Making his first Olympic appearance, Oduya said: "It feels more of a bonus (making the Olympic Team); it's something where I really didn't know what to expect getting picked. I'm happy and it'll be a tremendous experience -- something that a lot of guys don't have a chance to do."
He represented Sweden, winning a bronze medal at the 2009 World Championships; his three goals tied for the team lead among defensemen.
I challenged him to a goalie fight when we chatted before the game, but he didn't want to go. It was strange to see him at the other end of the ice, but I'm sure he felt the same way looking down at our end.
