Olsen cleared waivers Friday, Jameson Olive of FOX Sports Florida reports.

It's a bit surprising no team was willing to put in a claim for Olsen, who has good size and youth going for him. The Panthers are surely happy to retain the 24-year-old, but with no regular lineup spot available for him with the big club, he figures to head to AHL San Antonio for now.

Olsen was placed on waivers Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

The writing was on the wall for Olsen to be dropped from the roster after Alex Petrovic was recalled from AHL San Antonio following Olsen's poor performance Tuesday against the Red Wings. The 24-year-old Olsen has only eight points in 44 games this season, but his relative youth, ample size, and first-round pedigree might offer enough intrigue for a team to scoop him up off waivers.

Olsen netted his second goal of the season in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals.

The 24-year-old had just one point in his last 15 contests and now has just seven points through 36 games. At this point, there isn't much there from a fantasy perspective for the blueliner.

Olsen was a healthy scratch from Monday's game against the Wild, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

Olsen was scratched from the lineup minutes before Monday's game began, despite the fact that he's recorded four assists on the season. The Panthers face the Hurricanes on Wednesday and it remains to be seen whether or not Olsen will continue to sit on the bench or reenter the lineup.

Olsen picked up his fourth assist of the season and had a plus-3 rating in Sunday's 6-2 win over Anaheim.

The assist was Olsen's first point in nine games and his first plus rating game in his last eight. The Calgary native has been a very steady defenseman this season for Florida playing alongside Erik Gudbranson. Olsen has been seeing second unit power play time, playing 1:01 minutes on average per game this season. So don't expect big things out of him this season offensively.

Olsen assisted on Erik Gudbranson's first-period goal in Thursday's loss to the Lightning.

Olsen and Gudbranson formed the Panthers' third pairing in the season opener, with both blueliners logging less than 15 minutes of ice time. The 23-year-old Olsen has shown some promise as an offensive threat during his brief time with the Panthers, so he could be someone worth monitoring in deeper formats.
