Oduya grabbed an assist, a plus-2 rating and a minor penalty in Tuesday's loss at the hands of the lowly Maple Leafs. Oduya has never been a big scorer and his roughly shot per game pace is in line with his numbers historically. However, his ice time is on an alarming downward trend. After crossing 20 minutes in eight of his first 13 games in Dallas, he's been below 20 in the last three, including a game at 16:19 and one at 17:22. The sky isn't falling yet, but it's an issue to watch if you're rostering the low-scoring veteran.
Oduya grabbed his first assist of the season, along with a shot, three blocked shots and 20:05 of ice time in Thursday's win over the Canucks. Oduya's production hasn't been outstanding. Through 10 games he has just one goal and one assist to go along with an average of one shot per game. He's also not consistently crossing the 20-minute threshold for ice time. He's playing well for the team, but his fantasy production is below expectations.
Johnny Oduya led the team in blocked shots, with four, through 20:35 of ice time.
It appears Johnny Oduya will start the season paired with Jason Demers on the Stars' second defensive pairing, according to Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News.
Johnny Oduya (elbow) signed a two-year, $7.5 million contract with the Dallas Stars on Wednesday, Yahoo!Sports reports.
