    Rangers Draft [D] Calle Andersson With 4th Round (119th) Pick



    Name: Calle Anderson
    Position: Defenseman
    Shoots: Right
    Current Team: Färjestad bk Karlstad (SEL) (Currently on loan to the Malmö Redhawks of the Allsvenskan League)

    Elite Prospect's Profile: http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=30181
    An all-around two-way defenseman. Andersson contributes both offensively and defensively. Skates well for a big guy and has impressive decision making. Passing game is strong and so is his positioning. Not overly flashy, but plays with authority and smarts.

    He just signed that Swiss contract a few days ago and it had an out to come here if he signed with us before June 15th so I'm not so sure it's a lock that he's staying in Europe. He has never played in the Swiss league before, was in a Swedish program that was struggling and had been relegated to a lower division, so he wanted out. The ever so unreliable Leslie Treff was reporting earlier this month that he was coming to play in Hartford next season, but I never trust her anyway.

    Calle Andersson, who was drafted by the New York Rangers 119th overall in 2012, has signed a one-year contract with EV Zug, which includes an NHL out-clause. This clause will be valid until June 15, according to Marcel Kuchta (Aargauer Zeitung)..

    Yeah that's probably right. It will be tough to know how far off he is until he comes to play in a real league.

    He will be here for development camp. Not sure about training camp, guess it depends how everything goes before then.

    Thought he looked pretty darn decent back in the 2012 camp
    http://rangers.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=81132

    Tall player (6'2"), remember he made an impression on me in the short time watching those scrimmage videos back then, seemed poised and calm. (Although I might have seen what I wanted to see.) Just a hand injury kept him out of camp last year. But it was a kinda camp of shrimps so I guess he looked much larger in comparison with some of the diminutive forwards we had.

    Like Tambellini, injury issues set back Andersson; for him it was a wrist problem dating back to last season. However, Andersson has gotten into a routine much quicker. Playing in the second division in Sweden, which, like Buchnevich, is largely against grown, matured players, Andersson has earned 10 points in 28 games. Those are very acceptable numbers for a 19-year-old, and he's been responsible enough defensively. Gordie Clark said that the team really likes his poise and vision with the puck on his stick, but that he has to work on being a bit less timid. The Swedish leagues, though certainly legitimate and competitive, don't match up to the NHL in terms of the physical nature. Andersson is going to have to work on that and might need to come over to North America to do so. His rights expire at the end of the season so the scouting staff will soon have a decision to make on whether to sign him, but if he continues on this path then I find it difficult to imagine he is not signed. Andersson is the one guy in the system who has any sort of potential as a puck moving defenseman and powerplay quarterback, and for those reasons he is an important prospect.

    Mason Raymond (ANA) and Calle Andersson (NYR) on unconditional waivers, presumably for mutually agreed termination of contract.

    Never really became the puck mover that some hoped he'd be. Not surprising that he's going. He wasn't going to get time with more deserving players ahead of him.

    I'm surprised. He is only 22. Why is Summers still here?

    Veteran presence. There's always been the preference to have a journeyman there. Until McIlrath was sent down the player with the most experience in defense was Hughes who's in his 4th professional season.

    Anderson also wasn't playing above anyone that warranted time. The commodity he offered, two way play and puck movement, is already provided by other players who are better.

    Me too. He's an 83 in my NHL 16 franchise, so obviously Gorton doesn't know what he's doing lol

    Well poop!

    I liked what I saw of Anderson a few years ago and also what I had read, but I guess things change, or don't progress quick enough. It's not like we have a slew of blue chip defensive prospects.
