Rest in Peace Sam Oden

On Tuesday Morning the Canadians tragically lost teammate and friend Sam Oden. Sam had a passion for hockey and was a respected by his teammates and coaches. Many teammates say they will miss his smile, laughter, happiness  he brought to the dressing room and will miss his snap shot that was a big piece of his game. No one after today will wear #4 for the Canadians again in memory and honour of Sam.

Our thoughts, prayers, and condolences are with the past teammates of Sam, the Oden family, and friends during this time.

Rest in Peace Sam “Big Odes” Oden
