here is one good article from from NHL.com - O'Sullivan simplifies

ps - I have been following him for 5 years now, so i have a ton of info and articles and even some audio from and about him. if anybody is interested i can post some things, but i dont want to bore you all and i dont want you to think i am a some dumb puckbunny. just because i think he is the best player i have ever seen, doesn't mean i am not rational

here's a few words from an article:
Patrick O'Sullivan embodies what Team USA hockey players should be all about. When he was called to represent his country, the Winston-Salem, North Carolina native jumped on a plane and arrived in Latvia four hours before game time. He suited up and scored the game-winning goal in a 4-2 win over the host team at Riga Arena....Team USA needs more players like O'Sullivan. click here to read the rest, it's pretty good IHWC

-------------------
here is the news article from the Aeros when he won AHL rookie of the year and here are 2 audio links with the reaction from O'Sullivan and his coach Rob Daum

(i hope all my links work ok, that is a lot of work )

also here is a link to video from the Wild site with Patrick scoring Sully - goal

As a WILD fan stated earlier, Patrick had a shoulder injury during training camp and started in the AHL. He started (relatively) slowly, with 6 goals and 9 assists in his fisrt 20 games.

This means he went the next 58 games with 41 goals and 37 assists for 78 points.

W.O.W.

That's very interesting. That actually puts his PPG after his shoulder healed (and after he adjusted to LW) to right up there with Cammalleri's last year in the 'A'. That gives more hope that he may be able to do in his rookie NHL season what Cammalleri did last year.

Also, this article was the first I've heard it mentioned that he might've made the Wild last season (if it weren't for the injury). Thanks, LuLuBelle.

Wow is right. I'd still like to see a highlight clip of what this guy can do. I like what I've been reading about him. Hopefully he'll land a spot on the team this year.

I've been a big fan for a few years now, and I think a jersey would be a fine addition to the collection, but as he wore #9 his entire junior career, and #29 for Houston, I'll wait to see what number he is assigned

I tend to think 9 would be more appropriate than ripping 29 out from TK's grasp

I think that O'Sullivan and Kopitar jerseys would be safe investments, whereas Frolov and Brown jerseys might not be .

Regardless, I'd recommend waiting until late August or September before purchasing. It's not too bright to buy a jersey right now when that player may get traded this Summer, and there's little occasion to wear it, anyways. Also, Tubby makes a good point about not being sure which number the rookies will have.

I don't mean to nitpick, but O'Sullivan only wore #9 for his first couple of months of his rookie year. [His favorite player is Mike Modano, but his lunkhead of a father told him he wasn't good enough to wear Modano's number {nice, huh?} - anyway he switched to #89 [He was a fan of Alexander Mogilny's {of course this was 5-6 years ago way back when Mogilny was still good }]. Anyway though, he wore #89 for the rest of his junior career. IMO, The number always seemed to suite him. Maybe it was the way they always announced his name when he was in the starting line-up.

" and now, the captain of the mississauga icedogs #89......Pattt-riiiick OhhhhhhhhhhhhSullivan!!!!!!!!!"

And he wore #64 at Minnesota's camp. Pushkarev has #9 currently taken on the Kings.

Losing O'Sullivan hurts but we got a couple more coming through that will soften the blow.

I hardly believe Pushkarev has a lock on #9... and I doubt O'Sullivan will be wearing anything near #64 come September.

49 is taken!

BTW, although he was a veteran, Straka got 82, so I don't think it's impossible for O'Sullivan to get 89 if he wants it. At least once he proves himself.

My error, in looking at hockeydb and his first year that he wore 9, not noticing the second year's 89 (they didn't list numbers for his third and fourth year, but I know it was 89)

Hey, I'd give him 89... or 49 ... seriously, 89 is fine with me. I'm actually really thrilled he's on the team, because when I was in Nashville and sitting in the crowd at the draft, he was the guy I wanted to hear called out instead of Brian Boyle. To this day I have nightmares (Al Murray told me that the organization had no interest in involving themselves in the O'Sullivan story... which means that Lombardi certainly made a decision that superceded the old regieme... and for that, I AM FRIGGIN' THRILLED!)

Yeah, but the number had significance... it was to be the number of man games lost he would have if he honored his entire Kings contract
