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 didn't think it would actually work, but it ended up working, so I'm thanking my lucky stars tonight.
