With the seventh overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, the New York Rangers select Lias Andersson from HV71 of the Swedish Hockey League.
Andersson is known as being a strong two-way forward with offensive potential. While not being a very large player at 6’0″ and 200 lbs, he uses his body to his advantage to control puck possession. His skating is improving though it does not impede his overall play. Andersson sees the ice very well and is very good at distributing the puck. He has a shot that isn’t overtly deadly, but very much capable of beating goaltenders. He’s more capable of producing offense by working his way into the dirty areas.
The Swede is a very low-risk pick for the New York Rangers given his style of play. He’s very disciplined and his two-way game will allow him to transition very nicely to NHL play. He projects as a middle six forward that can play in all situations and his likelihood of playing in the NHL is higher than some of the other players eligible. Andersson would be eligible to play in Hartford during the 2017-18 season should he choose to.
- the pack are actually exciting to watch. Plus, the video quality and social media coverage of the AHL make you feel like it's 2008 again.Deadline acquisitions also have a potential to make a difference if they get some young guys who can go down there. I think one of the best things for Skjei's development was going on a long playoff run off his ATO.Totally different team, now. The AHL lifers are what they are but getting away from featuring guys like Tambellini and Gropp to featuring these two has changed everything.
If they can get in and get Holland, Vinny and DeAngelo back they could have a long run.Yes, 1-4-5 in 6 games for Lias. 8-14-22 in 27 for Chytil. Both being plus players with +4 and +3. Impressive considering almost the entire team are minus players.They're on a hot streak.
He's close to a ppg 5 in 6. I could be wrongIf I'm not mistaken, they haven't lost in regulation with Andersson in the line up.

first pro goal in NAI can't find video of the game yet, but holy fuck, Friday nights in Hartford: $1 Hot Dogs and $2 Beers! Cheaper than staying home!The Wolfpack YouTube hilite page looks like a grade 6 media project.Assisted on the OT winner, 4-3. Another 2 assists for Chytll to, 6 points in the last 5 games (2G, 4A).

anywhere to find stream or feed?Is he playing tomorrow? (Wednesday)Time to work on your offensive game. As a norwegian its always nice to have more scandinavians on the team. Hopefully he is ready for NHL next season.Oh good shit.It's confirmed that he's been reassigned to Hartford. Per the AHL transactions page, it happened on Monday.
