The 24-year-old native of Biloxi, Mississippi was an undrafted free agent who’s quickly worked his way up the organizational ranks in Nashville. Playing in 38 games over the course of the last two seasons, Olivier’s notched three goals and six points. Joining the Preds organization prior to the 2018-19 season, Olivier’s gotten looks at the NHL level because of his heart-and-soul style of play. It certainly wasn’t for his offense, as he’s scored 10 goals only once at the AHL level and was never point-per-game in his junior career.
Olivier put up very good defensive metrics in limited playing time for Nashville this season, and they’re hoping it can continue. It wouldn’t shock anyone to see him make the team out of training camp this time around, and could end up on the team’s fourth line to start the season.
