Happy Birthday, Sean O’Donnell!

Sean O’Donnell was born on October 13, 1971. This makes him the first Blackhawk to play at 40 since Tony Esposito in 1984.

Mr. O’Donnell, you are old (in hockey years, anyway). How old? The Sun-Times has dedicated an article to your aged state.

But he was pretty sure he didn’t play in the last NHL game at Winnipeg Arena as a member of the Los Angeles Kings before the Jets moved to Phoenix.

Turns out he did. He even had a shot on goal, according to the box score on hockey-reference.com.

Senior moments like that should be forgiven. Hawks defenseman Nick Leddy probably doesn’t remember what he was doing that day, either. But he was 5 at the time.
