O’Sullivan registered six multiple-point games in January, beginning with his first career hat trick during a 5-3 victory at San Antonio on Jan. 5. He put together a six-game scoring streak from Jan. 12-22, including scoring two first-period goals in a 5-1 win over Rochester on Jan. 20, and added a goal and an assist in a 5-4 win over Chicago on Jan. 28 as Houston finished 9-4-0-0 on the month. O’Sullivan closed out January by representing the Aeros at the 2006 Rbk Hockey AHL All-Star Classic in Winnipeg.
In recognition of his achievement, O’Sullivan will be presented with an etched crystal award prior to an upcoming Aeros home game.
A second-round draft pick by the Minnesota Wild in 2003, O’Sullivan celebrated his 21st birthday by scoring a goal in Wednesday’s 2006 AHL All-Star Game. This season, he leads all AHL rookies with 25 goals and 50 points while skating in 46 games for the Aeros. O’Sullivan, a native of Winston-Salem, N.C., represented the United States at the 2004 World Junior Championships and scored the winning goal versus Canada to give the U.S. its first-ever gold medal.
