Dylan D. Olsen (born January 3, 1991 in Salt Lake City, Utah) is an American-born Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman. He currently plays for the Florida Panthers of the NHL.

He was drafted with the 28th overall pick by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He began his hockey career when he was drafted by the Medicine Hat Tigers in the 2006 WHL Bantam Draft. He instead played for the Camrose Kodiaks of the AJHL for three seasons before he left to play college hockey. He played college hockey at the University of Minnesota Duluth with the Bulldogs.

After he finished his college hockey career, he played for the Chicago Blackhawks' AHL farm team, the Rockford IceHogs for 2 seasons. On November 14, 2013, the Blackhawks traded Olsen along with Jimmy Hayes to the Florida Panthers for Kris Versteeg and Philippe Lefebvre.[1]

His father was also an ice hockey player that played one game in the NHL with the Calgary Flames in the 1991-92 NHL season.
