Dylan Olsen (born January 3, 1991) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who was drafted 28th overall by the Chicago Blackhawks during the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. Olsen played his junior hockey with the Camrose Kodiaks of the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL), and played college ice hockey at the University of Minnesota Duluth of the NCAA.

Junior career[edit | edit source]

Olsen, who was drafted by the Medicine Hat Tigers of the Western Hockey League (WHL) in the fourth round, 84th overall in the 2006 WHL Bantam Draft, elected to play with the Camrose Kodiaks of the AJHL to keep his NCAA eligibility. Olsen appeared in two games with the Kodiaks in 2006-07, scoring a goal.

In his rookie season of 2007-08, Olsen appeared in 49 games, scoring eight goals and 24 points, as he helped the Kodiaks to have the best record in the league. In the playoffs, Olsen had six points in 16 games, as Camrose won the 2008 AJHL championship. The club then won the 2008 Doyle Cup as Western Canadian champions, defeating the Penticton Vees, before falling to the Humboldt Broncos in the final game of the 2008 Royal Bank Cup.

In 2008-09, Olsen improved his numbers, scoring 10 goals and 29 points in 53 games, and in ten playoff games, he earned seven points before the Kodiaks were eliminated in the AJHL playoffs.

College career[edit | edit source]

Olsen spent the 2009-10 season with the University of Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs, where in 36 games, Olsen had a goal and 11 points, along with 49 penalty minutes.
