Oduya will miss a couple of weeks with an upper-body injury.
Oduya left Sunday’s game in the first period with an upper-body injury and did not return. The injury will keep him out for at least two weeks, which means that Kyle Cumiskey should draw back into the lineup on Tuesday.
Oduya missed practice on Tuesday after blocking a shot in Monday's win over the Oilers. He is averaging 20:27 TOI on the Blackhawks second paring and is enjoying a strong start to the season. He has two goals and seven points in 25 games (on pace for 23 points), his career high is 29 in 2008-09.
The defenceman was directly responsible for Montreal’s first two goals in the 5-1 win over Winnipeg. His first-period pass across the middle of the ice was intercepted by Mike Cammalleri and deposited in the net. Oduya then allowed Tomas Plekanec to sneak past him in the second period and put the Habs up 2-0.
Oduya finished the night as a minus-3. His days of fantasy hockey relevance ended when he left New Jersey so don't expect too much from the Stockholm, Sweden native.
