  • Kraken's Gustav Olofsson: Placed on waivers

    Per Chris Johnston of TSN, Olofsson hit the waiver wire Thursday.

    Olofsson has played in 62 NHL games since the 2015-16 season, including three games with the Kraken last season. He failed to hit the scoresheet in 2022-23 and has 11 assists in his NHL career.

  • Kraken's Gustav Olofsson: Inks two-year deal

    Olofsson signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Kraken on Tuesday.

    Olofsson was set to become an unrestricted free agent Saturday. He spent the bulk of 2022-23 with AHL Coachella Valley, though he played in just 20 games and picked up six points in the regular season. Olofsson also had five points in 26 playoff contests as the Firebirds made it to the Calder Cup Finals. He'll likely again serve as defensive depth for the Kraken organization.

  • Kraken's Gustav Olofsson: Sent back down

    Olofsson is no longer listed on the Kraken's roster, indicating he's been sent down to AHL Coachella Valley on Saturday, Scott Malone of Root Sports reports.

    Olofsson played in the Kraken's last two games, notching four shots on goal, four blocked shots and two hits. The 28-year-old moves off the roster with Jamie Oleksiak set to return Sunday after serving his three-game suspension.

  • Kraken's Gustav Olofsson: Jumps back to NHL

    Olofsson was called up from AHL Coachella on Monday, Alison Lukan of Root Sports reports.

    Olofsson's promotion comes as the team remains without Jamie Oleksiak (suspension) for the next two games. Even with Olofsson's joining the roster, he will likely serve as an emergency depth option and figures to watch from the press box as a healthy scratch.

  • Kraken's Gustav Olofsson: Returns to AHL

    Olofsson was sent to AHL Coachella Valley on Friday.

    Olofsson's demotion freed up a roster spot for the Kraken, who also activated Philipp Grubauer (lower body) off the injured reserve list. Olofsson had a plus-1 rating and two shots in 10:14 of ice time in Sunday's 3-2 overtime loss to Winnipeg. That was the 27-year-old defenseman's first game in the NHL since the 2019-20 campaign.

  • Kraken's Gustav Olofsson: Joins big club

    Olofsson was called up from AHL Coachella Valley on Thursday.

    Jamie Oleksiak (lower body) went on injured reserve in a corresponding move. Olofsson will likely serve as defensive depth while with the big club. He has four assists through eight games with the Firebirds.

  • Kraken's Gustav Olofsson: Waived by Kraken

    Olofsson was placed on waivers Sunday, per CapFriendly.

    Olofsson has 11 points in 59 career NHL games, but he hasn't appeared at the top level since the 2018-19 season. Expect him to spend most of the 2022-23 campaign in the minors once again.

  • Kraken's Gustav Olofsson: Pens new deal with Seattle

    Olofsson signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Kraken on Thursday, per PuckPedia.

    Olofsson didn't get into a game with the Kraken in 2021-22. He logged nine points in 41 games with AHL Charlotte, and he'll likely be in line to continue in the bus league with AHL Coachella Valley next season.

  • Kraken's Gustav Olofsson: Placed on waivers

    Olofsson was waived by the Kraken on Saturday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    The 26-year-old is a veteran of 59 NHL games across parts of four seasons. Olofsson should serve as organizational defensive depth for the Kraken if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

  • Kraken's Gustav Olofsson: Signs one-year deal

    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.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Olofsson: Assigned to AHL Laval

    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.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Olofsson: Leaps to taxi squad

    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.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Olofsson: Clears waivers

    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.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Olofsson: Exposed to waivers

    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.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Olofsson: Returns to practice

    Olofsson (undisclosed) is on the ice for Saturday's practice, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Olofsson missed the Canadiens' last two practices with an undisclosed issue. The 26-year-old blueliner only appeared in three games with the big club last campaign, so he'll likely either end up on Montreal's taxi squad or in the minors to start the 2020-21 season.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Olofsson: Won't practice Thursday

    Olofsson (undisclosed) has been deemed unfit to participate in Thursday's practice, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Olofsson only appeared in three games with the Canadiens last season and is nothing more than organizational depth at this stage in his career, so there's no reason for fantasy managers to monitor his status.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Olofsson: On camp roster

    Olofsson will take part in Phase 3 training camp with the Habs.

    Olofsson spent the bulk of the season with AHL Laval, for which he notched one goal and 15 helpers in 57 appearances. Selected by Montreal in the second round of the 2013 NHL Draft, the 25-year-old Swede should be in the mix for a roster spot heading into the 2020-21 campaign but may need to continue logging time in the minors.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Olofsson: Lands one-year extension

    Olofsson agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract extension with Montreal on Wednesday.

    After playing in 41 games for the Wild back in 2017-18, Olofsson only managed to break into three games this season for Montreal in which he averaged a paltry 8:06 of ice time. If the organization allows pending UFA Christian Folin to walk in the offseason, it could open the door for Olofsson to compete for a roster spot ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Olofsson: Shipped down to minors

    Olofsson was reassigned to AHL Laval on Wednesday.

    Olofsson averaged a mere 8:06 of ice time in three games with the Habs, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to see him headed back to the minors, where he should log big minutes for the Rocket against AHL Cleveland on Wednesday. With Victor Mete (ankle) still on the shelf, Olofsson figures to be recalled ahead of the Habs' clash with Colorado on Thursday.

  • Canadiens' Gustav Olofsson: Makes Habs debut Saturday

    Olofsson made his Montreal debut Saturday, recording one shot and three blocked shots while finishing minus-2 over 11:16 of ice time in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Flyers.

    Olofsson is a recent call-up from AHL Laval to help out a beleaguered blue line, which suffered an injury Saturday when Victor Mete (lower body) was forced to leave the game. Olofsson will remain with the Canadiens for now but will likely serve as part of the third defensive pairing or as a spare part. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Olofsson played 56 games over three seasons with the Wild, posting 0-11-11 totals.
