RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Gustav Olofsson.
Olofsson, the 46th overall selection in the 2013 draft, played just one game for AHL Iowa before suffering a shoulder injury that required surgery and sidelined him for the season. Olofsson is a plus-skater with good four-way agility. And he comes with a separation gear that's more typical of forwards than defenders. He has decent size (6-2, 190) and can engage physically, but he certainly needs to grow that side of his game. He'll likely need a full season in the AHL to prove he's healthy.
