Frederik Andersen's five-year deal with Toronto is worth $25 million.

That gives his contract an annual average value of $5 million. Andersen will be Toronto's number one goalie in 2016-17 with Jonathan Bernier likely entering the year as the backup.
Jun 20 - 6:37 PM

Frederik Andersen has signed a five-year contract with the Maple Leafs.

The deal was announced shortly after Toronto acquired Andersen from Anaheim in exchange for the 30th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Draft and a second-round pick in 2017.
Jun 20 - 5:47 PM

Frederik Andersen has been traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for the 30th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Draft and a second-round pick in 2017.

Andersen posted a 22-9-7 record with a 2.30 goals-against average and a .919 save-percentage in 43 games with the Anaheim Ducks in 2015-16. He is currently a restricted free agent who the Leafs will have to sign first, but after that happens he will become the team's number one goalie going into 2016-17.
Jun 20 - 5:09 PM

Don't be surprised if the Ducks trade restricted free agent Frederik Andersen.

The move may happen this off-season or next, but the Ducks have two outstanding goalies in Andersen and John Gibson, and with expansion likely for the 2017-18 with Las Vegas, one has to go. The Ducks could go with both once again this season but with expansion rules likely to be that each team can protect only one netminder, it makes sense to trade one of them and get something in return, rather than just losing the goalie. Andersen should get a hefty raise from his $1.3 million salary of last season. He shared the cage with Gibson this season, appearing in 43 games with a 22-9-4 mark to go with a 2.30 GAA and a .919 save percentage. He played the majority of time in the playoffs as he was in net for the last five games of the opening round, going 3-2 with a 1.41 GAA and a .947 save percentage.

Frederik Andersen can become a restricted free agent July 1.

It's unclear if the Ducks will keep Andersen in the fold with John Gibson ready to be a full-time starter. "Tough to say right now," Andersen said. "I think when the time comes some decisions will be made. I like playing here and all the guys love having me in the net. I like it here, so obviously, I would love to play here." Andersen's previous contract had an annual average value of just $1.15 million.
May 2 - 3:51 PM

Frederik Andersen suffered a head injury in late March, and the source was revealed on Saturday.

Andersen said he was struck in the head prior to March 30th's match with Calgary, in which he was pulled just 11:32 into the game after allowed three goals on five shots. He wouldn't play again until April 10th, but would go on to backstop Anaheim's final five postseason games.
Apr 30 - 5:09 PM

Frederik Andersen allowed two goals on 20 shots in a 2-1 Game 7 loss to Anaheim on Tuesday.

Andersen really had little chance on either goal but had to be nearly perfect on this night with the way Pekka Rinne was playing on the other side of the rink. Collin Wilson beat him in tight on a beauty forehand-to-backhand deke and then Paul Gaustad tipped in a high Shea Weber shot. It was a fourth straight year the Ducks lost in Game 7 at home. Andersen did his part in this series, going 3-2 with an outstanding 1.41 GAA and .947 save percentage and a shutout.
Apr 28 - 2:11 AM

Frederik Andersen will be between the pipes when the Anaheim Ducks host the Nashville Predators in Game 7 of the Western Conference quarterfinals.

Anderson is 3-1 heading into Game 7 after taking over the Ducks crease for Game 3. He's sporting a sparkling 1.26 goals-against average and a .955 save percentage.
Apr 27 - 9:39 PM

Frederik Andersen may not be a household name, but perhaps he ought to be.

The Ducks' likely netminder in Wednesday's Game 7 doesn't seem phased by the added pressures of playoff hockey. In 125 career regular season games Andersen boasts a .918 save percentage, and a .925 SV% at even strength, which pairs nicely with his 2.30 GAA. Though he's seen a dip in those numbers in the through 27 career playoff games, they're only slight with a .916 save percentage and a 2.35 GAA. Andersen hasn't seen more than two pucks beat him in any of his four playoff games thus far.
Apr 26 - 7:22 PM

Anaheim Ducks goalie Frederik Andersen steered aside 23 of the 25 shots he faced from the Predators in a 3-1 loss in Nashville Monday night.

Andersen continued his solid play in the playoffs but the Preds were able to tie the first-round series and extend it to a seventh and deciding game. It will be played in Anaheim Wednesday. Anderson, who entered Monday with a 1.00 goals-against average and a .966 save percentage in the post-season, is now 3-1 with a GAA of 1.26 and a save percentage of .955.
Apr 25 - 11:46 PM

Frederik Andersen will be between the pipes for Monday's Game 6 against Nashville.

The Ducks were down 0-2 in the series when they gave Andersen the starting job and he's been fantastic ever since. The 26-year-old has a 1.00 goals-against-average and a .966 save percentage this postseason. The Ducks are one win away from making it to the second round.
Apr 25 - 7:41 PM

Frederik Andersen stopped 26 shots in the Ducks’ 5-2 win in Game 5 against the Predators on Saturday night.

This was certainly not the Ducks’ best game, as they were on the wrong side of a 55-38 score-adjusted (possession) game. And the Preds out-chanced them at even strength 17-10. Andersen gave up the game’s first goal in the first period, and then one in the third that cut the lead to 3-2. He has a 1.00 GAA and .965 SV% in three playoff games. The Ducks are a game away from advancing.
Apr 23 - 9:02 PM

Frederik Andersen will make his third consecutive start Saturday.

The Ducks went with John Gibson in Games 1 and 2 and found themselves in a 2-0 hole when they travelled to Nashville. Andersen then got the net and has stopped 57 of 58 shots in garnering two wins and getting the Ducks back in the series. Andersen is slated to be an RFA at the end of the season and don't be surprised if he is elsewhere in 2016-17 as the Ducks seem to like Gibson more. Andersen will give some team great goaltending as he deserves to be a number one goalie in the NHL.
Apr 23 - 6:39 AM

Frederik Andersen made 30 saves on 31 shots to quiet the Nashville Predators in Game 4 and pull the Ducks back in the first round series with a 4-1 win.

The Ducks turned to John Gibson in the first two games and fell behind 0-2 in the series. Anaheim turned to Andersen in Games 3 and 4 and are now heading back home with the series tied 2-2. Andersen was sensational in Nashville, stopping 57 of the 58 shots he faced in the two games to set up a best-of-three battle with home ice advantage to decide the series.
