“Jeff is an important part of our team,” said Hurricanes President and General Manager Jim Rutherford. “He is very deserving of this honor.”
