This could be his first and last goal of the season for Johnny Oduya. He only had three goals in 81 games last season between Chicago and Washington, but that is not what the Hawks are looking for him to do. He has eight assists and 54 blocked shots on the season which is ahead of his output for 2011-12. (Updated 3/15/13).
05/05/2013 18:35 Wild stop Blackhawks' charge with OT victory
Jason Zucker scored at 2:15 of overtime to give Minnesota a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday, pulling the Wild within 2-1 in the Western Conference quarterfinal series.
The acquisition of Johnny Oduya late in the 2011-12 helped light a fire under the Blackhawks. And the squad liked him so much that they extended him with a three-year contract extension before the start of free agency. Oduya will not give you big points -- think 15-20 -- but he is a quality shot blocker and could deliver 150 in his first full season with the Hawks. (Updated 8/14/12)
