The Canadian renounces his rights to the young Jacob Olofsson

Every offseason, players leave one organization and then others come. This is also true in terms of hopes. Some players are drafted by the team, while others become free agents or Clever again by the other organizations (repeat).

At midnight tonight, the Canadiens will officially let go of one of their young hopefuls: Jacob Olofsson.

Who is Jacob Olofsson?

When he was drafted 56th overall (2nd round) in 2018, Olofsson was a central player playing in Sweden’s second division. He had just completed a season of 21 points in 43 games.

But it was (relatively) quick afterward.

Olofsson played two seasons in the Swedish top division (SweHL) during which he collected 9 points from 34 games and 9 points from 24 games.

It was then relegated to the Swedish second division (2020-21), a league in which it still plays today. Note that it was in the center. YYonthe wing in recent years, on the last six Y on top six of their teams. Suddenly he was no longer a great prospect.

I had the opportunity to see Olofsson in action at Brossard in 2018, after his selection, and I found him. Right, no more. She was not spared from injuries and has not developed as expected since then. We can understand that the new management wants to cut ties with this one.

Note that Olofsson no longer has any reference to the Canadian on his Instagram page.

Olofsson will become an unrestricted free agent on July 13. I believe that Olofsson will never come to North America and that he will play his entire career In Europe. Probably in Sweden…

Recall that Brett Stapley (2018 seventh-round pick) should become an unrestricted free agent on Aug. 15, The Canadian would have no intention of presenting him with an entry contract by then. Stapley is coming off his fourth season at the University of Denver.

All other prospects in the organization who have not yet signed a contract with the organization will remain the property of the organization in from 2022-23.

Good last day as CH I hope, Jacob!
