Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Returning Friday
Olofsson (illness) will play Friday in St. Louis, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.
Olofsson sat out Wednesday's game against the Canadiens due to a non-COVID-19 illness, but he's back taking line rushes at morning skate Friday and is good to go against the Blues. With 24 points in 42 games, Olofsson has been a nice source of secondary scoring and a decent matchup-based fantasy spot-start this season.... See More ... See Less

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Ends lengthy goal drought
Olofsson scored two goals, including the game-winner, in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Islanders.
With the score tied 3-3 and less than three minutes left in the third period, Olofsson took a cross-ice pass at the faceoff dot and snapped a shot that Ilya Sorokin couldn't handle. Olofsson then iced the game with the second of Buffalo's two empty-net tallies with 26 seconds remaining. The outburst snapped a 30-game goal drought for the 26-year-old, who hadn't lit the lamp since returning from an undisclosed injury in mid-November. It's not clear if Olofsson had been playing at less than 100 percent during that slump or had simply been unlucky, but with the monkey now off his back he'll try to regain the form that saw him score 20 goals in 54 games only two seasons ago....

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Bags two apples in limited TOI
Olofsson recorded a pair of assists in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Jets.
Olofsson's 12:41 of ice time was the lowest among Buffalo's forwards, as the Sabres deployed their defensive-minded lines more while protecting the lead for most of the night. The Swede made the most of his limited opportunities, though, helping out on Rasmus Dahlin's game-winner late in the second and Jeff Skinner's third-period insurance marker. Olofsson's last goal came back on Oct. 31, but he's been productive overall with five goals and 17 points in 20 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Offers helper in loss
Olofsson recorded an assist and four shots on goal in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Hurricanes.
Olofsson was initially credited with a goal in the first period, but it was ruled he never tipped the Henri Jokiharju shot that beat Antti Raanta. The 26-year-old Olofsson is up to five goals, 10 assists, 38 shots and a minus-4 rating in 16 contests. A point-per-game pace is likely a little too lofty for the Swede, but his prominent role should keep him at least as a depth option in fantasy.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Slings assist Monday
Olofsson posted an assist, two shots on goal and a minus-3 rating in Monday's 7-4 loss to the Kraken.
Olofsson set up Jeff Skinner for the latter's second goal of the game. The 26-year-old Olofsson has served as a playmaker with five assists in six games since he returned from a soft-tissue injury. Typically more of a finisher, the Swedish winger has five goals, nine assists, 32 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating in 14 appearances this year. He might not maintain a point-per-game pace, but his power-play skills make him worth a look in standard fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less
