Sean Odie retired



One of my all time favorite Kings


Thanks for always giving 100% and always having everyone's back on the ice.





I am glad the Kings finally avenged this in these past playoffs



Have a great retirement Odie!

i know it's been awhile since i saw the Kings play live, but bob Miller sounds so different in that video...lol


totally agree, Odie has always been a favorite of mine. dude brought it every night. he is one of a few players during the 'dark' years that least made watching the Kings bearable, because of his effort and passion

Best of luck to him. Was a great guy and a pretty solid defender. He had a heroic career, 1224 games, +87, and a Stanley Cup. He made it past his 40th birthday. You couldn't ask for anything more. It is the career every hockey player dreams of.

Don't forget a Cup ring, which was very well deserved and earned.

I'm glad he wasn't one of those great foot soldiers who retired without hoisting the cup.

I hope he goes into coaching at some point. He could have a good knack for it.

Wasn't his biggest fan when he first started with the organization, but he completely won me over during his career and was a great defenseman and great influence on the younger guys (Doughty) with the Kings. A true warrior and class act.

Came here to post the same exact thoughts. I thought OD was a bit reckless and out of control early in his career, but he transformed himself into a rock on the back end who played over 1200 NHL games and was beloved in every city he played, both on and off the ice.

Enjoy retirement OD

I remember when we traded Doug Houda for him and I wasn't really happy about it. Not that Doug Houda was anything great, but we were coming off a bad season and we traded a 28-year-old proven NHL D-man for a 23-year-old minor leaguer who didn't seem all that impressive to me.

I'm glad to be wrong. O'Donnell's career dwarfed that of Houda's. We made out like a bandit on that trade. To bad we ended up losing him in the waiver draft just so we could keep holding onto the fantastic goalie tandem of Fiset and Storr.

Seriously. Looks like a total anklebender there

Farewell to one of the most honorable guys to wear a Kings uni. One of the few I would think is universally liked on any team he has been on. Cheers to a long, solid career.

I'd change my number to his out of respect if I didn't think I was a disgrace

That is still probably the worst non-call (handing out certain penalties but not others) I've ever seen in any hockey game.

The Blues have had a special piece of hate from me since then - and StL took the Rams? **** them. But revenge was so sweet with our own sweep last season... and the frickin' Stanley Cup.

suck it blues!

Forget retirement, do we have any open slots in our organization for a defenseman coach?

I don't have anything in particular against the Blues, but it was nice to sweep them for the late '60s playoffs sweeps and 1998 also.

Don't worry about the Rams. It appears we are going to steal them right back in a couple of years.
