9/11 Recap: Olofsson scores as MODO opens with loss

Victor Olofsson scored his first career SHL goal Thursday as MODO opened the 2014-15 season with a 3-1 loss to Örebro HK . Minutes before connecting for his power play marker, Olofsson was stopped on a penalty shot attempt after being interfered with on a partial breakaway. Olofsson, who was listed as the 13th forward, logged 9:16 of work in the opening day loss.

Reigning Honken Trophy winner Linus Ullmark started in goal for MODO, making 17 saves in the losing effort. Skating on MODO's top offensive unit, Gustav Possler (-1) recorded three shots on goal through 20:49 of action his first action since last fall.

MODO will shoot for their first win Saturday when they visit Skelleftea AIK.

Elsewhere in the SHL, Jonas Johansson did not dress (illness) as Brynäs IF kicked off the campaign with 4-0 loss to Frölunda HC. Johansson will likely remain on the shelf when Brynäs gets back at it on Saturday against Leksands IF.
