They acquired Oduya from the Winnipeg Jets for a second- and third-round pick in the 2013 draft, which seems like a lot for me.
However, sometimes the under radar moves are exactly the right move to make.
In his first three games, the Hawks are 3-0, and after a rocky first period he has been very solid.
They first paired him with Brent Seabrook and things seemed like a disaster as the Maple Leafs jumped out to a 3-1 lead.
However over the last 160 minutes of hockey it has been a very different story.
So with only 15 games left until the playoffs, how will Oduya be able to help the Hawks reach their one goal?
