Johnny Oduya Signs 2-year deal with the Dallas Stars

Johnny Oduya found a new home.  He joins recent additions Patrick Sharp and Stephen Johns as the newest player of the Dallas Stars.  Although he never played with him, another ex-Blackhawk joined Dallas this year when Antti Niemi joined the club.  Suddenly, Dallas is the new "Blackhawks South" taking over the reigns from the Florida Panthers.

Oduya signed a 2-year deal worth $7.5 million, with an average cap hit of $3.75 million.  Dallas has cleaned house lately with Blackhawk players.  Needless to say they have gotten better this off-season.  We will see how good they will be when the Blackhawks face them in the regular season.  Their first meeting will be Tuesday, December 22nd in Dallas.  The first game at the United Center will be Thursday, February 11th.

The Stars come to Chicago for a pre-season game on Saturday, October 3rd.  But as we know in pre-season, there is no guarantee what players will appear in those games.

Good luck Johnny!

But more importantly, LET'S GO HAWKS!!!
