TSN raises eyebrows with Jeff O'Neill announcement

As announced minutes ago.



For fans who may have noticed the recent absence of former NHL forward Jeff O'Neill on TSN 1050 radio, the reason why has just been announced.

Minutes ago, a Bell Media spokesperson confirmed to The Athletic that O'Neill is "on leave" from the network, but no further details were released. O'Neill, who missed several of last week's shows, was not on today along regular co-hosts  Bryan Hayes and Jamie McLennan as the show returned to the air following the weekend. Additionally, attempts to reach out to O'Neill have been unsuccessful. 

O'Neill has worked with the network since 2013.

A veteran of 821 career National Hockey League games with the Hartford Whalers/Carolina Hurricanes and Toronto Maple Leafs, O'Neill scored 237 goals with 259 assists for a career total of 496 points.
