Meet A Maverick: Henrik Odegaard

Meet A Maverick: Henrik Odegaard

March 22, 2014

At the start of the 2013-14 season the Missouri Mavericks had 12 new players on their 20 man roster. Since then one of the newcomers has stood out above the others and that's defenseman Henrik Odegaard.

Odee as he is called by his teammates was the only CHL player to participate in the recently completed 2014 Winter Olympics. No surprise then that this popular new Maverick has seen long autograph lines this season.

Henrik is quick to state that his 2014 Olympic hockey experience is his favorite hockey memory so far in his career.

The 26 year old may be a rookie in pro hockey here in the United States but he came to the Mavericks after playing 8 seasons in the Elite League in his native Norway. Odee has spent some time with the AHL's Chicago Wolves and the left-hander is working hard to return to the Wolves later in the season.

Henrik's favorite team is Liverpool of the English Premier soccer league. He admits he has followed them since he was a young kid. If not in pro hockey today Odee believes he would be a professional soccer player for them.

Still rooting Henrik on from his hometown of Asker, Norway is his mom, dad, a sister and a younger brother.

Odee first put on a pair of skates at the age of four. While on the Mavs team bus Henrik loves to sleep during those long road trips.

The Mavericks just completed last week there longest bus journey of the season traveling all the way to Brampton, Ontario Canada to play the CHL's Brampton Beast. When he is awake Odee enjoys watching movies.

His favorite movie is Wedding Crashers and No he quickly admits he has never crashed a wedding before. Henrik does cook but not very often. When he does he enjoys making tacos. Following his playing days Odee hopes to be remembered as a hard working defenseman. Henrik while new to the area has taken a liking to the Country Club Plaza as a place to visit.

Odegaard is #42 in your game program and your next chance to see this one time Olympian is on Sunday, March 23 when the Mavericks host the Quad City

Mallards. The fun starts when the puck drops at 4:05 p.m. inside the Independence Events Center.
