Dylan Olsen is expected to be pushed by prospects Mike Matheson and MacKenzie Weegar for a roster spot.

"There will be healthy competition for jobs and Dylan's got the ability," GM Dale Tallon said. "It's a matter of him getting in a proper frame of mind and [being] physically fit." Olsen struggled to hold his position on the Panthers last season, mostly because of costly turnovers. Tallon feels the 24-year-old defender has grown since then and he'll be better prepared to play in the NHL.

On Olsen's health status, Panther coach Peter Horacek had the following to say: "He's been skating more and more. I don't think he's at the point where he can push for a whole game. We just want him to get better.'' Consider Oslen out for at least another few games.

Dylan Olsen is one of the hottest defencemen in the NHL at the moment.

With his goal against the Capitals Friday night, Olsen has a five-game point streak during which he has scored three goals and registered six points. We are no sure where this offence is coming from as Olsen registered a mere 11 points in 50 games for Rockford of the AHL last season. However we always recommend you pick up player when he is hot and Olsen is burning at the moment.
