In the Mitchell-O'Donnell trade, it was a swap of stay-at-home defensemen. The only difference was O'Donnell had a
few years of NHL experience already under his belt, where as Mitchell was just breaking in.
Well, Mitchell became the player he became under Jacques Lemaire in Minnesota. O'Donnell: nothing more than a
rental, although he did fit in well with Larry Robinson's system.
He would finish the pre-lockout stretch with the Bruins, and started with the Phoenix Coyotes post-lockout. That
wouldn't last long, though, as he was traded to the Anaheim Ducks and was a key part of the 2007 Cup champions.
For 08-09, he was traded back to the team that he broke into the NHL with: the Los Angeles Kings. He would play his
1000th NHL game with them during the season.
