Blackhawks ink Oduya to three year deal
CHICAGO (MCT) — The Blackhawks’ first significant roster moves of the summer involved dealing but little in the way of wheeling, which is what happens when all parties decide that things are generally just fine the way they are.
So defenseman Johnny Oduya eschewed free agency for a three-year deal and forward Jamal Mayers re-upped for one year in pacts officially announced Tuesday, basically because both veterans believed there was no place like their current home and the Hawks agreed.
It doesn’t preclude further action from general manager Stan Bowman in the summer trade and free agency markets, as Bowman reiterated that the Hawks are “not going to have the identical team we had last year.” But it preempts a couple of questions down the line.
