    • Avs' Olver Signs With KHL Club

      News: Mark Olver agreed to a contract with the KHL Sochi Legends for the 2014-15 season.
      Analysis: Mark Olver spent the entire 2013-14 campaign with AHL Lake Erie, compiling 15 goals and 34 assists over 65 games. Despite the solid offensive production, the 26-year-old Olver didn't seem to factor into the big club's future plans, prompting him to pursue a new opportunity in Russia.
    • Avalanche Waive Olver On Monday

      News: The Avalanche waived Mark Olver on Monday, the Denver Post reports.
      Analysis: Mark Olver appeared in 74 games with the Avalanche over the last three seasons, but he apparently did not show enough during training camp to earn a roster spot this year. Given his experience and the fact he is just 25 years old, Olver could garner some interest on the waiver wire.
    • Olver Scores In Avs' Loss

      News: Mark Olver scored his fourth goal of the season in Colorado's loss to Detroit on Friday.
      Analysis: Mark Olver sees a scant 9:17 of ice time per game and has a modest six points through 28 games, but his goal on Friday was a deft backhand move on a breakaway to beat Jimmy Howard.
    • Colorado Re-Inks Olver For Two Years

      News: Mark Olver re-signed a two-year deal with Colorado on Saturday, reports Renaud Lavoie of RDS.
      Analysis: His fantasy value is tied to his role, but the deal includes a two-way in the first season. That suggests he could easily be in the AHL to start the season (and more).
    • Avs' Olver Performing Well As Injury Sub

      News: Coach Joe Sacco feels Mark Olver has performed well in place of the injured Matt Duchene, according to the Denver Post.
      Analysis: "He plays fearless," Sacco said of Mark Olver. "He's a smaller guy in stature, but he plays with some bite, with an edge, and goes into the hard areas of the ice. He does not shy away from physical play at all, and that's why a guy that size can have success. He's a smart player, and he's been a spark plug for us." Olver continues to see roughly 14 minutes of ice time per night, centering Milan Hejduk and Peter Mueller on the Avs' second line. With a goal and an assist in his last four games, Olver's fantasy upside is very good, especially considing the quality of his linemates. Consider plucking him from your league's waiver wire if you have room on your fantasy roster.
    • Avs' Olver Playing Top Six Role With Duchene Out

      News: With Matt Duchene out with an ankle injury, Mark Olver will center a line with Peter Mueller and Milan Hejduk when the Avs face the Predators on Thursday, according to the Denver Post.
      Analysis: With five points in just 10 games, Mark Olver is making the most of his limited opportunities this year. He scored his third goal of the season in Tuesday's 7-1 romp over Minnesota, and there could be more where that came from if he shows some chemistry with Mueller and Hejduk against the Preds on Thursday. Keep an eye on this talented youngster.
    • Avs' Olver Making Good Impression

      News: Mark Olver scored his second goal of the season during Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Kings. It was his third point in as many games since being recalled from AHL Lake Erie last week.
      Analysis: Mark Olver has been a nice addition for the Avs, proving himself to be a responsible two-way center who can also score when called upon. He's seeing about 15 minutes per game on the third line alongside Daniel Winnik and David Jones, giving him modest fantasy value in deeper formats.
    • Avs Promote Rookie Olver To Top Line

      News: Mark Olver, recently recalled from AHL Lake Erie, will skate on a line with Ryan O'Reilly and Gabriel Landeskog against the Oilers on Friday, the Denver Post reports.

    • Avs Recall Olver

      News: Mark Olver was recalled from AHL Lake Erie on Thursday, according to the Avs' official site.
      Analysis: Mark Olver, who has nine points in 15 games for the monsters thus far, will likely fill in for TJ Galiardi who was placed on injured reserve Thursday with an upper-body injury. Olver doesn't project as anything more than a third- or fourth-line forward for the Avs at this point.
    • Avs' Olver Out With Head Injury

      News: Mark Olver has been placed in injured reserve with a head injury, reports the Denver Post.
