Patrik Bexell of Eyes on the Prize resides in Sweden and got some time with Buffalo Sabres prospect Victor Olofsson. The 2014 seventh-round pick of the Sabres has been playing really well for Frolunda of the SHL this season.
He has 15 goals and 24 points in 27 games thus far. Last season Olofsson registered nine goals and 27 points in 51 games for Frolunda.
The 22-year-old has been a human highlight reel in the Swedish Elite league this season. It should be encouraging to Sabres fans to see Olofsson playing so well against men. We haven’t seen many late round picks come through for the Sabres, but we may have one in Olofsson.
