O'Neill ends comeback

From Chip Alexander:
Jeff O'Neill has decided to end his comeback try with the Hurricanes, the team said today.

O'Neill, a former Canes star, came to training camp as an unsigned free agent. The forward did not play in the NHL last season but hoped to win a roster spot with the Hurricanes.

General manager Jim Rutherford said that after Sunday's preseason game against Philadelphia, O'Neill met with team management and they reached a mutual decison to release the former first-round draft pick from training camp.

The Canes' roster now has 32 players.

thats too bad, i wonder if he wasnt in shape. i still think this guy was great as a leaf, if he had of just hit the net would have been a 30 goal scorer.
