The Rangers signed Andersson to his entry-level deal in June 2014.

Andersson was picked 119th by the Rangers in 2012.

In his draft year he was ranked, 39th by Future Considerations and they said, “A smart, two-way defenseman who makes consistently good decisions. His skating has improved this year to a strength as he is very mobile and has quick with agile feet. He plays the game cool and calm, both with and without the puck on his stick. He reads the play extremely well and has great anticipation. He knows his positioning and where to be to stifle an attack as well as what to do to support an offensive play.”
