Observations

June 2018 – Olofsson was drafted 56th overall by the Montreal Canadiens. Olofsson is a well-rounded two-way center with good size (6-3, 190). He played a big role in Allsvenskan for Timrå, a team that earned promotion to the SHL for next season. Olofsson won the Golden Cage which is given to the top junior-aged player in the league. Olofsson is a decent skater but not great. His offensive abilities are good but not high-end. He’s one of those players that does everything well but doesn’t excel in any aspect of the game. Most likely projection at this point is that he becomes a good third-line center in the NHL.  Jokke Nevalainen
