Johnny Oduya  #27

Chicago Blackhawks  Defenseman
NUMBER: 27 BIRTHDATE: October 1, 1981  (AGE 32)
HEIGHT: 6' 0" BIRTHPLACE: Stockholm, Sweden
WEIGHT: 190 DRAFTED: WSH / 2001 NHL Entry Draft
Shoots: Left ROUND: 7th   (221st overall)
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'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
