Olsen was sent back down to AHL Portland on Wednesday. Olsen was recalled on an emergency basis Tuesday, but didn't draw into the lineup against the Canadiens. With a day off before playing against the Maple Leafs, the Panthers blue line should continue to heal up enough to make Olsen surplus to the NHL team's needs.
Olsen was recalled from AHL Portland on an emergency basis Tuesday. Fellow defenseman Erik Gudbranson was spotted with a noticeable limp following Monday's contest, potentially creating a void on the blue line for Tuesday's tilt against the Canadiens. Olsen has appeared in eight games with the parent club this season, tallying a point, two penalty minutes, and a minus-1 rating.
Olsen has been returned to AHL Portland, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports. Olsen, a first-round (28th overall) pick in 2009, did not end up playing after getting called up to the parent club ahead of Saturday's game against Chicago, the team that drafted him. Fantasy players generally expect big offensive totals from their rostered skaters but Olsen's focus is more on the defensive aspect of the game.
Olsen was recalled from AHL Portland on Thursday, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Olsen played in eight games with the Panthers earlier in the campaign, and will finally receive a second go around with the parent organization after posting eight points in 19 games with AHL Portland. The 25-year-old blueliner was a former first-round pick by the Blackhawks, but hasn't really lived up to his potential to this point in his career. Olsen does have a fair amount of experience at the big league level, but he may not be with the Panthers long enough to make much of an impact.
Olsen was reassigned to AHL Portland on Monday, Jameson Olive of FloridaPanthers.com reports. Olsen has skated in eight game for Florida this season, registering one point, an assist, to go with a minus-one rating in an average of 13:45 of ice time. The 24-year-old will head back to Portland, where he figures to spend considerable time this season.
