Oduya tallied a goal during Saturday's 4-3 triumph over the Avalanche.

EDGE Analysis

The steady defenseman put on a show in his native Sweden with a goal and an assist during the overseas contests against the Avalanche. The outings stand in stark contrast to his overall numbers, as he has just three points in 13 games this season, limiting his fantasy upside to all but the deepest of leagues.

Oduya (lower body) logged 16:32 of ice time in his return from injury Saturday against Edmonton.

EDGE Analysis

Oduya was relatively quiet in his return, as he recorded just one hit, three blocks and a plus-1 rating. With fellow blueliner Erik Karlsson (foot) back in the lineup, Oduya will slot into the second pairing alongside Cody Ceci versus Vancouver on Tuesday.

Oduya (lower body) is listed among the injured ahead of Saturday's road game in Edmonton, NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Initial reports suggested Oduya would be able to return Saturday, but he's not showing up on any of the defensive pairs ahead of this next contest. So far, he's only drawn into the season Oct. 5 season opener.

Oduya (lower body) joined up with the Senators in Calgary on Friday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

The news that Oduya traveled to join the team backs up the expectation that he could be ready in time for Saturday's clash with the Oilers. The blueliner last appeared for Ottawa on Opening Night when he logged 10:04 of ice time, but was otherwise held off the scoresheet. Youngster Thomas Chabot figures to remain in the lineup until Oduya is cleared to return.

Oduya (lower body) may be available against Edmonton on Saturday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

The possibility that Oduya might be ready to play Saturday effectively eliminates him from contention for Friday's matchup with Calgary. Its an encouraging sign, however, that the blueliner wasn't just ruled out for the entire back-to-back road trip. Once given the green light, the 36-year-old will likely bump Thomas Chabot from the game-day lineup, considering the youngster was called up from the minors during Oduya's absence.

Oduya (lower body) will not travel with the team to Tuesday's matchup with Vancouver, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

EDGE Analysis

Oduya's opening night injury continues to plague him, but he has resumed skating which is a positive sign. With Ottawa's defense thin already without Erik Karlsson, Oduya will likely be inserted into the lineup whenever he's cleared for play. He'll have his next shot to return Friday at Calgary.

Oduya (lower body) has been ruled out for Saturday's home game against the Red Wings, NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

He'll now have until Tuesday to prepare for the next game. The Senators travel to Vancouver for Tuesday's match with the Canucks, so Oduya's fantasy owners -- however scarce they may be -- should check back to see if he travels with the club.

Oduya (lower body) is questionable to lace up for Saturday's home contest against the Red Wings, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

The industrious rearguard sustained his injury during the Opening Night matchup against the Capitals on Thursday. If he can't give it a go in this next one, expect the freshly recalled ben Harpur to tag into the lineup.

Oduya sustained a lower-body injury during Thursday night's matchup with the Capitals and will not return.

EDGE Analysis

Oduya left for the locker room at the beginning of the third period after recording just a shot on goal for the night. With Erik Karlsson (foot) still injured, the Senators are getting thin at defense and could utilize a recall if Oduya is out for any kind of extended period.

Oduya secured a one-year, $1 million deal with Ottawa on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Oduya's contract includes performance bonuses that could earn him another $1.25 million over the course of the season. For a 35-year-old player that logged a mere 52 outings last year -- split between Dallas and Chicago -- it makes sense to have an incentive laden deal. The blueliner has cracked the 20-point threshold just three times in his career -- and just once since 2008-09 -- so fantasy owners probably shouldn't be expecting an offensively dominate campaign out of him.
