Olsen (upper-body) will probably join the team in New Jersey.
The Panthers are set to take on the Devils on Saturday, so Olsen will not play tomorrow but could be in the lineup on Saturday. Thursday will be the third consecutive game that Olsen has missed with an upper-body injury he suffered last Tuesday.
The Panthers have recalled Dylan Olsen from San Antonio (AHL).
Olsen was acquired from the Chicago Blackhawks in the Kris Versteeg trade. He had eight assists in 16 games with Chicago's AHL affiliate (Rockford), since coming to San Antonio he has one goal and a minus-1 rating in three games.
The Florida Panthers traded Kris Versteeg and Philippe Lefebvre to Chicago for Jimmy Hayes and defenceman Dylan Olsen on Thursday night.
Olsen was the Blackhawks' first round pick (28th) in 2009. He is a six-foot-three, 210 lbs. stay-at-home D-man. Olsen played 28 games with Chicago in 2011-12, posting just one assist. He has since been with the Rockford IceHogs (AHL) - Eight assists in 16 games this season.
Forwards Jimmy Hayes, Marcus Kruger, Peter LeBlanc and Brandon Pirri and defenseman Dylan Olsen are headed to Rockford. That leaves 16 forwards, eight defensemen, and three goaltenders on the Hawks' roster.
