  • Canadiens' Gustav Olofsson: Secures one-year deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/14/19) Olofsson (shoulder) signed a one-year, two-way contract with Montreal on Friday.

    Olofsson was limited to just two games with AHL Laval last season due to a shoulder injury. The 24-year-old logged a total of 56 NHL games with the Wild over three seasons, notching 11 assists and 16 PIM during that span. The Swede will get a look during training camp, but he'll almost certainly begin the 2019-20 campaign in the minors.

    Canadiens' Gustav Olofsson: Out six months

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/29/18) Olofsson (shoulder) had surgery and will miss six months, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

    Olofsson is down in the minors with AHL Laval, but he's a fringe player who could have gotten called up in a pinch during the year. However, if this timeline is correct, he's out for the rest of the regular season, which means that will not be happening.

    Canadiens' Gustav Olofsson: Traded to Montreal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/3/18) The Wild traded Olofsson to the Canadiens in exchange for Will Bitten on Wednesday.

    Olofsson was unable to carve out a consistent role with the Wild during his first three years in the organization, totaling 11 assists in 56 appearances, so the Canadiens will hope a change of scenery will help the 2013 second-round pick reach his potential. Olofsson will report to Montreal's minor-league affiliate for the start of the campaign, but he'll likely split time between the NHL and AHL this season.

    Wild's Gustav Olofsson: Waived by team

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/2/18) Olofsson (shoulder) was placed on waivers by the Wild on Tuesday.

    Per NHL rules, Olofsson would have required medical clearance before hitting the waiver wire, so he should be healthy and ready to go for AHL Iowa. The defenseman should be able to earn some NHL action this season, but figures to spend the bulk of the year in the minors.

    Wild's Gustav Olofsson: Staying positive through rehab

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/29/18) Olofsson (shoulder) has no timeline for his return, but he's still determined to start the season in the NHL, Sarah McLellan of the Star Tribune reports.

    Olofsson was injured early in the preseason when he was hit by young sniper Patrik Laine of the Jets, though the defenseman has maintained a positive attitude through his recovery, as he believes he can still claim a roster at the top level. "It's definitely my goal," he said. "I think it depends on [a] numbers game and how guys perform. But I'll be ready. I'll set myself up for every opportunity that we have. I just want to help the team win whenever that presents itself." Oloffson had eight assists representing his point total through 41 NHL contests in 2017-18.
