    Panthers' Dylan Olsen: Sent down to AHL

    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.

    Panthers' Dylan Olsen: Recalled by Panthers

    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.

    Panthers' Dylan Olsen: Sent back to AHL

    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.

    Panthers' Dylan Olsen: Recalled on emergency basis

    Olsen was recalled from AHL Portland on Friday on an emergency basis. Olsen's recall was prompted by an injury to Steve Kampfer, who will not travel to Boston for Saturday's game. Olsen will at least play Saturday, but depending on whether or not Kampfer is able to join the team in the middle of the road trip, Olsen could easily feature in each game of the four-game trip. A former first-round pick, Olsen possesses a large frame and an above-average shot from the point.

    Panthers' Dylan Olsen: Recalled by Panthers on Saturday

    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.

    Panthers' Dylan Olsen: Returns to AHL

    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.

  • Clears waivers

    News: Dylan Olsen cleared waivers and is headed to AHL Portland, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
    Analysis: Dylan Olsen split time between the Panthers and AHL San Antonio last season, playing 44 games in the NHL and posting two goals and six assists in that span with a minus-7 rating. The former first-round pick in 2009 hasn't really materialized the way the team might've hoped, but at just 24-years-old, the big bodied defenseman could still become a NHL player down the road. He could be one of the first defensemen called up when injury strikes the Panthers' blue line.
  • Panthers' Olsen Clears Waivers

    News: Dylan Olsen cleared waivers Friday, Jameson Olive of FOX Sports Florida reports.
    Analysis: It's a bit surprising no team was willing to put in a claim for Dylan Olsen, who has good size and youth going for him. The Panthers are surely happy to retain the 24-year-old, but with no regular lineup spot available for him with the big club, he figures to head to AHL San Antonio for now.
  • Panthers' Olsen Placed On Waivers

    News: Dylan Olsen was placed on waivers Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
    Analysis: The writing was on the wall for Dylan Olsen to be dropped from the roster after Alex Petrovic was recalled from AHL San Antonio following Olsen's poor performance Tuesday against the Red Wings. The 24-year-old Olsen has only eight points in 44 games this season, but his relative youth, ample size, and first-round pedigree might offer enough intrigue for a team to scoop him up off waivers.
  • Panthers' Olsen Scores In Loss

    News: Dylan Olsen netted his second goal of the season in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals.
    Analysis: The 24-year-old had just one point in his last 15 contests and now has just seven points through 36 games. At this point, there isn't much there from a fantasy perspective for the blueliner.
