Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Doles out pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson had two assists along with four shots and two PIM in a 4-3 shootout win over the Islanders on Tuesday.

Olofsson figured in on a pair of Anders Bjork goals that allowed the Sabres to force overtime after trailing 3-1. Olofsson has just one goal in his last 11 games, but he's at least managed to provide six helpers in that time. The 25-year-old has 13 goals and 32 points in 54 games on the year.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Strikes on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson scored a power-play goal on four shots in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Rangers.

Olofsson gave the Sabres a glimmer of hope for a comeback with his tally at 14:47 of the second period. The Swedish winger has 13 goals, 29 points, 113 shots on net and a minus-19 rating through 49 contests this year. He'll likely stick in a top-line role as one of the Sabres' few consistent scoring threats.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Picks up two apples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson registered two assists and two shots Sunday in a 4-2 win over the Penguins.

Surprisingly, it was the first multi-point effort since the end of January for Olofsson, who set up a pair of Sam Reinhart goals. Olofsson has 12 goals and 15 assists on the year.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Provides go-ahead goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson scored a goal on five shots in a 5-2 win over Washington on Thursday.

Olofsson jumped on a turnover at the Washington blue line and snapped a shot past Vitek Vanecek from the right circle, giving the Sabres a 2-1 lead just 1:36 into the second period. It was the 11th goal of the year for Olofsson, good for second on the club. He also ranks second on the team with 24 points in 42 games.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Ties game late
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson scored a goal on his only shot in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Rangers.

Olofsson roofed a wrist shot from the high slot to tie the game at 2-2 with just 3:41 left in the third period. It was the 10th goal of the season for Olofsson, who potted 20 in 54 games as a rookie in 2019-20. The 25-year-old had been held without a point in his previous five games entering the night.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Buries penalty shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson scored a goal on a penalty shot in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to Pittsburgh.

Olofsson beat Tristan Jarry five-hole late in the third period on what was his only shot on goal all night. It was his ninth tally of the year, second on the team behind only Sam Reinhart's 11. Olofsson, who had lit the lamp just once in his previous 14 contests entering Saturday's tilt, now has 20 points in 30 games on the year.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Bags helper Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Flyers.

Olofsson had the secondary helper on Riley Sheahan's first-period mark. The assist put Olofsson at 18 points in 24 appearances this year. He's collected 12 of his points on the power play, and he's added 53 shots on net and a minus-12 rating.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Sharpest sword in Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson registered an assist Tuesday in a 3-2 loss to the Rangers.

The primary assist to Sam Reinhart helped Olofsson regain the team lead in points, with his total comprised of seven goals and nine assists. Given his gaudy rate of production, it's hard to believe that 180 players were taken ahead of Olofsson in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Snipes again with man advantage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson scored a power-play goal on three shots in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Islanders.

Olofsson got into a one-timer from the right faceoff circle to pull the Sabres to within a goal early in the second period. It was his fifth goal of the season, four of which have come with the man advantage. In fact, the 25-year-old ranks among the top 10 in the NHL in both power-play points goals and power-play points (nine). Olofsson will take a seven-game point streak (three goals, five assists) into Tuesday's rematch against the Islanders.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Productive on power play again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson notched two power-play assists in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Devils.

The 25-year-old continues to thrive with the man advantage. Olofsson has four goals and 10 points through 10 games to begin the season, and most of that production (three goals, five helpers) has come on the power play. While that pace seems unsustainable, he is surrounded by a lot of talent on the top unit with Jack Eichel, Taylor Hall, Rasmus Dahlin and Rasmus Ristolainen -- all of whom were taken in the first eight picks of their draft years -- helping to boost Olofsson's numbers.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Could skate with Eichel
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson worked on a line with Jack Eichel during Friday's practice, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

The Sabres' current top line is Eichel, Sam Reinhart and newcomer Taylor Hall, but Reinhart is questionable to play this weekend due to an upper-body injury. If he's unable to go, coach Ralph Krueger looks as if he'll use that as an opportunity to mix up his lines, putting Eichel with Olofsson and Tage Thompson. Olofsson has a strong seven points through eight games this season, but five of those are on the power play and he'd get a further short-term boost if he spends 5-on-5 time with one of the league's better playmakers.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Rounds out scoring in road win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson scored a power-play goal on three shots Monday in a 6-1 win over Philadelphia.

Olofsson put the finishing touches on Buffalo's blowout road win, finding the net on the power play with 71 seconds remaining. It was the second goal of the season for the 25-year-old, who burst onto the scene as a rookie in 2019-20 with 20 goals and 42 points in 54 games.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Back at it
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

As anticipated, Olofsson (upper body) returned to practice Wednesday.

Olofsson missed a few days of practice after crashing into the net Sunday, but whatever injury he suffered clearly wasn't overly serious. It's a good day to be a Sabres fan, as along with Olofsson, Jack Eichel (upper body) and Linus Ullmark (not injury related) both returned to the ice Wednesday.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Expected back Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson (upper body) is expected to return to practice Wednesday, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

Olofsson left Sunday's practice after crashing into the net, but his absence isn't expected to linger past a few days. Fellow first-line forward Jack Eichel (upper body) is also scheduled to return Wednesday, at which time the pair can begin to build chemistry with offseason addition Taylor Hall.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Considered day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson (upper body) is day-to-day after leaving Sunday's practice early, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

Olofsson crashed into the net during a one-on-one drill against Rasmus Dahlin. It's encouraging that he avoided a serious injury. He has 10 days to get back to full health before the season opener against Washington on Jan. 14.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Exits practice with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson exited Saturday's practice with an apparent arm injury, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.

Olofsson sustained his injury when he crashed into the net while facing Rasmus Dahlin in a one-on-one drill. The 25-year-old Swede returned to the ice briefly, but exited practice for good shortly thereafter. The Sabres should release more details regarding Olofsson's status soon, but for now, he can be considered day-to-day.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Pens two-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson signed a two-year, $6.1 million contract extension with the Sabres on Thursday.

Olofsson had a fantastic rookie campaign in 2019-20, racking up 22 goals and 42 points while firing 127 shots on net in 54 games. The 25-year-old winger should only continue to improve during his sophomore season, making him a highly attractive option in all fantasy formats. Olofsson will continue to skate in a top-six role while also receiving major minutes on one of Buffalo's power-play units in 2020-21.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Strong rookie campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson has 42 points in 54 games played so far this season.

A lower-body injury has limited Olofsson to 54 contests, but he has still produced 42 points. That would put him on pace for 64 points in a full season. He has found success on the man advantage, which is where he's produced 11 of his 20 goals. He has been one of the brighter spots on a struggling Sabres club.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Lands on 20-goal mark
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson scored a goal on three shots Monday in a 3-2 shootout win over the Capitals.

Olofsson ripped a one-timer from the right faceoff circle just under five minutes into the game to stake Buffalo to a 1-0 lead. It was the 20th goal of the season for the rookie, who hadn't found the net in his previous eight games. A seventh-round pick by Buffalo in 2014, Olofsson has provided 42 points in 54 games in 2019-20 and owns a 15.7 shooting percentage.

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Doesn't miss time despite injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olofsson (leg) had two shots and was minus-1 in a 3-1 loss to the Jets on Tuesday.

Olofsson was felled by a leg injury Saturday against Arizona but ended up not missing any games. He wasn't a factor, however, in Tuesday's matchup with the Jets, going without a point for the sixth consecutive game. The 24-year-old has had a fine rookie season overall, producing 19 goals and 40 points in 51 games.
