Wild Comments on Patrick O’Sullivan

Earlier today we posted a preview of tonight’s Kings game with the newest member of the Minnesota Wild, Patrick O’Sullivan.

Below are some comments on O’Sullivan from two other members of the Wild organization – coach Todd Richards and veteran forward Andrew Brunette. Both were asked how he’s fitting in…

Richards: Patrick has come in and done a pretty good job for us. I’ve used him in a lot of different situations, a lot of different positions with a lot of different players. He has the skill. You can see that. The thing for him – because he can help us – he makes us a better team when he’s going and he’s playing. But, it’s getting that consistent effort every night. I would say in the last two games he’s played he’s done a pretty good job for us. So, that’s what we need each and every night, him being able to make those plays. He’s a creative player, he makes our power play better and he makes the players around him better. He’s a player we can use as long as he’s out there working.

[Does any of this sound familiar?]

Brunette: I think he’s fit in real well. He has some real good offensive instincts.  That’s an area we can always use more of, just like every other team. He knows where he’s going in the offensive zone. He gets himself in the right place in the right time. So, he’s fit in nice so far.

[More comments from Brunette coming up later today, including his thoughts on the Kings]
