2019 Fantasy Outlook
Olofsson showed some exciting offensive ability after coming over to North America from Sweden last season, and the 24-year-old should make a strong push for a roster spot in camp. He spent most of 2018-19 in the AHL, compiling 30 goals and 63 points in 66 games, and Olofsson stayed productive after being called up late in the season with two power-play goals and two assists in a six-game taste of NHL action. Olofsson's value will be dictated by where he lands in the lineup and his ability to earn power-play time, but don't be too quick to discount the possibility of a productive campaign if he gets off to a hot start.

Can't stop scoring

October 16, 2019
Olofsson scored a power-play goal on two shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Ducks.
ANALYSIS
This is not a recording -- all six of Olofsson's tallies this year have come with a man advantage. The Swedish rookie is making the most of his first-unit usage with all the goals, but he's not going to shoot over 30 percent forever. Olofsson has eight points and 17 shots in seven games.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
It's been a long road for Olofsson, who was drafted in the seventh round in 2014. A few injuries stagnated his development but he broke out last season with 27 goals in 50 games to lead Frolunda in the SHL. Olofsson has an outside chance to earn a spot with the Sabres, but there's no reason to rush him. He signed a two-year deal, but has plenty to prove on North American ice despite the breakout season and will likely spend most of his time with AHL Rochester. However, if Olofsson plays well, he may get called up to show the Sabres what he can do.
