2013 Over/Under Number: 4 goals and 16 assists

Season Review: Oduya is definitely a defensive defenseman. He does not provide much in the way of offense with his 3 goals and 13 assists.

He had some defensive lapses in the playoffs, and definitely let a few players skate right past him. The time that stands out in my mind, is when Tyler Toffoli sped past him for a breakaway goal.

Oduya may be a big trade piece this offseason with one year left in his contract, and still a high trade value.

Grade: C-
