Brian O'Neill should have NHL offers soon

Expect Yale senior Brian O'Neill to sign an NHL contract soon, perhaps within the next few days. Last summer, O'Neill turned down an NHL offer from the Los Angeles Kings for the maximum amount of money allowed to a rookie under the league's collective bargaining agreement. While O'Neill quickly turned that deal down to return to school, the Kings are among several suitors interested. He already has a contract offer on the table from a HockeyAllsvenskan club in Sweden, the same league that signed Yale's Broc Little last season. But Yale coach Keith Allain said Monday he's confident O'Neill will have an NHL deal shortly.
