Johnny Oduya: Two-Year Deal With Dallas

News: Johnny Oduya (elbow) signed a two-year, $7.5 million contract with the Dallas Stars on Wednesday, Yahoo!Sports reports.
Analysis: Although he reportedly wanted to return to Chicago, the team couldn't fit him into their financial plans and the two-time Stanley Cup winner was forced to move on. Johnny Oduya recorded just 10 points in 76 games last season, but he serves as a large upgrade to the Dallas blueline in terms of discipline and experience and should step right in as a top-four defenseman for his new club.

Blackhawks' Oduya Will Become Free Agent

News: Johnny Oduya (elbow) will pursue free agency rather than negotiating a deal to re-sign with the Blackhawks, ESPN reports.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya accumulated nine goals, 34 assists, and a plus-31 rating in his three and a half seasons with the Blackhawks, but it appears his time with the club may be coming to an end. While there's still a chance the team re-signs Oduya, their challenging cap situation will make it difficult to meet the defenseman's asking price. He's expected to claim a top-four role on defense wherever he ends up landing.

Blackhawks' Oduya Played Through Elbow Injury

News: Johnny Oduya revealed Tuesday that he played through a tear in his left elbow during the final three games of the Stanley Cup Finals, ESPN Chicago's Scott Powers reports.
Analysis: The injury forced Johnny Oduya out for a part of a period during Game 3 against the Lightning on June 8, but he was able to tough it out in Games 4 through 6, playing more than 24 minutes in each contest. Oduya said that the ailment left him without much power in his shot, but it didn't stop him from providing his typical gritty play on the back end, as he blocked 14 shots in those last three games. Monday's series clincher could be the last game for Oduya in a Blackhawks uniform, as he's slated to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and the team has little cap room to retain him.

Hawks' Oduya Guts It Out In Game 4

News: Johnny Oduya, who suffered an upper-body injury in Game 3 on Monday, skated in the Blackhawks' 2-1 Game 4 victory on Wednesday, but he was noticeably favoring his left arm, CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Despite the injury, Johnny Oduya skated almost 26 minutes. In addition, he tied Duncan Keith for the team lead with five blocked shots. It will definitely help Oduya with an extra day of rest between Game 4 and Game 5 on Saturday night in Tampa Bay.

Blackhawks Confirm Oduya 'Likely' To Play

News: Coach Joel Quenneville confirmed that Johnny Oduya (upper body) is "likely" to play in Wednesday's Game 3 against the Lightning, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya was absent from the Blackhawks' morning skate, but that was likely designed to reduce the possibility of worsening the existing injury he suffered in Monday's Game 2. There was some belief that Oduya might be replaced in the lineup by Kimmo Timonen, who has been confirmed to make his series debut Wednesday, but it now appears Kyle Cumiskey rather than Oduya will head to the press box.

Blackhawks' Oduya 'OK' For Game 4

News: Coach Joel Quenneville said Johnny Oduya will be OK for Game 4, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya left Monday's Game 3 in the second period with an undisclosed injury, but he returned to action in the final period. The team, which is not practicing Tuesday, has remained mum regarding the injury, but as of now it appears Oduya is set to play in Game 4.

Hawks' Oduya Back For Third Period Of Game 3

News: Johnny Oduya returned to the ice with the Blackhawks for the third period Monday, LNH.com's Arpon Basu reports.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya missed the end of the second period after suffering some sort of injury, but hey, it's Game 3 of the Finals -- we'd expect nothing less than to see him get right back out there.

Hawks' Oduya Hurt In Game 3

News: Johnny Oduya went to the locker room and didn't play the final 7:46 of the second period Monday in Game 3 against the Lightning.
Analysis: There's no word yet on what sort of injury he may have suffered, and Johnny Oduya could still return in the third period, but he looked awfully unhappy on the bench before departing. The veteran blueliner has no goals and five assists through 19 playoff games so far this year.

Blackhawks' Oduya Assists In Game 2

News: Johnny Oduya picked up a helper in Saturday's Game 2 defeat to the Lightning.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya set up Brent Seabrook's game-tying third-period goal, giving him his fifth point of the postseason. All of Oduya's offense has come in the form of assists, which isn't particularly surprising given that he notched all of two goals during 76 regular-season contests.

Blackhawks' Oduya Assists On Game Winner

News: Johnny Oduya was credited with a secondary assist Tuesday on Marcus Kruger's game-winning goal in triple overtime against the Ducks.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya set up a Brent Seabrook shot attempt that Kruger steadied with his stick and poked past Ducks goalie Frederik Andersen, ending the game after almost 110 minutes of action. The blueliner finished the night with 46:06 of ice time, the highest total of his career.

Blackhawks' Oduya Sets Up Goal In Win

News: Johnny Oduya picked up an assist in Sunday's Game 3 victory over the Predators.
Analysis: Considering Johnny Oduya had been held off the score sheet over the previous seven games, he shouldn't be counted upon to provide consistent offense for the Blackhawks throughout the postseason. Oduya's 10 points during the regular season represented the lowest total of his career for a non-lockout year.

