Minnesota Wild

Olofsson is expected to dress as a seventh defenseman on Saturday.

Olofsson sat as a healthy scratch in the season opener in Detroit, but with Mikael Granlund battling an undisclosed injury he will draw in as a seventh defenseman tonight in Carolina. The 22-year-old blueliner had three assists in 13 games with Minnesota last season, but spent most of the year in Iowa (AHL) where he amassed 24 points (6G / 18A) across 59 contests.

The Wild re-signed Gustav Olofsson to a two-year, $1.45M deal ($725K AAV).

Olofsson spent the majority of last year in Iowa (AHL), where he amassed 24 points (6G / 18A) in 59 games. Olofosson has good size (6-foot-3 / 197 lbs) and his offensive game is improving, making him an up-and-coming two-way defenseman. This is a one-year deal and with the Wild cutting ties with Christian Folin, Olofsson will likely be in Minnesota from Day 1 this year.
