This has just been confirmed by David Pagnotta for Buffalo Sabres forward Victor Olofsson.

The goal scorer will officially become available next July 1st, and he will become an unrestricted free agent (UFA).
Olofsson thus becomes an interesting option for Kent Hughes, as he was very productive before losing ice time to Tage Thompson, Alex Tuch, JJ Peterka, and company.
Olofsson, 28, is a winger who has accumulated 42 points in 54 games, 32 points in 56 games, 50 points in 72 games, and 40 points in 75 games before his 2024 campaign with 15 points in 51 games.
He has scored 90 goals in 314 career NHL games.

Victor Olofsson, a good plan B or C at a discount for Kent Hughes on the NHL free agent market

He is a name to keep in mind if Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton want to add reinforcement for the power play, if they want to sign an impact player without spending too much long-term.
A short-term contract of 2 to 3 million dollars could be interesting with Olofsson.
A case to follow this summer, but he will be officially available
«Victor Olofsson will hit the free agent market and will leave the Buffalo Sabres this summer. He started his NHL career with them in 2018-2019 and he is ready for his next chapter.» - David Pagnotta

Olofsson has been and can certainly be a 30-goal scorer again in the National Hockey League.
