2021 Fantasy Outlook
Andersson saw a whopping 2:44 worth of power-play time per game last season, but his final numbers (5 goals, 21 points in 56 games) were nearly identical to the previous year (5 goals, 22 points in 70 games) when he averaged just 1:29 of ice time per game with the man advantage. Andersson's greatest attribute at this point is the fact he's locked into a major role on what is an underwhelming Calgary blueline. The Swede offers less than your typical rearguard in terms of both blocks and hits, so it's imperative that Andersson piles up the points in order to be an attractive fantasy option.

Erupts for three points

May 18, 2022
Andersson scored a goal on two shots, added two assists and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 9-6 win over the Oilers in Game 1.
ANALYSIS
Andersson had just two points in seven games versus the Stars, so this was a big bump in offense. The Swedish blueliner hadn't posted a multi-point effort since April 26. He's up to five points, 14 shots on net, nine blocked shots, 19 PIM and a minus-3 rating in eight playoff contests.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
Andersson took a marginal step forward with five goals and 22 points in 70 appearances last season, but he also struggled a bit defensively with a minus-7 rating. The Swede is expected to fill a full-time, top-four role in 2020-21 -- that increase in playing time should correspond with a boost in scoring as well. Andersson also saw 1:29 per game on the power play and should reprise his role on the second power-play unit in 2020-21. For a full-season pace, it's reasonable to expect the 24-year-old to approach 30 points with 140 shots on goal, 50-plus PIM and 90 blocked shots as a solid, well-rounded depth option in standard fantasy formats.
Andersson was pretty solid during his first full NHL season in 2018-19, skating in 79 games while recording 19 points (two goals, 17 helpers) and 115 shots on goal. The Swedish blueliner typically featured on the Flames' third pairing, but occasionally saw time alongside Norris Trophy winner Mark Giordano. The plus-17 rating Andersson posted last season demonstrates that he's already capable of playing well in his own zone, which has made it easy for him to gain the trust of coach Bill Peters. The 22-year-old should only continue to improve in 2019-20, and could approach the 30-point mark while adding approximately 140 shots on goal. If he's able to secure more time on Calgary's top pairing, the 2015 second-round pick could be in line for a breakout season within the next two-to-three years.
Andersson spent most of last season with AHL Stockton, producing nine goals and 30 assists in 56 games. He also suited up for 10 games at the NHL level, but failed to register a point. The 21-year-old figures to spend the bulk of the year in the minors again, but replicating (or better yet, exceeding) his plus-20 rating from the latest minor-league tour could result in more opportunities for the Swede at hockey's highest level. Until then, he won't warrant much fantasy attention.
