Sean O'Donnell is one half of the ICWF tag team, The Suicide Kings. The Kings are known for their high flying arsenal, but they are also extremly youthful and inexperienced. However, the ICWF sees potential in the Suicide Kings, and has sent them to be mentored by a former tag team champion in Bryce Glacier.

O'Donnell was viewed as a top independent talent in 2006 by AmericanProGrappler.com as he lit up the Chicago and Midwest independent scene. In Minnesota, he caught the eye of ICWF talent scouts. They immediatly signed him and placed him in a tag team with another hot independent from the midwest, "The Swan" Ryan Swanson.

O'Donnell is the more unorthodox of the Kings. He is much more of a loose cannon than his partner, Ryan Swanson. O'Donnell is also more apt to brawl, even if it means him giving up quite a bit in the size department. That is not to say that he won't take to the air. In fact, O'Donnell seems to live for it, especially if it inflicts much pain on his opponents. But he never looks as smooth as Swanson. In fact, he doesn't do anything particularly great, but does well at just about everything. He refers to himself as "nothing special."

Counter to Swanson's cool professionalism, O'Donnell is very rough around the edges and is prone to going into fits of anger. (Even in the ring.) In fact, that could be the biggest downfall of O'Donnell. His temper can get him into problems.

Playing career

O'Donnell played major junior in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) with the Sudbury Wolves for the three seasons. Following his third and final OHL season, he was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft.

O'Donnell immediately turned pro the following season with the Sabres' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Rochester Americans. After three seasons in the Sabres organization, he was traded to the Los Angeles Kings in the 1994 off-season for Doug Houda. As a result, O'Donnell began playing in the International Hockey League (IHL) with the Kings' minor league affiliate, the Phoenix Roadrunners. During his first season in the Kings organization, he made his NHL debut in 1994–95, appearing in 15 games and recording 2 assists. From then on, O'Donnell established himself as a full-time NHLer, playing the following five seasons with the Kings.

On June 23, 2000, O'Donnell was released by the Kings into the 2000 NHL Expansion Draft and he was claimed by the Minnesota Wild. Joining the expansion Wild, O'Donnell was named the franchise's first captain for the month of October as part of a rotating monthtly captaincy. Late in the season, however, he was dealt at the 2001 trade deadline to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for defenceman Willie Mitchell. O'Donnell went on to appear in the 2001 Stanley Cup Finals with the Devils, but the championship to the Colorado Avalanche.

In the off-season, O'Donnell became a free agent and signed with the Boston Bruins. In his first season as a Bruin, O'Donnell recorded NHL career-highs with 22 assists and 25 points in 80 games. After three seasons in Boston, he became a free agent once more and signed with the Phoenix Coyotes. For the second time in his career, he was dealt at the trade deadline in his first season with a new club, as the Coyotes traded him to the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in exchange for Joel Perrault. The following season, in 2006–07, O'Donnell won a Stanley Cup championship with the Ducks.

After another season with the Ducks, in which O'Donnell played in his 900th NHL game on January 18, 2008, against his former team, the Minnesota Wild, he was traded in the 2008 off-season to the Los Angeles Kings for a draft pick in 2009. Playing in his first season with the Kings, O'Donnell then achived the 1000-game mark on March 14, 2009 against the San Jose Sharks at the HP Pavilion in San Jose.
