Olofsson was recalled to the Wild on Monday.

Olofsson got into two NHL contests last season but has yet to suit up with the Wild this year. He has nine points in 21 points in the AHL (good for ninth among AHL rearguards) and is reportedly over a knee injury suffered in September. With the Wild on a four-game, 10-day road swing, Olofsson has a decent shot at dressing against Calgary, Edmonton and/or Toronto, but isn't expected to play Tuesday against Vancouver.
