“Olofsson is a smart two-way defenseman with good size and overall skills. Skates well and plays the body. Quite unspectacular and prefers to make the easy play. Good positioning.” – (Elite Prospects)

“A poised, big-bodied rearguard .. mobile, all-axis skater powered by excellent feet and a smooth, sturdy stride .. effortless in turns and pivots and lateral movements .. plays a responsible and conservative game – guided by solid awareness and hockey sense .. astute in his positioning – always alert and surveying the landscape .. not blessed with flashy skills, yet is an accurate passer and steady puckmover .. manages the puck well – takes the simple play .. not afraid to initiate contact with his expansive body and wingspan..” – (McKeen’s Hockey)

“Olofsson is a solid, two-way defender with good upside. He moves well both north-south but also east-west, while pivoting and fluid transitions. He’s a graceful skater who looks effortless moving around with deceptive first-step quickness. He possesses impressive decision-making and execution under duress; finds a way to make a play despite having no time or space. He’s very sound positionally and reacts to plays instinctively, a bene t of his good hockey sense. While he makes a good first pass, he is fairly average in terms of puck moving ability. He’s fairly vanilla in terms of offensive creativity despite his poise and mobility.” – Darren Walker (Future Considerations)
