    by Scott King @ScottKingMedia Tuesday evening Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman worked some more of his trade deadline magic in acquiring former Hawks defenseman Johnny Oduya from the Dallas Stars in exchange for prospect Mark McNeill and a conditional fourth round draft pick. Oduya won two Stanley Cups with Chicago (2013 and 2015), but the Swedish blue-liner has been sidelined with a lower-body injury on and off in Dallas and has only played in 37 games this season.
