Jamie Oleksiak's 16-year-old sister, Penny, is making waves for Canada at the 2016 Olympic Games.

She anchored Canada to a bronze medal in the 4x100-metre relay on Saturday and she captured a silver medal in the 100-metre butterfly on Sunday. Jamie took to Twitter on Sunday night and he was speechless with pride: "I don't even know what to say right now, that was one of the most intense and amazing things I've seen." Perhaps her success will help inspire him in his push to land a permanent spot on the Stars' defense corp this season.

Jamie Oleksiak tags back in Sunday against Ottawa.

This will be the young defender's 13th game of the season, and fourth in 2016. He's posted two points with 20 blocks, 21 PIMs, and 44 hits. Surely there's a better option on your waiver wire as a plug.

The Dallas Stars have loaned Jamie Oleksiak to their AHL team for a conditioning stint.

The former first round pick has been a healthy scratch in all but 11 games this season, but sending him to the minors would require him going through waivers. The short-term loan ensures that they don't have to do that.
