The Montreal Canadiens have announced the signing of defenseman Gustav Olofsson to a new contract. It's a one-year, two-way contract for next season worth $750,000 in the NHL and $250,000 in the AHL, with a $350,000 guaranteed salary.

Olofsson was acquired by the Habs from Minnesota in October of 2018 for William Bitten. The 6'3'' and 196 lbs blueliner played 59 games with the Laval Rocket in 2019-20, recording 17 points (1 goal, 16 assists) and serving 18 penalty minutes. Olofsson also played three games with the Canadiens this season.

Selected in the second round by the Wild (46th overall) in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Olofsson helped Sweden earn a silver medal at the 2014 World Junior Championship.
