During the off-season we will take a look at what the highlights are with the club, focusing on players and their future impacts. Then as the regular season unfolds, this will continue with player updates (including prospects) from my game re-caps, both home and away. I'm excited to launch Bingo Bites on a weekly basis and hope you are as well.
This week I want to dig a little deeper on the Eric O'Dell signing for the B-Sens, the sudden turn-around within the organization with the emphasis on defense, and the progression of Max McCormick and how far he's actually come in such a short span. Let's begin as we take a peek at what's been happening with all these Ottawa/Binghamton signings at defense.
- Defensive Logjam in Bingo?
- Eric O'Dell
The 25 year old free agent is signed to a one year, two way deal as he's expected to take place of the recently departed Derek Grant at center who has since moved on with the Calgary Flames. The Ottawa native was drafted by the Anaheim Ducks in the second round (39th overall) in 2008 and had 14 goals and 15 assists in 37 games for St. John's and also played in 11 games for the Winnipeg Jets recording an assist.
@Ski931 consistent two-way guy, shoot 1st, & can also dish with ease. Skating can improve, but it doesn't hinder him from going to the net.— Luke Wells (@LukeWells57) July 12, 2015
