Olofsson (lower body) joined the team during its recent road trip and performed off-ice workouts without a walking boot, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.
This is a positive step in recovery for Olofsson, who was originally given a 5-to-6-week timetable for a return when he was injured Jan. 3. The 24-year-old's absence has been a tough loss for the Sabres, especially considering he's been enjoying a career-best season with 35 points in 43 games. Luckily for Olofsson, the Sabres don't resume game action until Jan. 28, and he appears still on track for a mid-February return to the lineup, if not a little sooner. Yesterday 12:16 pm (EST)
- Olofsson will miss 5-6 weeks due to an upper-body injury suffered against Edmonton on Thursday.
- Olofsson left Thursday's game and didn't return after suffering a non-contact injury, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
- Olofsson posted two assists and five shots on goal in a 5-3 loss to the Maple Leafs on Tuesday. All Victor Olofsson News
