Brian O'Neill made his NHL debut on Saturday.

O'Neill took the long road as he's made his debut at the age of 27. He stood out in the AHL last season with 22 goals and 80 points in 71 contests. "I think anyone who says they're not nervous is lying," O'Neill said of his first game. "After the first shift, usually you settle in and that was the case tonight and everything kind of went pretty smoothly after that, but the first shift definitely you're a little bit nervous." He had a plus-one rating in 9:39 minutes of ice time.

Brian O'Neill has been shipped to New Jersey for a conditional seventh-round draft pick.

The pick is reportedly conditional on him re-signing. O'Neill was the AHL's Les Cunningham Award winner last season, which goes to the league's most valuable player. He registered 22 goals and 80 points in 71 games with Manchester last year.

Brian O'Neill won the AHL's Les Cunningham Award, which goes to the league's most valuable player.

O'Neill has 22 goals and 78 points in 69 games with the AHL Manchester Monarchs this season. Although he was never drafted, O'Neill made the jump to the AHL in 2011-12 after a successful four-year run with Yale University. This was by far his best season in the minors, but given that he'll turn 27 in June, it's unlikely that he'll be able to establish himself as a regular in the NHL.

The Los Angeles Kings have sent Brian O’Neill to Manchester of the AHL.

The Kings now have 36 players in camp and have to get down to 23 before the start of the season. O’Neill had 26 goals and 47 points with Manchester last season. He is already 26 and has yet to play in the NHL so he seems destined to be a career minor leaguer.
