The Ottawa Sen­a­tors could get one of their veteran de­fence­men back on the week­end. While cap­tain Erik Karls­son is stay­ing back in Ottawa, there’s a chance blue-liner Johnny Oduya could join the Sen­a­tors in Calgary to suit up ei­ther Fri­day night against the Flames or Satur­day against the Ed­mon­ton Oil­ers. Oduya has been skat­ing in Ottawa and has made great progress from an undis­closed in­jury he suf­fered in the club’s sea­son opener against the Wash­ing­ton Cap­i­tals last Thurs­day at the Cana­dian Tire Cen­tre. “You never know. Right now, we’re wait­ing for a phone call to see where he’s at, but I know he was do­ing much, much, much bet­ter,” coach Guy Boucher said Thurs­day. “We’re get­ting closer and closer. We’ll see for (Fri­day), maybe (Satur­day) and I’d say at worst, the very worst, Tues­day (against the Canucks at home).”
