Olson returned to follow final week however didn’t play in UND’s two-recreation collection towards Western Michigan.
The 6-foot-2, 200-pound winger from Duluth, who had two assists in his first seven video games this season, provides just a little little bit of physicality and a few underrated talent to UND’s lineup.
He’s one in every of 4 proper-handed shot forwards on the staff and was getting used on the facility play earlier than he sustained his damage.
Olson ended final season with 9 factors and three recreation-profitable objectives within the final seven video games. He was the staff’s main scorer within the month of March.
UND will proceed to be with out ahead Dixon Bowen, who injured his foot blocking a shot towards the College of Denver.
Bowen has missed the final 5 video games, and UND’s penalty kill has sorely missed him.
In UND’s thirteen video games with Bowen, the Preventing Hawks killed ninety two.three % of opponent energy performs, rating third nationally. Within the 5 video games with out Bowen, UND’s penalty kill is at seventy six %, rating forty eighth within the nation in that timespan.
Sophomore ahead Ludvig Hoff and sophomore defenseman Andrew Peski — who each left final Friday’s recreation towards Western Michigan with accidents — are training once more. Each are questionable for the weekend collection towards St. Cloud State.
