Oduya headed to Blackhawks.

The Winnipeg Jets have traded defenseman Johnny Oduya to the Chicago Blackhawks for a second and third round pick in 2013.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Oduya is a UFA this summer and evidently the Jets feel they needed to get something for him now, rather than risk losing him for nothing. He should fill that need for experienced depth on the Blackhawks blueline.
