Olsen was recalled by the Panthers on Saturday. With Dmitry Kulikov (lower body) and Alex Petrovic (foot) both expected to, at the very least, miss Florida's next few games, the Panthers are in desperate need of help at defense. Olsen, who has tallied two points (one goal, one assist) in nine games with AHL Portland this season, will immediately slot into the Cats' lineup as the team's sixth defenseman, and will likely skate alongside Steve Kampfer on the Panthers' third pairing until Kulikov or Petrovic are ready to return to action.
Olsen has been returned to AHL Portland, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Olsen is a 24-year-old defenseman with a bit of upside handling the puck, but the 28th overall pick of 2009 (Blackhawks) has largely failed to translate his skills to the NHL level, having recorded just 21 points in 116 career games between the Blackhawks and Panthers. For now, he's best viewed as organizational depth for the Cats.
Dylan Olsen cleared waivers and is headed to AHL Portland, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
