Dylan Olsen: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Olsen could be one of the young and up-and-coming Hawks that could see minutes with the big club. He had his third year under his belt with Rockford of the AHL and might be ready to at least get some time in Chicago. He's a defense-first blueliner who is unlikely to provide much fantasy value when he hits the big club.
The Blackhawks' first-round pick (2009) got his first taste of the NHL last season. The physical crease clearer played 28 games and registered his first -- and so far only -- NHL point, an assist against Columbus. But points are not his strength -- you'll draft him for hits and blocked shots. He'll probably shuttle up and down between the NHL and AHL this year, and settle into a full-time NHL gig some time in 2013-14.
Olsen was sent down by the Blackhawks to Rockford of the AHL in October.
Chicago used their 28th overall pick in the 2009 Entry Draft to snag Olsen, a mettlesome rearguard native to Calgary. While he's all kinds of talented, the 19-year-old is a spring chicken in need of more experience, so look for him to get in another season with the University of Minnesota-Duluth in 2010-11.
