This was one of the final signing we were waiting for in terms of arbitration-eliglbe players. Sam Reinhart and Linus Ullmark were recently signed, but now the Sabres get Olofsson to a 2-year deal worth about $3M each year.
Welcome back, @vickeo! 🔥

Similar to the other recent deals, this one is short-term, which is fine. Olofsson figures to fit in the top six again with power play time as well.
The rookie had 42 points (20 goals, 22 assists) in 54 games last season. He was in the conversation for the Calder Trophy until he had gotten injured.
