  • Wild's Gustav Olofsson: Struggling to find role

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/19/17) Olofsson was a healthy scratch during a 4-1 defeat to Chicago on Sunday.

    Olofsson usually rotates with the third paring defensemen for turns in the press box, but has now been scratched in six of Minnesota's last eight games -- only averaging 10:39 of ice time in the two games he's appeared in as well, and still sits at one assist on the season. The 23-year-old has good puck moving skills and represented AHL Iowa at the AHL All-Star Game in 2016-17, but it just doesn't appear there's a role carved out for him in the Twin Cities at the moment.

    Wild's Gustav Olofsson: Healthy scratch Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/19/17) Olofsson was a healthy scratch in Saturday's loss to Washington, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Olofsson, Kyle Quincey and Mike Rikley have been rotating off days at the bottom of the Minnesota depth chart on the blue line. Olofsson had missed some games recently due to an injury, but this looks like a healthy scratch.

    Wild's Gustav Olofsson: Retreats to press box

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/4/17) Olofsson will cede a start to Kyle Quincey on Saturday against the Blackhawks, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Quincey reportedly had been dealing with some type of injury that kept him out of the last two games, but either way, this only affects the depth of Minnesota's defensive core.

    Wild's Gustav Olofsson: Will see time at forward Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/7/17) Olofsson will serve as the seventh defenseman dressing for Saturday's road game against the Hurricanes, Michael Russo of TheAthletic.com reports.

    This move was necessitated by the Wild learning of an undisclosed injury to top-six pivot Mikael Granlund. Obviously Olofsson won't be placed in that spot, but he's probably versatile enough to handle the fourth line.

    Wild's Gustav Olofsson: Signs two-year extension with Wild

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/26/17) Olofsson has agreed to a two-year, $1.45 million contract extension with the Wild.

    Olofsson played a total of just 13 games with the Wild during the 2016 campaign, but at just 22 years old, they like the upside and want to keep him around for at least another season while working on his development. He'll need to earn a much bigger role during the upcoming season in order to become a relevant fantasy option, however.