Hawks' Oduya Collects Two Assists

News: Johnny Oduya collected a pair of helpers in Friday's loss to Columbus.
Analysis: It was the first multi-point game of the season for Johnny Oduya, who has just eight points in 68 games on the season. He's more valuable to the Blackhawks than he is to fantasy owners, but his 114 blocked shots make him of use in some very deep leagues.

Hawks' Oduya At Full Speed In Return

News: Johnny Oduya, who missed six games because of an upper-body injury, returned Thursday night and was on the ice for almost 21 minutes in the Blackhawks' victory over the Coyotes.
Analysis: Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said that Johnny Oduya would be on the ice for his usual minutes and that was the case. While he had his usual minutes, Oduya had a pair of giveaways so he was a little rusty. He had a shot on goal, a hit, and two blocked shots. Oduya should be much better Saturday against the Sharks.

Blackhawks Activate Oduya

News: Johnny Oduya (upper body) has been activated from injured reserve and will play Thursday against the Coyotes, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya missed six games after sustaining the injury in a Feb. 22 loss to the Bruins. Coach Joel Quenneville indicated that he expects Oduya to be back at full speed right away, so look for the blueliner to see his usual 20 minutes in his return to the lineup.

Thursday Return Confirmed For Hawks' Oduya

News: Coach Joel Quenneville confirmed that Johnny Oduya (upper body) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Coyotes, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: All that awaits for Johnny Oduya is a formal activation from injured reserve, which should occur after Thursday's morning skate. Oduya, who has missed the Blackhawks' last six games, is expected to pair up with Niklas Hjalmarsson in his return.

Thursday Return On Tap For Hawks' Oduya

News: Johnny Oduya (upper body) is expected to return to the lineup Thursday against the Coyotes, Mark Potash of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya has sat out the Blackhawks' previous six games with the upper-body injury, but looks to be trending toward a return after he was able to resume practicing with the team over the weekend. With Oduya in the fold, the Blackhawks will have their optimal six blueliners healthy. He'll more than likely replace Michal Rozsival or David Rundblad on the team's third pairing next to Niklas Hjalmarsson.

Blackhawks' Oduya Practices Saturday

News: Johnny Oduya (upper body) practiced with the Blackhawks on Saturday, NHL.com's Brian Hedger reports.
Analysis: He's been seemingly ruled out of playing Sunday's game against the Rangers, but Johnny Oduya seems to be trending toward a return to the lineup at some point next week.

Blackhawks' Oduya Hopes To Return Next Week

News: Johnny Oduya (upper body) hopes to return next week, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya was considered doubtful for the upcoming weekend, and his words seemingly confirm that he won't suit up. With Chicago off after the weekend until next Thursday's game in Arizona, Oduya should have a decent amount of time to get closer to full health. He was able to help his cause by participating in practice Friday.

Blackhawks' Oduya Doubtful For Weekend

News: Johnny Oduya (upper body) is doubtful to play in either of the Blackhawks' two games this weekend, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya has increased the intensity of his workouts in recent days, but he's still being held out of full practices with the rest of the team. If he continues to progress with his skating over the weekend, it's conceivable that he could be activated from IR at some point next week.

Blackhawks' Oduya Skates On Own

News: Johnny Oduya (upper body) skated on his own Monday morning, CSN Chicago's Tracey Myers reports.
Analysis: While Johnny Oduya is expected to miss at least another game or two, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said the defenseman's Monday participation is a good sign. Oduya may thus stand some chance to return for Friday's game against the Oilers.

Blackhawks Place Oduya On IR

News: Johnny Oduya (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya has missed nearly a week with the injury and is slated to miss at least another one, so the decision to place him on IR doesn't register as much of a surprise. The transaction will open up a spot on the 23-man roster for an extra player, should the Blackhawks choose to fill the vacancy.

Chicago's Oduya Sidelined

News: Johnny Oduya will miss a couple of weeks due to an upper-body injury.
Analysis: With just five points and 26 PIM in 60 games to date, Johnny Oduya's absence is of more import to Chicago's blue line depth than it is to fantasy owners.

Hawks' Oduya Could Miss Some Time

News: Johnny Oduya, who left the game with an upper-body injury on Sunday in the first period, could miss a few games, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya played one shift during the first period on Sunday. He left the ice at 2:34 of the first period and went to the locker room shortly afterward. He did not return to the game. "We'll know more tomorrow," Hawks' coach Joel Quenneville said. "We'll see how he is. Upper body, but we'll see. Might miss a few [games]." Oduya has two goals, three assists and is a minus-9 in 60 games this season. He is one of nine Blackhawks not to miss a game this season.

Hawks' Oduya Tallies Assist

News: Johnny Oduya registered an assist in Friday's 4-1 win over the Ducks.
Analysis: While points are always a nice bonus for Johnny Oduya, his true value lies in his skills as a defender. Oduya has posted 42 hits, 88 blocked shots and five points through 48 games with the Blackhawks this season.

Hawks' Oduya Will Play Saturday

News: Johnny Oduya (lower body) will play Saturday against the Kings, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: The veteran defender is banged up, but will tough it out once again on Saturday against the Kings. The veteran defender has just two points and a plus-1 rating through 23 games this season.
