Playing CareerEdit

Olivier was selected in the 3rd round (44th overall) in the 2007 QMJHL Entry Draft by the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.

In Olivier's first season with Cape Breton, he took the league by storm, recording four shutouts and winning the RDS Cup as the league's top rookie.

He played for Team Quebec in the 2008 ADT Canada-Russia Challenge and was named Team Quebec’s Player of the Game in their 5-3 win over Team Russia in Game One.

Olivier was ranked as the second-best North American goaltender available by the NHL Central Scouting Services going into the 2009 NHL Entry Draft in Montreal.

On June 27, 2009, he was selected by the Edmonton Oilers in the fifth round (133rd overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Olivier played for Team Canada at the 2011 World Junior Hockey Championships along with Mark Visentin and started the opening game of the tournament against Russia.

After three seasons with Cape Breton, Olivier was traded to the Acadie-Bathurst Titan in the QMJHL for the 2010-11 season, but he struggled during the playoffs. In 2012, his rights were traded to the Baie-Comeau Drakkar.

On March 30, 2011, he signed a three-year entry level contract with the Edmonton Oilers.

On November 8, 2013, Olivier was traded to the Calgary Flames along with Ladislav Smid in exchange for Roman Horak and Laurent Brossoit.
