The 35-year-old O'Donnell scored 17 points in 79 games last season, his second with the Stanley Cup champions. O'Donnell had two points in 21 playoff games during the Ducks' run to the title.
The 27-year-old Huskins made his NHL debut with the Ducks last season, appearing in 33 regular-season games and 21 in the playoffs.
