Observations

July 2020 – In his first AHL season, Olivier delivered as expected for the Admirals. His physicality blended right in with the hard nosed Milwaukee style of play and he showed flashes of his scoring touch potting 10 goals over 56 games. Olivier has a presence on the ice as he moves well for a bigger winger and initiates contact at every opportunity. His 95 penalty minutes were second on the team and speak to his strengths as a power forward. Olivier did see an eight-game stint in Nashville later in the season, which bodes well for his potential down the road as he has made a strong impression on the organization in his initial season.

July 2019 – Olivier signed a two-year ELC with Nashville in May.  Olivier is known as a hard working power forward that can clean up loose pucks down low.  He displays strong puck pursuit on the forecheck and likes to engage in physical play. His board work is a strong suit and he is known to fight on occasion, which should add some depth toughness for the Predators.  Olivier is expected to spend the majority of his pro career in the AHL and serve as a call-up in relief should Nashville need support.  Nicholas Kawka
