Lias Andersson's Player Profile

Jeff Marek of Sportsnet - Mar. 8th: "Had a production dip after the WJC, but has been on fire of late putting up big points in the SHL."

ISS Hockey - Feb. 24th: "Work ethic and consistency elevates him above peers. Does it all. Natural leader."

Mike Morreale NHL.com - Jan. 20th: "An excellent skater with speed and good first-step quickness. He's always on the move and can create scoring chances with his mobility, good hands and grit. His father, Niklas Andersson, played 165 NHL games and now is an amateur scout in Europe for the Los Angeles Kings."

Future Considerations: "A smart, mature, two-way center…good decision-making, leadership qualities and advanced understanding of the game…a true three-zone player…defensively responsible…will drop to block shots or find the open option and get his body in passing lanes…dangerous forechecker who reads the defense and uses an active stick to disrupt…covers up the ice for his teammates on the backcheck and always gives an honest effort…doesn’t commit a lot of mistakes and plays a very calm game while in puck possession"

Dennis Schellenberg Hockey Prospectus - Nov. 9th: "Andersson is a competitive two-way forward who excels at both ends of the ice due to his very high hockey smarts. He understands the game mentally on a high level and makes smart decisions."
