Hurricanes sign O’Neill
RALEIGH, N.C. — The Carolina Hurncanes resigned winger Jeff O’Neill to a two-year, $6.8-million contract yesterday.
O’Neill, 26, was to become a restricted NHL free agent Monday. He’ll earn $3.3 million next season and $3.5 million in 2003-04.
The power winger scored 31 goals and added 33 assists in 76 games this past season, when he earned $1.75 million. He had 41 goals in 2000-01.
O’Neill was also a key contributor during Carolina’s surprising run to the Stanley Cup final, leading the team with eight goals, including a crucial overtime winner against Toronto in Game 3 of the Eastern final.

TAMPA, Fla. Dave Andreychuk, who led Tampa Bay with 21 goals last season, has been advised by the NHL team that it has exercised its contract option for 2002-2003.

Andreychuk has appeared in 1,443 career games with six teams and recorded 593 goals, 654 assists, 1,24/ points and 1,033 penalty minutes.
He has 245 power-play goals, which is only four shy of the NHL record by Phil Esposito.

VANCOUVER — Centre Andrew Cassels, scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent Monday, won’t be offered a new contract by the Vancouver Canucks, says GM Brian Burke.
Injuries limited Cassels to 53 games last season.
“We’ll wait and see what kind of offers he gets and if he doesn’t get the kind of ofter he’s hoping for he can call us back and we’ll see if there’s something we can do,” Burke told the Vancouver Province.
PHILADELPHIA — Red Deer Rebels defenceman Jeff Woywitka has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Philadelphia Flyers.
Woywitka was the Flyers’ first-round pick, 27th overall, in the 2001 NHL entry draft. He’ll attend training camp and appear in NHL exhibition games.
“It is our expectation that he will probably go back and play for Red Deer next year,” said Flyers GM Bob Clarke. “He will play 30 to 40 minutes a game and they have 19 returning players so we expect that Red Deer will challenge for the Memorial Cup next year.”
Woywitka had 14 goals, 23 assists and 109 penalty minutes in 72 WHL games last season.
