Johnny Oduya was a late scratch with a lower-body injury and David Rundblad was a late addition when the Chicago Blackhawks faced the Minnesota Wild here on Thursday night.

Oduya did not practice on Wednesday, taking a maintenance day. Coach Joel Quenneville said he would be fine for tonight's game, and Oduya did skate this morning. But a few minutes before puck drop Oduya was scratched.

Sheldon Brookbank paired with Niklas Hjalmarsson.

It's one more injury for the Blackhawks. They got Bryan Bickell back from an upper-body injury tonight but they'll be minus Patrick Kane (left leg) and Jonathan Toews (left arm) the rest of the regular season.
