March 2013 – Andersen left the Admirals at the end of January to join the Danish National team for Olympic Games qualifying, it was a blessing in disguise as Jeff Deslauriers was demoted also and the crease was becoming crowded. The experience was strong for Andersen as he allowed only a pair of goals in two contests and had a .960 SV%. Since his return to the AHL, he has rode a wave of confidence with four wins in five starts and has been very stingy with a 1.77 GAA and .932 SV% in six appearances since his return. Unfortunately, the outlook in Anaheim is very questionable with fellow top prospects Igor Bobkov, John Gibson around at the moment and the veteran Deslauriers in the picture, but the approaching deadline could change the location of someone or even himself.

January, 2013 – Andersen plays a big and raw game. He uses his size to fill the net quite well, but still needs to work on some of his mechanics. As with larger goalies, speed can be an issue, but having done so well in Frolunda, and more recently, for the Norfolk Admirals (AHL), he is refining his game to the North American style fairly well.
Fantasy Outlook: C+
Has shown an excellent adjustment to the North American game and comes with a wealth of maturity, he is currently at a level where he can be an NHL backup today.
Here’s a goal by the great big goalie:
