Panthers' Olsen Clears Waivers

News: Dylan Olsen cleared waivers Friday, Jameson Olive of FOX Sports Florida reports.
Analysis: It's a bit surprising no team was willing to put in a claim for Dylan Olsen, who has good size and youth going for him. The Panthers are surely happy to retain the 24-year-old, but with no regular lineup spot available for him with the big club, he figures to head to AHL San Antonio for now.

Panthers' Olsen Placed On Waivers

News: Dylan Olsen was placed on waivers Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: The writing was on the wall for Dylan Olsen to be dropped from the roster after Alex Petrovic was recalled from AHL San Antonio following Olsen's poor performance Tuesday against the Red Wings. The 24-year-old Olsen has only eight points in 44 games this season, but his relative youth, ample size, and first-round pedigree might offer enough intrigue for a team to scoop him up off waivers.

Panthers' Olsen Scores In Loss

News: Dylan Olsen netted his second goal of the season in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: The 24-year-old had just one point in his last 15 contests and now has just seven points through 36 games. At this point, there isn't much there from a fantasy perspective for the blueliner.

Panthers' Robak Healthy Scratch Monday

News: Dylan Olsen was a healthy scratch from Monday's game against the Wild, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Dylan Olsen was scratched from the lineup minutes before Monday's game began, despite the fact that he's recorded four assists on the season. The Panthers face the Hurricanes on Wednesday, and it remains to be seen whether Olsen will continue to sit on the bench or reenter the lineup.

Panthers' Olsen Credited With Assist In Win

News: Dylan Olsen picked up his fourth assist of the season and had a plus-3 rating in Sunday's 6-2 win over Anaheim.
Analysis: The assist was Dylan Olsen's first point in nine games and his first plus rating game in his last eight. The Calgary native has been a very steady defenseman this season for Florida playing alongside Erik Gudbranson. Olsen has been seeing second unit power play time, playing 1:01 minutes on average per game this season. So don't expect big things out of him this season offensively.

Florida's Olsen Picks Up Assist In Defeat

News: Dylan Olsen assisted on Erik Gudbranson's first-period goal in Thursday's loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: Dylan Olsen and Gudbranson formed the Panthers' third pairing in the season opener, with both blueliners logging less than 15 minutes of ice time. The 23-year-old Olsen has shown some promise as an offensive threat during his brief time with the Panthers, so he could be someone worth monitoring in deeper formats.

Panthers Sign Olsen To Two-Year Deal

News: Dylan Olsen signed a two-year deal with the Panthers on Monday.
Analysis: The 23-year-old appeared in 44 games for the Panthers last season, recording 12 points. He was acquired from the Blackhawks in November after appearing in 72 games for the team in 2011 and 2012.

Dylan Olsen, D, FLA Panthers' Olsen Is Plus-2 In Win

Panthers' Olsen Is Plus-2 In Win

News: Dylan Olsen recorded a plus-2 rating in Tuesday night's 3-2 victory over the Senators.
Analysis: Dylan Olsen saw a healthy 15:51 minutes of action Tuesday night and was on the ice for both of the Cats' goals. However, the 23-year-old defenseman has not registered a point in the past 12 games and his early season hot-streak appears to have been a mirage.

Panthers Recall Olsen

News: Dylan Olsen was recalled from AHL San Antonio on Thursday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: The Panthers sent the young defenseman to the AHL to get further playing time while the parent club was off during the Olympics. With the Panthers likely out of playoff contention at this point, expect the team to give Dylan Olsen the opportunity to play regularly over the final 24 games.

Panthers Reassign Olsen

News: Dylan Olsen has been reassigned to AHL San Antonio while the NHL breaks for the Winter Olympics.
Analysis: Dylan Olsen made a big impression for the Panthers in December with an eight-point month, but after a stint on IR in January, he struggled to find his way into the lineup thereafter. He did manage to suit up for the Panthers' final game before the break, supplying an assist and eight hits Friday against the Hurricanes. He'll look to parlay that strong performance into further playing time once the Panthers resume play Feb. 27 vs. the Capitals.

Panthers' Olsen Will Play Sunday

News: Dylan Olsen will play Sunday against the Red Wings, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: As expected, Dylan Olsen will return to action against Detroit after being activated from IR earlier in the day. The 23-year-old put up three goals and six assists in 17 games before going down with the upper-body injury.

Panthers' Olsen Activated From IR

News: Dylan Olsen (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Sunday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Dylan Olsen will presumably return to game action Sunday against Detroit, after missing close to four weeks with the upper-body injury. The 23-year-old has chipped in three goals and six helpers with a plus-4 rating in his first 17 games of the season. He may be eased back into the rotation slowly due to the extended absence.

Dylan Olsen, D, FLA

Dylan Olsen

Panthers' Olsen Placed On IR

News: Dylan Olsen was placed on injured reserve by the Panthers on Friday with an upper-body injury retroactive to Dec. 31.
Analysis: Dylan Olsen has played in 17 games for the Panthers this season and he has nine points on three goals and six assists. He was placed retroactively on IR to Dec. 31, so he will be eligible for activation Tuesday if he is ready, but no timetable for his return has been announced.

Dylan Olsen, D, FLA Florida's Olsen Cooling Off

Dylan Olsen

Florida's Olsen Cooling Off

News: Dylan Olsen has one assist in the last six games after posting seven points over six games earlier in December.
Analysis: Dylan Olsen is simply regressing back to the mean after a flash of production. He's been quiet in his brief NHL career, but he hadn't seen much power-play time, a huge indicator for defensemen scoring even on the (at times) toothless Panthers.

Dylan Olsen, D, FLA Panthers' Olsen Tallies Another Assist

Dylan Olsen

Panthers' Olsen Tallies Another Assist

News: Dylan Olsen tallied an assist on the Panthers' opening goal in Tuesday night's 3-1 victory over Toronto.
Analysis: Dylan Olsen has been on fire as of late, recording seven points in his last seven games. This kind of production is likely unsustainable given Olsen's track record; however, deep leaguers should not hesitate in riding the hot hand.

Dylan Olsen, D, FLA Olsen Keeps Scoring For Florida

Dylan Olsen

Olsen Keeps Scoring For Florida

News: Dylan Olsen notched his third goal of the season in Friday's win over Washington, giving him seven points through nine games.
Analysis: Dylan Olsen had just one assist in 28 games with Chicago last season but has been piling up points since his arrival in Sunrise. The odds of this pace continuing are slim, but he's likely to keep seeing scoring chances. Olsen might be a great story, but there's not much of a track record of offensive production to take the plunge on him.

Panthers' Olsen Notches First NHL Goal

News: Dylan Olsen scored the first goal of his career, added an assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's win over the Jets.
Analysis: With three points in five games since his recall, Dylan Olsen's shown some fantasy utility, and he has pedigree as a former first-round pick (28th overall in 2009 by the Blackhawks). That said, he's never flashed a whole lot of offensive upside; Olsen's calling card is the usage of his 6-2, 214-pound frame to clear the crease of opposing attackers.

Olsen To Make Panthers Debut

News: Dylan Olsen will make his debut for the Panthers on Thursday against the Flyers, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Dylan Olsen was recently called up on Sunday and will take the place of Mike Mottau in the Panthers' lineup. He has nine points in 21 games in the AHL this season, but is merely a stopgap option for the Panthers at this point in time.

11/24/2013

Dylan Olsen, D, FLA

Dylan Olsen

Panthers Calling Up Olsen

News: Dylan Olsen will be called up from AHL San Antonio on Sunday, Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: With Mike Weaver headed to IR, the Panthers are in need of some depth at the blue line. Dylan Olsen, acquired from the Blackhawks last week, hasn't seen much work at the NHL level recently, but should be an acceptable stopgap for the time being. With Weaver not expected to be out long, this could be a very short stay for Olsen.

Olsen Traded From Blackhawks To Panthers

News: Dylan Olsen and Jimmy Hayes were traded from the Blackhawks to the Panthers on Thursday in exchange for Kris Versteeg, the Chicago Sun-Times' Mark Lazerus reports.
Analysis: The 28th overall pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Dylan Olsen hasn't made an NHL appearance since the 2011-12 season. He's never been a high-scoring defenseman, but should bolster the Panthers' organizational depth.
