Predators' Mathieu Olivier: Sent back to minors

Olivier will be reassigned to AHL Milwaukee on Tuesday, Patrick Willis of AHL.com reports. Olivier saw action in just 10 games during the regular season in which he garnered one assist, five shots and 23 hits while averaging 10:06 of ice time. Given his limited offensive upside, the 25-year-old winger will be hard-pressed to earn significant opportunities next year.

Predators' Mathieu Olivier: Called up Tuesday

Olivier was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on Tuesday. Olivier has gotten into eight games at the top level this season, posting a single point. He hasn't been very productive in the AHL, either, with just five goals and six assists in 46 contests, so Olivier doesn't figure to offer much fantasy help anytime soon.

Predators' Mathieu Olivier: Joins big club

Olivier was recalled from the minors Tuesday, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports. With Filip Forsberg (upper body) and Nick Cousins (undisclosed) out of action, Olivier should have the inside track to a spot in the lineup over fellow call-up Michael McCarron, though a back-to-back versus Dallas and St. Louis on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively, could see both players on the ice. The 24-year-old Olivier is pointless through five minor-league games with the Admirals this season.

Predators' Mathieu Olivier: Dealing with lower-body injury

Olivier's injury has been clarified as a lower-body problem, per the team's announcement Tuesday. The fact that Olivier wasn't designated for long-term injured reserve should be an indication he is facing days rather than weeks until a return. Once cleared to play, the 24-year-old winger should be in the mix for a lineup spot, likely in the bottom six, which should set him up to top his 2020-21 numbers (three goals and two assists in 30 games).
