    Rangers' Lias Andersson: Minimal impact in 2018-19

    Lias Andersson was held off the scoresheet in Saturday's season finale against Pittsburgh, finishing the season with two goals and four assists in 42 games.The New York Rangers were certainly hoping for more from Andersson, but he at least looked noticeably more comfortable over the season's final few games, posting a plus-2 rating over his final seven contests after recording a minus-15 mark over the first 35. While the 20-year-old Swede will almost certainly make the NHL roster next season, he's unlikely to assume a top-six role barring major growth.

    Rangers' Lias Andersson: Developing slowly

    Lias Andersson tied for the team lead with three shots in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Flyers.The seventh overall selection from the 2017 draft is still trying to find his footing offensively, with just five points in 38 appearances this season. That said, Andersson's at least putting his speed to good use in a penalty killing role, with 2:42 of his 12:15 ice time coming on the penalty kill in this one.

    Rangers' Lias Andersson: Summoned from AHL

    The New York Rangers recalled Lias Andersson from AHL Hartford on Thursday.Though the team hasn't relayed anything in regards to an injury up front, there's a chance that one of the Rangers' forwards will be withheld Thursday in favor of Andersson for either that reason or for the purposes of keeping another forward on hand in the event that a deal is reached to send Mats Zuccarello or Kevin Hayes elsewhere. New York placed Brett Howden (knee) on injured reserve to open the roster spot.

    Rangers' Lias Andersson: Sent to minor-league affiliate

    The New York Rangers assigned Lias Andersson to AHL Hartford on Friday.Andersson has only averaged 8:44 of ice time in New York's last five contests, so the Rangers clearly thought a demotion was in his best interest, as it will allow him get top-six minutes on a nightly basis, albeit at a lower level. The 2017 first-round pick will likely remain in the minors for the foreseeable future, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him back with the big club later this season.

    Rangers' Lias Andersson: Barely sees ice in win

    Lias Andersson put two shots on net in a team-low 6:09 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Anaheim.Andersson's been reduced to a fourth-line role, and no member of his line even reached eight minutes of ice time in this one. The seventh overall pick from the 2017 draft is progressing more slowly than the New York Rangers would like, but it's much too early to write him off in dynasty formats.

    Rangers' Lias Andersson: Finally finds back of net

    Lias Andersson scored his first goal of the season in Monday's 4-2 win over the Senators.The 20-year-old isn't seeing much ice time while skating on the New York Rangers' fourth line -- he played only 8:30 on Monday -- so it's no surprise Andersson's offensive contributions have been limited in 11 games since being called up from AHL Hartford. The seventh overall pick in 2017 has the two-way game to handle a more important assignment, but New York's forward ranks are deep enough that they can bring the youngster along slowly, leaving him as a better fantasy asset in dynasty and keeper leagues than in re-draft formats.

    Rangers' Lias Andersson: Three shots, two penalties in season debut

    Lias Andersson made his season debut in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Canadiens, recording three shots and four PIM in 12:17 of ice time.Andersson looked jittery early, but he was able to settle down as the game went along and produced some quality chances. The Swede's penalty minutes came courtesy of a pair of high-sticking minors, both of which were the result of failing to keep his stick down as he was finishing a body check. Andersson was called up with fellow youngster Brett Howden (upper body) sitting this one out, but Howden is due to return imminently, creating a logjam at the center position consisting of Mika Zibanejad, Kevin Hayes, Filip Chytil, Howden and Andersson.

    Rangers' Lias Andersson: Recalled from minors

    Lias Andersson was called up from AHL Hartford on Monday, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.The seventh-overall pick in the 2017 draft got a cup of coffee with the New York Rangers last season, notching two points in seven games. However, before this season he was sent down to the AHL to get some more experience. The 20-year-old was likely called up in case Brett Howden (upper body) is unable to play Tuesday against the Canadiens. Andersson's time in the NHL will likely be brief, as the AHL appears to be his home for the near future.

    Rangers' Lias Andersson: Sent back to AHL

    Lias Andersson was reassigned to AHL Hartford on Friday.Selected by the New York Rangers with the seventh overall pick in the 2017 draft, Andersson will return to the Wolf Pack, with whom he registered five goals, nine helpers and a plus-8 rating over 25 contests last season. There's plenty to like about Andersson's offensive potential over the long haul, but the Blueshirts are taking a disciplined approach by letting him fully polish his game in the minor league. The Rangers can always call him up, too.

    Rangers' Lias Andersson: Will attend World Championship

    Lias Andersson will head to the 2018 IIHF World Championship with Sweden.Andersson began the year with Frolunda HC in his native Sweden, for whom he notched 14 points in 22 contests. The organization then sent him to AHL Hartford in January, where he tallied five goals and nine helpers, along with 20 PIM. Finally, the 19-year-old closed out the 2017-18 campaign with the New York Rangers for seven games, during which he recorded his first NHL goal. Where Andersson begins the 2018-19 campaign (NHL or AHL) remains uncertain, but he should factor into the upcoming season as an occasional call-up at the very least.
