Just a name to put away and remember as this week moves along… Sean O’Donnell.
The Blackhawks have had scouts at a number of recent Philadelphia Flyers games, and the Flyers have had scouts in Rockford.
O’Donnell, 39, is playing on a one-year contract with a cap number of $1.3M this season, and has 12 points (one goal, 12 assists) with 60 PIM. He has also blocked 60 shots this season, and could fit the role of sixth defenseman that Chicago GM Stan Bowman is looking to fill.
O’Donnell is averaging 16 minutes per game this season, of which 1:42 is short-handed.
