Unfortunately, it was short lived, as he played just one game and didn't record any statistics other than three shots on goal. O'Neill is set to play his third season for AHL Lehigh Valley. In 2017-18, he posted six goals and 19 points with a plus-7 rating in 59 games there. That said, fantasy owners don't have to pay much attention to this defensemen at this time. Read Past Outlooks

O'Neill agreed to terms on a one-year contract with EC Salzburg (EBEL) on Tuesday.
O'Neill started the year on a minor-league contract with AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for which he tallied eight helpers in 28 contests, but will now head to Europe for the rest of the campaign. Selected in the seventh round of the 2006 NHL Draft by the Atlanta Thrashers, the University of Maine product played just one game in the NHL for the Flyers last season.
