2019 Fantasy Outlook
Andersson was billed as NHL-ready when he was selected seventh overall in the 2017 draft, but the Swedish center has had trouble making an impact at the top level. He still has room for improvement since he'll just be turning 21 in October, but Andersson is locked into a bottom-six role at best after recording only six points in 42 appearances last season. The Rangers have a glut of developing center prospects in Filip Chytil, Brett Howden and Andersson; Andersson has looked the least promising of those three first-rounders up to this point despite being the highest touted on draft day.

The Rangers demoted Andersson to AHL Hartford on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
The 21-year-old hasn't gotten off to the start he wanted to this point, grabbing just one assist while playing an average of 9:33 in 17 games this year. He'll get a chance to earn back some confindence in the minors, as he racked up 20 points in 36 AHL games last year. Andersson was replaced by Tim Gettinger on the active roster.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
After accruing two points in seven NHL appearances last year, the seventh overall selection in the 2017 draft should be ready to make the full-time jump to hockey's highest level this season. Andersson's scoring numbers probably won't blow you away, but he plays a refined two-way game and should get plenty of opportunities in a lineup full of youngsters. While he's more valuable in keeper and dynasty formats at this point, Andersson shouldn't be ignored in redraft formats, especially if he wins a top-six role in camp.
The Rangers picked up the No. 7 overall pick in the 2017 draft in the deal that sent Derek Stepan and Antti Raanta to Arizona, and they proceeded to use it on Andersson, a polished two-way forward out of Sweden -- a bit of an odd, low-upside choice, considering the many options available to them. Andersson managed only 19 points in 42 games for HV71 Jonkoping of the Swedish Hockey League last season, but he was also 17 years old at the outset of the campaign -- and he went plus-21, the fifth-best mark on the club. he'll get a chance to make the Rangers out of camp, but with nothing more than a bottom-six role available, it’s more likely that he gets a nine-game NHL trial and then bides the rest of the season overseas or in the AHL.
