Good morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! The rumors had been out there for a week or so that the Chicago Blackhawks might try to get Johnny Oduya back, and last night Stan Bowman didn’t give up much to bring back #27!

So the one thing we know about Joel Quenneville is that he likes his guys, and one of those guys is Johnny Oduya.

Back in the run to the 2015 Stanley Cup Championship, Coach Q played basically four defenseman, and now he’s got that gang back together for another run this year.

Of course, Niklas Hjalmarsson needs to get healthy which makes one nervous when he’s out the rest of this week with an upper body injury.

That being said the Hjalmarsson/Oduya pairing was a great one that helped the Hawks win 2 Stanley Cup championships, so it’s no wonder everyone is excited to see #27 return to the Chicago Blackhawks roster.

Of course there is that little thing about Q liking Michal Rozsival a little too much, but that’s another story for another day!
