The American Hockey League announced today that Rochester Americans forward Victor Olofsson has been named the CCM/AHL Player of the Month for October.
Olofsson tallied five goals and 10 assists for a league-leading 15 points in 10 games during October.
Olofsson made his AHL debut on Oct. 5 and earned an assist while taking a team-high five shots on goal in a 6-2 loss to Charlotte. He then put together a seven-game scoring streak, beginning with a three-point effort in a 6-3 win over Syracuse on Oct. 10. Olofsson had back-to-back two-point games at Bridgeport on Oct. 13 and 14, and then notched two goals and two assists in a 6-1 win at Utica on Oct. 17. Olofsson recorded an assist and a shootout goal in a 5-4 win over Toronto on Oct. 19 before notching single assists on Oct. 20 at Belleville and Oct. 26 vs. Utica.
In his first season of play in North America, the 23-year-old Olofsson leads all AHL skaters in scoring through the month of October and is one off the league lead with his 10 assists. In addition, nine of his points have come on the power play, helping the Amerks to a 29.5 percent efficiency through 10 games. Olofsson was a seventh-round selection by the Buffalo Sabres in the 2014 NHL Draft and played 200 games in the Swedish Hockey League, where he scored a league-best 27 goals for Frolunda in 2017-18.
