Olson developed nicely after a rough start for the USDP U-17 squad last season. Olson is a big goaltender, which is a good, as the new trend in scouting goalies is that bigger is better. Olson uses his big frame to his advantage as he does a good job keeping square to the shooter and cutting off any angle his opponent might have. Does a good job of closing any gaps down low by using his extremely quick reflexes.

Despite playing sparingly at Apple Valley High School in 2009-10, Olson showed the composure of a seasoned veteran while playing for the USDP. Olson’s draft stock has risen drastically thanks to playing sensational in international play.

Why was he picked this late, he was great at WJC-18. Good late round pick I guess.

I at least like that we're developing 3 younger goalies, plus a guy like Muse. Thought we would be looking at different goalies for this draft though.
