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.
Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
