Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Clutch helper in win
Olofsson recorded a power-play assist in Friday's 5-4 win over the Devils.
Olofsson has power-play assists in back-to-back games, with his latest apple proving to be a critical one since the Devils ended up scoring a pair of unanswered goals in the third period and nearly flipped the script. While Buffalo's a longshot to make the playoffs, Olofsson's propensity for clutch moments shouldn't be overlooked; he's secured 11 game-winning goals in the past two seasons alone.... See More ...

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Big night with extra man
Olofsson scored two power-play goals in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Flyers.
Both tallies came in the third period, after the Sabres were already down 4-0, but it was still an impressive return for Olofsson after he had been a healthy scratch the last two games. The 27-year-old had only one point, a goal, over his prior 13 contests, and given his middle-six role at even strength and usual spot on the second power-play unit, Friday's performance is more likely to be a blip rather than the start of a hot streak. On the season, Olofsson has a career-high 26 goals, but only 35 points, through 66 games.... See More ... See Less

Olofsson has 22 tallies, six assists, a minus-7 rating and 106 shots on net while filling a middle-six role. His impressive scoring rate is bolstered by a 20.8 shooting percentage, so while he can help in some fantasy formats, there's still a fair amount of risk present.... See More ... See Less

Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Snaps slump with two-point night
Olofsson scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 6-0 win over the Kings.
All of Buffalo's scoring came in the third period, with Olofsson potting the second tally in the sudden eruption of offense. The 27-year-old hadn't produced a multi-point performance since Nov. 2, managing only three goals and four points during the 13 games in between, and his numbers on the season (13 goals and four helpers in 29 games) are similarly lopsided. Olofsson's providing some valuable production from the Sabres' third line, but without a top-six placement or a consistent spot on the power play, his fantasy ceiling remains limited.... See More ...

Olofsson scored a goal in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Hurricanes.
This was the first time all season Olofsson has scored just once in a game -- he had four multi-goal efforts and six scoreless outings entering Friday.

He has just one assist to go with nine goals, 33 shots on net and a plus-5 rating in 11 contests this year.... See More ... See Less
Sabres' Victor Olofsson: Notches fourth two-goal game
Olofsson scored two goals on three shots in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Penguins.

He tied the game at 3-3 at 6:29 into the third period, then rounded out the scoring by hitting an empty net with seven seconds remaining. If he can stay healthy, Olofsson should breeze by his previous high of 20 goals as a staple in the top six for the surprisingly high-scoring Sabres.... See More ... See Less
