Scouting Reports:
“Well-rounded center that excels particularly as a goal scorer, Andersson has good two-way acumen with strong hockey smarts, battles hard for loose pucks and plays bigger than his frame suggests; has a good goal scorers touch and isn’t afraid to drive the net to bury rebounds.” – Brandon Holmes, Riding Pine Hockey

“A smart, mature, two-way center…good decision-making, leadership qualities and advanced understanding of the game…a true three-zone player…defensively responsible…will drop to block shots or get his body in passing lanes…dangerous forechecker who reads the defense and uses an active stick to disrupt…covers up the ice for his teammates on the backcheck and always gives an honest effort…doesn’t commit a lot of mistakes and plays a very calm game while in puck possession…has solid offensive instincts…protects the puck very well and uses all of his frame to hold opponents off the puck…possesses a nice, quick shot release…not a flashy puckhandler, but can carry it up ice and distributes it well…goes to the net and plays in traffic…has solid vision and the ability to set up his linemates…has good balance and generates healthy amounts of speed…a potential two-way guy in the Zetterberg mold. (November 2016)” – Future Considerations
