Frederik Andersen (upper body) is on track to be ready for the start of the season.

"He's progressing," GM Lou Lamoriello said. "We're certainly not going to rush anything. Until he's ready, we're not going to have any comment. He is progressing. He has had no setbacks." Andersen was hurt during an Olympic qualifying game for Denmark.
Sep 23 - 9:05 AM

Frederik Andersen will be sidelined for three-to-four weeks with an upper-body injury.

He won't be able to participate in the World Cup for Team Europe as a result of the injury, but if that timetable is accurate then he should be ready for the start of the regular season.
Sep 5 - 1:36 PM

The Maple Leafs will fly Frederik Andersen back to Toronto so that they can take evaluate his upper-body injury.

The injury occurred after Andersen collided with a teammate during Denmark's Olympic qualifying game against Slovenia on Friday. We still don't know how serious the injury is or if he'll be able to take part in this month's World Cup of Hockey. We'll continue to monitor this situation closely.

Frederik Andersen suffered an injury during Denmark's Olympic qualifier against Slovenia on Friday.

Andersen came out of his net to play the puck and one of his teammates crashed into him. The Leafs goalie stayed down for several minutes before exiting the game. It's unclear if the injury will affect his ability to play for Team Europe at the World Cup. The Maple Leafs traded a first-round pick in 2016 and a second-round pick in 2017 to acquire Andersen from the Ducks this summer. Toronto also gave the 26-year-old a five-year, $25 million extension.

Frederik Andersen is excited to be a member of the Maple Leafs.

"I'm happy about being in a spot, in a big hockey market," he said. "It will be fun developing with this young team that is very hungry for success. It will be a good experience." The Leafs sent two draft picks to the Ducks to acquire Andersen, including the 30th overall pick in 2016. Toronto GM Lou Lamoriello loves Andersen's competitiveness, size, athleticism and his solid play in the playoffs.

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.
Jun 19 - 8:06 AM

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.
