Olofsson inked a one-year, two-way contract with Seattle on Wednesday. Olofsson failed to crack the Canadiens roster last season, instead spending the entire year down in the minors with AHL Laval. With the Rocket, the 26-year-old Swede tallied one goal and 11 helpers in 24 appearances. The 2013 second-round pick figures to remain a fringe roster player for the Kraken as well and is unlikely to offer much in the way of a fantasy impact.
Olofsson was assigned to AHL Laval on Saturday. Olofsson hasn't played in two weeks while on the Canadiens' taxi squad. This move will allow him to play in Laval's game Sunday versus AHL Stockton.
Olofsson was recalled from AHL Laval to the taxi squad Wednesday, per CapFriendly. Olofsson will add depth on the blue line because Ben Chiarot (hand) is out. The 26-year-old Olofsson has played just three NHL games since the 2017-18 season. He's provided five points over 10 AHL games this year.
Olofsson cleared waivers Monday, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports. Olofsson can now be assigned to AHL Laval or to Montreal's taxi squad.
The Canadiens placed Olofsson on waivers Sunday, Matt Cudzinowski of the Canadiens' official site reports. Olofsson now becomes a candidate for Montreal's taxi squad if he goes unclaimed. The 26-year-old blueliner, who appeared in three games for the Canadiens last season, had one goal and 15 assists while finishing at plus-7 over 57 games for AHL Laval in 2019-20.
