June 2014 – Another restricted free agent this summer, Olver has elected to move on to the KHL, signing with Sochinskiye Leopardy. The smart play-making center’s return to the NHL seems unlikely at this point. Chris Bagwell


March 2013 – Provides a decent offensive threat coming from the third or fourth line on the big club, but at this point the team has him pigeonholed as a depth player…would need a couple of injuries above him on the depth chart to get a fair shot…still has upside. – Dobber


March 2012 – Olver is another US College product out of Northern Michigan (CCHA). He has silky smooth hands, decent hockey sense and a hard-nose for the net despite not being the biggest player on the ice. He has the potential to produce decent numbers at the pro level while also knowing his defensive zone. Olver is currently in second full season in the pros already seeing time up in Colorado. – Russ Bitely



Fantasy Outlook: D-


If Olver returns to the NHL, it will be on a tryout basis and he would have to be the recipient of plenty of lucky bounces.
