Winnipeg Jets agree to terms with forward O'Dell to one-year, two-way deal

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Jets agreed to terms with forward Eric O'Dell on a new one-year, two-way contract Tuesday worth US$600,000 at the NHL level.

O'Dell, 23, had 29 goals and 26 assists in 59 games with the AHL's St. John's IceCaps last season.

The native of Ottawa was originally selected by the Anaheim Ducks in the second round, 39th overall, in the 2008 NHL draft.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
