|Detroit Red Wings|

March 2013 – There is no looking back for Anderson and the Red Wings at this point. His offensive potential is yet to show up, but he is proving very capable as a third line center creating scoring chances and being very responsible on the ice. His ice time is growing and he should be watched, if he gains more muscle and strength, he could become a similar player to Johan Franzen from the swing position. Jason Banks
December 2012 – Andersson has continued to be a strong performer this season playing with more of an edge. For those in leagues that count PIMs, Andersson has jumped from the low 30s to 49 in only 28 games and is on pace for around 130 on the season. His production has not suffered as a result and he should finish with another season in the 50 point region. He is close to seeing extended time in Detroit as a utility forward. Jason Banks
May, 2011 – Andersson possesses good NHL size and plays an aggressive style of game. He is considered an extremely consistent performer and has a very solid all-around game – prototypical to Red Wings’ players. Andersson sounds like a lock to be the type of player Detroit covets, but on the third or fourth line.
Fantasy Outlook: C-
Andersson needs to improve his offense if he is to make an impact fantasy-wise, but he does appear to be destined for the NHL in some capacity.
