Amateur years

His father, John O'Sullivan, a Toronto native, played for the minor-league Winston-Salem Thunderbirds of the Atlantic Coast Hockey League. Off the ice, he was well known for the abuse he took from his father from the time he was nine years old. The abuse continued up to the time he started playing for the Mississauga Ice Dogs of the Ontario Hockey League. Some notable acts were mainly verbal and physical abuse when Patrick had an off-game. There were also reports of John threatening and intimidating him. The abuse escalated at an OHL game where John was screaming, swearing and pounding on the glass. The abuse reached a point where Patrick pressed charges against his father and filed a restraining order against him.

Patrick was projected to be a first round draft pick in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

Professional career

He was drafted in the second round 56th overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the Minnesota Wild. He played his first season for their AHL affiliate, the Houston Aeros, during the 2005–06 season. He had a great season, scoring 47 goals, with a total of 93 points, breaking all Houston Aeros' rookie records.

During the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, he was traded by the Minnesota Wild along with their 17th overall pick (Trevor Lewis), obtained in a trade with the Edmonton Oilers for Dwayne Roloson, to the Los Angeles Kings for Pavol Demitra.

He began the 2006–07 NHL season with the Kings when he made his NHL debut on October 6, 2006, and became the first person from North Carolina to play in the NHL. On November 2, 2006, he was assigned to the Manchester Monarchs, the Kings' AHL affiliate. On January 25, 2007, he was recalled by the Los Angeles Kings from the Monarchs.

On March 4, 2009, O'Sullivan was traded by the Kings with Calgary's second-round pick to the Carolina Hurricanes for Justin Williams, then was traded by the Hurricanes along with a second-round pick to the Edmonton Oilers for Erik Cole and a fifth-round pick.
