Coyotes sign veteran O'Sullivan to two-way deal
The Phoenix Coyotes added forward depth Friday with the signing of six-season veteran Patrick O'Sullivan to a one-year, two-way contract.

O'Sullivan split the 2010-11 campaign between the Carolina and Minnesota organizations, recording 2 goals and 8 points in 31 combined games between the Hurricanes and Wild. He also helped lead the Houston Aeros to the AHL Calder Cup Finals by posting 4 goals and a team-best 18 points in 24 playoff games. He recorded 19 goals and 48 points in 36 regular-season contests with Houston.

In parts of six NHL seasons with the Kings, Oilers, Hurricanes and Wild, the 6-foot, 190-pound O'Sullivan has recorded 56 goals and 157 points in 311 games. O’Sullivan established career highs in goals (22), assists (31), points (53) and games (82) during the 2007-08 season with Los Angeles.
 
O'Sullivan was originally drafted by Minnesota in the second round (No. 56) of the 2003 Entry Draft.

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
