In the regular season, Olofsson notched one goal and five assists with the Coachella Valley Firebirds. Olofsson served as one of the team’s alternate captains and played in all 26 postseason games with the Firebirds to help reach the Calder Cup Finals.
Olofsson also earned two NHL recalls during the 2022-23 season, appearing in three games in total for the Kraken.
This comes just a few days after Jesper Froden signed a two-year deal with the ZSC Lions across the pond in the Swiss NL.
