Ryan Olsen and the Kelowna Rockets play the Lethbridge Hurricanes tonight on Sportsnet!

Olsen, a Winnipeg Jets prospect, was acquired by the Rockets this summer in the trade that sent Shane McColgan to the Saskatoon Blades. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder brought size and grit to his new team while setting a new career mark with 16 goals so far this season.

"The size that he added up the middle of the ice for us was important," Huska said. "We felt it was important to get bigger down the middle, but so far Ryan's been good for us at both ends of the ice. He's been physical for us, he's given us the size we're looking for, but he also chips in with a lot of goals early on in the year and that's something we're hoping will continue."
