Is Victor Olofsson still hurt?

I've been wondering since he came back, and after last night, i think it's pretty obvious he is.

The number of times he declined to take his one-timer on the PP was a little frightening.

I admire him fighting through it, and I guess the team thinks he's not going to aggravate it, but not being able to shoot sure puts a hole in his game, and makes me wonder if he should remain on the PP.

You'd think they'd be a little hesitant to let a player play through injury, after was happened last year. But I guess it does ultimately come down to a player's decision, for pain tolerance.

That’s the question. But he did get the tying goal last night. Until he didn’t 

On a fluke bounce off a defenseman's leg.  Not exactly his typical PP snipe.

He's definitely still affected by the injury.  But in the last 2-3 games he has actually started shooting rather than always passing.  Which hopefully is a sign he's getting close to 100%.
