Read: Calle Andersson Is A Puck Moving Defenseman

The Rangers used the 119th pick in the draft to select defenseman Calle Andersson who was ranked much higher than where the Rangers picked him.

Leslie Treff writes at Hockey’s Future that Andersson is a “true puck moving defenseman.”

She adds, “Andersson came to the Rangers’ development camp last month and was very visible at times off the offensive blue line. He has good speed and a very crisp first pass. He will need some time to develop in Europe and then to get used to the NHL-size rink and play more of a positional game, but Andersson has the potential to be a more offensive addition to the Rangers blue line.”

Treff writes that Andersson is expected to play in the Swedish Elite League next season and could be in North America the following season if he does well.
