May 2022 – Olausson put up two assists in his first AHL contest – a playoff blowout where the Eagles put up 10 goals. His follow-up was less impressive, putting up just one shot and getting outscored in a tight game that required OT. He manned the top line in both games, a position other prospects on the team have been waiting patiently for. It is certainly promising for fantasy owners to see the scorer getting an AHL shot so quickly, but remember the similar events happening to Ranta last season who has since shown the need for more patience.

May 2022 – After posting 49 points in 55 games as an OHL rookie, Olausson is joining the AHL Eagles for their playoff run. The volume-shooting winger’s number took a small step backward after being traded from Barrie to Oshawa mid-season, but his 14 goals and 24 points in 33 games on a new squad was still very respectable. We know from experience that shooters often hit a wall when turning pro where they get less time and space to get a shot off, but if he makes the jump and sticks in pro this fall, the former 1st-round-pick will cement his status as a top prospect in the organization.

December 2021 – Olausson wasted no time acclimating to the OHL and is currently leading his team with 12 goals plus 13 assists in 22 games played. This earned him a spot on Team Sweden for the WJCs before their cancellation, where managed two points in two contests manning the top forward line. Now listed as slightly taller and heavier than his draft measurements, the winger looks to be yet another strong asset i
