Andersen (lower body) was on the ice for a portion of Monday's practice, though coach Rod Brind'Amour wouldn't provide more of an update, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports. At this point, Andersen should be considered status quo heading into Game 4 against the Rangers on Tuesday, so fantasy players should continue to expect him to remain sidelined indefinitely until the team provides a clearer update. As long as Antti Raanta continues to get his team through, the Canes are unlikely to rush Andersen back into the nets.
Andersen (lower body) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports. Although Andersen is clearly making progress in his recovery, he'll need to log at least one full practice before potentially making his postseason debut. Antti Raanta has been excellent for the Hurricanes in Andersen's absence, so there's no reason for Carolina to rush him back before he's fully healthy.
Andersen (lower body) will not play Tuesday against the Bruins, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports. There's no real update on Andersen's status at this point. Per head coach Rod Brind'Amour, he still hasn't gotten back on the ice, and the team won't have an update until he does. Tuesday will be his 11th straight absence.
Andersen won't be available Sunday for Game of the Hurricanes' first-round series against the Bruins due to a lower-body injury, CardiacCane.com reports. Antti Raanta's starting with Pyotr Kochetkov working in a backup role. The Hurricanes lead the series 2-1 and have thus far outplayed Boston without needing Andersen, who has been skating on his own but remains without a concrete return timeline.
Andersen (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Bruins, CardiacCane.com reports. The Hurricanes likely don't feel the need to rush Andersen back, as Antti Raanta was fantastic in Monday's Game 1 versus Boston, stopping 35 of 36 shots en route to a 5-1 victory. Barring a poor performance, Raanta will almost certainly continue to operate as Carolina's workhorse in goal until Andersen is ready to return.
