Olofsson is a small but swift forward who has an intriguing package of offensive skill. He is fairly raw in terms of his overall game and is at a disadvantage at times defensively due to his lack of size and bulk.
Olofsson showed promise in his first SHL season in 2014-15 on a MODO squad that wasn't very strong. Largely overlooked due to his lack of size, he has some significant offensive tools. Long-range he will constantly be challenged to prove he can be an effective two-way forward given his lack of stature. His potential to this point seems to be that of a Nathan Gerbe-type forward who can contribute and overcome his lack of physical size. At the same time Olofsson may peak as a minor league scorer or spend his entire career in Europe.
