Buffalo Sabres rookie Victor Olofsson has been one of the breakout stars from across the NHL to start this season.

Scoring five goals this year, seven in his career, all of Olofsson’s goals have one thing in common: they’ve all been on the power play.

Olofsson’s seven tallies on the man advantage to start his career set an NHL record, becoming the first player ever to do so, after giving the Sabres a 1-0 lead against the Dallas Stars on Monday.

‘Goalofsson,’ as he’s referred to by the people of Western New York, is happy to have the record, although he would love to put home his first-ever even-strength goal.

Olofsson’s hot start has helped lead the Sabres to an impressive 5-0-1 record to begin the 2019-20 campaign.
