I remember when he got traded from Florida to Anaheim right before the All-Star Game. The game was in Florida and the fans gave him a huge ovation when he was introduced. I remember noticing that he was already wearing a Ducks logo as the shoulder patch on the all-star jersey. It must be the only time a player has represented a team at the ASG before ever having played for them.
As far as comparisons I think of him as a poor-man's Sergei Gonchar. Gonchar has had a much better second half to his career but I think they both have a similar skill set.
Perhaps controversially, I would say that Ozo's career could have been ever better than Gonchar's. Gonchar learned defense; Ozo was showing signs of doing that in SJ, but he started so late...no question to me that Ozolnish had more raw talent...
