Olofsson will make his season debut Tuesday when the Wild take on the Canucks, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

The 21-year-old Swede has put up a solid three goals and nine assists in 21 games for AHL Iowa, so it'll be interesting to see how the Wild choose to utilize him in their solid defensive corps.
