Buffalo Sabres Rumors: 2 Teams Linked to Victor Olofsson

The Buffalo Sabres are expected to entertain offers for Victor Olofsson this summer due to his placement on their depth chart dropping this season. The 27-year-old is already generating some interest, as the Calgary Flames and Columbus Blue Jackets are two teams currently linked to him.

The Flames being linked to Olofsson is not surprising. After all, they had serious scoring trouble this season, and Olofsson would have the potential to help change that in 2023-24. In 75 games this season, he had 28 goals, so he clearly can put the puck in the net. As a result, he would be a good addition to their middle six and power play if acquired. 

The Columbus Blue Jackets are looking to turn things around next season, and they are expected to have a busy summer because of it. They are looking to strengthen their second line specifically, and Olofsson would be a good player for them to add because of it. He would provide them with another solid scorer as they look to prove that this horrendous season was just a fluke.
