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.

October 29, 2020
Olofsson signed a two-year, $6.1 million contract extension with the Sabres on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Olofsson had a fantastic rookie campaign in 2019-20, racking up 22 goals and 42 points while firing 127 shots on net in 54 games. The 25-year-old winger should only continue to improve during his sophomore season, making him a highly attractive option in all fantasy formats. Olofsson will continue to skate in a top-six role while also receiving major minutes on one of Buffalo's power-play units in 2020-21.

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.
