Flames' Rasmus Andersson: Point streak at three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andersson scored an empty-net goal on four shots in Monday's 5-2 win over the Canucks.

Andersson didn't have any luck with a whopping 8:10 of power-play time Monday, as he hit a post with a blistering shot and had other close calls. However, that lucked flipped when he sealed the win with a long-range empty-netter in the third period, a shot that may have been a simple clearing attempt and beat a desperate Canucks pursuer by inches. The Swede has gotten on the scoresheet in all three games so far, with a goal and two helpers. The 24-year-old has added six blocked shots, and he seems to be adjusting to a larger role quite well in all facets of the game.

Flames' Rasmus Andersson: Collects power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andersson notched a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Canucks.

Andersson is making himself at home on the top power-play unit -- he fed Johnny Gaudreau for a shot attempt that generated a rebound for Matthew Tkachuk to tuck home in the third period. With an assist in each of the first two games this year, Andersson's getting things done on the scoresheet. He also has five blocked shots and three shots on net so far.

Flames' Rasmus Andersson: Provides helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andersson notched an assist and a team-high four blocked shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Jets.

In addition to his strong shot-blocking, Andersson skated 23:59 in the contest, the most among all Flames skaters. The Swedish blueliner has finally ascended to a top-pairing role alongside Mark Giordano, which will put Andersson in line for more offensive opportunities at even strength. The 24-year-old Andersson is also serving on the top power-play unit -- fantasy managers in deeper formats may want to add him to their rosters just in case he has a breakout year ahead of him.

Flames' Rasmus Andersson: Improves in second season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andersson registered five goals, 22 points and a minus-7 rating in 70 regular-season games this season.

Andersson produced three more points despite playing nine fewer games than he did in his rookie year. The Swede added 124 shots on net and 83 blocked shots. Andersson is expected to take on a larger role in 2020-21 -- he's one of three defensemen on the roster signed for the upcoming campaign. With turnover on the blue line, the 23-year-old will likely see full-time usage in the top four. He's being groomed as Mark Giordano's replacement as the top defenseman of the future -- as such, look for Andersson to skate more than 20 minutes per game and finish on pace for 30 to 40 points in an 82-game season next year.

Flames' Rasmus Andersson: Buries goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andersson scored a goal and added four hits in Thursday's 7-3 loss to the Stars in Game 6.

Andersson's third goal of the playoffs gave the Flames a 3-0 lead, but it was all downhill from there. The Stars would score seven unanswered goals to run away with the win and the series. The 23-year-old blueliner ended his playoff run with three goals, two assists and a plus-4 rating in 10 games. Andersson will likely be expected to take on a larger role in 2020-21.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flames' Rasmus Andersson: Records assist Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andersson had an assist in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Wild.

Andersson got the puck up to Sean Monahan, who found Johnny Gaudreau for the second-period tally. The Swedish blueliner is up to 13 points and 86 shots on goal in 46 games this season. He signed a six-year contract extension Wednesday -- the 23-year-old figures to be a fixture on the Flames' blue line for a long time. While his offense isn't up to standard for widespread fantasy appeal, he should benefit in that regard by an eventual permanent move into the top-four on defense.

Flames' Rasmus Andersson: Inks six-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Andersson signed a six-year contract extension worth $4.55 million AAV on Wednesday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Andersson has committed to the Flames through the 2025-26 season, which is the longest any Flames blueliner is locked down for. The 23-year-old has posted 12 points through 45 games, but his defensive contributions are more impressive, as he's recorded a 52.9 Corsi For percentage so far.
