Olofsson strikes as MODO falls again

Victor Olofsson scored his ninth goal of the year Saturday as MODO was defeated by Orebro HK 5-2. Olofsson's nine goals place second in team-scoring, while his 16 points are second-most among all U20 players in the SHL.

With MODO down 4-1 in the third period, Adrian Kempe (LAK) spun a puck at the net that was quickly scooped up by Olofsson and lifted high over Julius Hudacek's shoulder.

Linus Ullmark earned his 19th start in the MODO net, allowing four goals on 30 shots to fall to 7-11 on the year with a 3.46 GAA and .900 save%.

Gustav Possler played another strong game for MODO, logging a team-high four shots on goal in 18:43 of action. Possler, who nearly scored for the second straight game when an uncontested chance was trickling on the goal line, is right behind Olofsson on the MODO scoring list with eight goals and 14 points through 26 games.

MODO is off until Thursday when they face Djurgardens IF.
