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.

Johnny Oduya

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.

Blackhawks' Oduya Will Play Friday

News: Johnny Oduya (lower body) will play Friday against the Red Wings, Tracey Myers of CSNChicago.com reports.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya practiced fully Thursday, eliminating any concerns about the injury to his foot that he sustained Tuesday night while blocking a shot. The blueliner has just two points and a minus-2 rating while playing in all 16 of the Blackhawks' games this season.

Blackhawks' Oduya Practices Thursday

News: Johnny Oduya (lower body) joined the Blackhawks for Thursday's practice, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya was injured late in Tuesday's win over the Lightning, but his return to practice suggests his ailment isn't particularly serious. If he's able to take part in pairing work during Friday's morning skate, there's a good chance he'll be available later that night against the Red Wings.

Chicago's Oduya Hurt In Victory

News: Johnny Oduya suffered a lower-body injury while blocking a shot midway through the third period of Tuesday's shootout win over the Lightning, Tracey Myers of CSNChicago.com reports.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya didn't return to action after blocking the shot off his right leg, finishing the night with a season-low 13:49 of ice time. Coach Joel Quenneville said the team would find out more information regarding the nature and severity of his injury after Oduya is evaluated Wednesday.

Hawks' Oduya Lights Lamp Saturday Night

News: Johnny Oduya scored his first goal of the season on Saturday night that gave the Blackhawks a 1-0 lead against Nashville in the Hawks' 2-1 overtime win.
Analysis: With the goal in Chicago's fourth game of the season, Johnny Oduya has a third of his projected output. He had three goals each in the previous two seasons. Goals and assists are just a bonus for Oduya. He had 114 blocks last season so that is where the Blackhawks want him to equal or go beyond that this season.

Blackhawks' Oduya Returns To Practice

News: Johnny Oduya returned to practice on Sunday after missing Friday with a lower-body injury, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya only missed one practice so the injury should not have an effect on his fantasy production this season. He scored three goals and 13 assists last season.

Blackhawks' Oduya Doesn't Skate Friday

News: Johnny Oduya (lower body) didn't take part in Friday's morning skate.
Analysis: The Blackhawks believe Johnny Oduya may be able to practice by Sunday, so it doesn't sound like he's at much risk of missing the team's Oct. 9 season opener against the Stars. The blueliner tallied three goals, 13 assists and finished with a plus-11 rating in 77 games with the Blackhawks in 2013-14.

Blackhawks' Oduya (Foot) Cleared For Training Camp

News: Johnny Oduya (broken foot) has been cleared for full activity during training camp, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: Johnny Oduya suffered the broken foot in the Blackhawks' Game 7 loss to the Kings in the Western Conference Finals, after it was struck by a shot from the opposition. A summer of rest allowed the foot to heal without too many complications, and he should be on track to reprise his role on the second pairing with Niklas Hjalmarsson when the new season begins.

Blackhawks' Oduya Sustained Injury In Game 7

Analysis: Quenneville didn't offer clarification on what exactly was ailing Johnny Oduya, but with the team eliminated from the playoffs, the defenseman will have the entire offseason to recover from the injury. After producing 16 points and a plus-11 rating in 77 regular-season contests, Oduya delivered seven points and a minus-1 rating over 19 playoff games.

News: Johnny Oduya tallied his second goal of the postseason and picked up an assist in Wednesday's Game 5 win over the Kings.
Analysis: The offensive contributions from Johnny Oduya were a pleasant surprise for the Blackhawks, after the defenseman logged just one multi-point game in the regular season. Thanks to the contest not being decided until double overtime, Oduya also finished with 29:01 of total ice time, his second-longest mark of the postseason.
