Flyers GM Ron Hextall is not interested in retaining Oduya, who is a pending unrestricted free agent, Dave Isaac of the Courier Post reports. It turns out that Oduya -- who was claimed off waivers from Ottawa at the trade deadline -- truly was a rental player as the Flyers needed extra depth for the playoffs, though he didn't see any game action despite having two Stanley Cup championships with the Blackhawks on his resume (2013, 2015). Pittsburgh took care of the intrastate rival in the conference quarterfinals in six games. The 36-year-old has recorded 190 points (41 goals, 149 assists) over 850 career games between six NHL clubs.
Oduya (lower body) is healthy and could return to the lineup Tuesday against the Islanders, Dave Isaac of the Court-Post reports. You can't necessarily say the Flyers have missed Oduya, considering that he's only played in one game since being traded from the Senators. He's missed his last 13 games with injury. Though the 36-year-old is healthy, that doesn't mean he will necessarily play. Given his long layoff, and Philly's fight for a playoff spot, Oduya may find himself outside the lineup looking in.
Oduya (lower body) won't play Thursday against Columbus. Oduya will miss a fifth straight game Thursday, and the Flyers have yet to release any details regarding a potential timetable for his return to the lineup. Philadelphia should provide an update on the veteran blueliner once he's deemed fit to play, but he should be considered out indefinitely until that occurs.
Oduya (lower body) is out Monday against the Golden Knights. Oduya has only been able to play in one game with the Flyers since being claimed off waivers. The 36-year-old was able to participate in the morning skate Monday at least, so he may be able to return soon. Since the Flyers don't play again until Thursday, he'll have a few days to get ready.
Oduya is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports. The Swede has only played in one game for the Flyers since they claimed him off waivers via the Senators ahead of trade-deadline day. Oduya's next chance to play now arrives Monday against the visiting Golden Knights.
