    Default Victor Olofsson - BUF

    I took notice of this prospect this past summer and kept quiet on here about him because I wanted to draft him in all my leagues. Now that did happen and I'm still waiting on him to be called up for his NHL debut. Anyone else seen him play or read about him? I didn't have access to his SweHL games so I checked out his highlights and noticed he has one heck of a shot. I read a bit into him on HF and others have stated he's lacking in speed and is a little gumby like Patrik Laine but is a PP specialist that could find his way onto Jack Eichel's line (Right handed playmaker + Left handed sniper). But what are your thoughts on Olofsson going forward? I thought this was one of my diamond in the rough selections but am not too sure at the moment.

    He's off to a good start in the AHL with 3 goals, 5 assists in 5 games with the Rochester Americans.

    Needs to round out his game to have success in the NHL, too one-dimensional at the moment. Excellent release, though.

    I wrote about him in all my SHL Reports last season:

    He sure looks impressive in the preseason. Yeah, I know it's preseason but the coach loves him and he seems to have a top 6 role, playing with Eichel and Reinhart last couple of games and top PP unit, going into the season. Dark horse for 30-30 this year. I think he could have an Arvidsson kinda breakout out of nowhere.
    I can't promise I'll try but I'll try to try.

    The guy looks like he is slotted to be on the Left Wing and possibly on the 3rd Line, but with Conor Sheary a bit banged up he just might move up to the 2nd line or even skate on the top line with Eichel and Reinhart if that mix works. If that is the case the sky is the limit for this guy.
