Rasmus Dahlin on Sabres' Olofsson: 'Best shot I've ever seen'

Compliments and superlatives accompany Rasmus Dahlin. The prospect handed out one of his own Tuesday.

Dahlin, expected to be drafted first overall by Buffalo, played in Sweden with Sabres prospect Victor Olofsson.

"He has the best shot I've ever seen," Dahlin said on "The Instigators," the Sabres' simulcast show on MSG and WGR-AM 550. "His shot is amazing. Put him in power play, and he will score so much goals."

The Sabres signed Olofsson last month to a two-year, entry-level contract that pays $767,500 per season. The 22-year-old winger led the Swedish Elite League with 27 goals in 50 games and added 16 assists.

The Sabres selected Olofsson in the seventh round of the 2014 NHL Draft. This year's selection show begins June 22 in Dallas.
