Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - Victor Olofsson has been named the NHL's Rookie of the Month for October.

Olofsson scored all six goals he had in the month in his first seven games. All six goals were also scored on the power play. He does not have a 5-on-5 goal in his brief NHL career.

Olofsson added four assists to give him 10 points on the month. Toronto's Ilya Mikheyev had four goals and six assists on the month, while Colorado defenseman Cale Makar had a goal and nine assists.

Washington goalie Ilya Samsonov was 4-1-0 with a 2.46 goals-against average and .913 save percentage. Samsonov was the man the Sabres would've drafted in 2015 had they not traded their first round pick to Ottawa for Robin Lehner.

The Sabres are in Washington tonight. Join Schopp and the Bulldog for the pre-game show starting at 6:00 when they'll be joined by Ralph Krueger, Marcus Johansson and Brandon Montour.
