Frederik Andersen will get the start in Thursday's game against Boston.

Andersen is coming off a brutal performance in which he allowed three goals on seven shots against the New York Rangers. The 25-year-old is struggling a little bit of late. He has just one win in his last four decisions for the Ducks. Andersen has a 31-11-5 record with a 2.42 goals-against-average and .913 save percentage.
Mar 26 - 5:34 PM

Frederik Andersen was pulled in Sunday's 7-2 loss to the Rangers after he allowed three goals on seven shots.

The Ducks scored two goals in the first period, but they still trailed 3-2 at the first intermission. The 25-year-old was pulled after just 10:16 of action. Andersen's record falls to 31-11-5 with a 2.42 goals-against-average and a .913 save percentage in 49 games this season. John Gibson replaced Andersen but he didn't fare much better.
Mar 22 - 10:40 PM

Frederik Andersen will get the start against the NY Rangers on Sunday night.

Andersen comes in with a 31-10-5 record with a .915 save percentage and a 2.36 GAA through 48 games thus far. He also owns 29 Quality Starts against eight Really Bad Starts this season. Andersen has faced the Rangers just once previously, making 32 saves in a 2-1 win back in November of 2013.
Mar 22 - 5:33 PM

Frederik Andersen stopped 22 pucks in Friday night's 3-2 overtime win over the Avalanche. The Duck have now taken over the top of the table league wide.

Andersen probably wants Ryan O'Reilly's short-handed goal back as Andersen was beaten on a straight breakaway on a simple lateral move. But the netminder was solid all night long, helping to stymie the Avalanche. The win improves his record to 31-10-5 with a .915 save percentage and a 2.36 GAA.
Mar 21 - 1:20 AM

Frederik Andersen will get the start versus the Colorado Avalanche on Friday night.

Andersen sports a 30-10-5 record with a .915 save percentage and a 2.37 GAA through 47 games this season. He also owns 28 Quality Starts against eight Really Bad Starts, not the kind of ratio one wants from their starter. Andersen has never faced the Avalanche before.
Mar 20 - 5:46 PM

Frederik Andersen allowed two goals on just 16 shots on Monday night, including the game winner with four minutes left in the third period during a 2-1 loss to Vancouver.

It's a tough loss for the 25-year-old Dane, as coach Bruce Boudreau is closely watching his two netminders to see who will emerge as the starter. Andersen's neck injury last month allowed call-up John Gibson to re-emerge for the big club, and he'll get a shot to take the starting role down the stretch. Games like Monday are no help to Andersen's bid for the job.
Mar 10 - 2:34 AM

Frederik Andersen will get the nod back in net once again Monday night versus the Canucks.

In spite of head coach Bruce Boudreau's plan to split time in net between Andersen and John Gibson, the Ducks will send out Andersen on back to back games Monday night. He is coming off a 5-2 loss to the Penguins last Friday where he gave up four goals on just 20 shots, but in four games against Vancouver this year, he has a 3-0-1 record, 1.19 goals-against-average, and .947 save percentage with one shutout. So those numbers may have influenced Boudreau's decision to give Anderson the nod Monday.
Mar 9 - 5:48 PM

Frederik Andersen stopped just 16 of 20 shots the Penguins sent his way on Friday night as the Ducks fell 5-2.

Andersen's poor goaltending allowed the Penguins to amass a 4-0 lead into the third period. A lead his team would chip away at, but never catch. It was Andersen's eighth Really Bad Start of the season, tying him for third most with several others including Ben Scrivens and Jonathan Quick. Andersen's record falls to 30-9-5 with a .915 save percentage and a 2.38 GAA.
Mar 7 - 1:05 AM

Frederik Andersen will get the start against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday night.

Andersen comes in with a 30-8-5 record with a .917 save percentage and a 2.34 GAA over 45 appearances this season. He also boasts 40 career Quality Starts over his first 73 career starts, including 28 this season.
Mar 6 - 5:44 PM

Frederik Andersen tied the NHL record for the fastest goaltender to reach the 50 career wins milestone when it comes to total decisions.

Andersen only needed 68 decisions (50-13-5) to reach that mark. Only Montreal's Bill Durnan, who got to the 50-win milestone on Dec. 16, 1944, has the same pace as Andersen in the history of the league. Andersen kicked out 29 of 30 shots in a 4-1 victory over Arizona on Tuesday. It was his first start since Feb. 8 due to a neck injury.
Mar 4 - 4:31 AM

Frederik Andersen allowed just one goal on 30 shots in a 4-1 Anaheim win over Arizona on Tuesday.

Making his first start since getting injured back on Feb. 8, it was an almost flawless effort from the Ducks' number one goalie. Arizona was obviously a great team to get him back in the flow of the NHL game. With the Ducks in a close race with Nashville for the President's trophy you have to think the Ducks will ride him hard down the stretch. He is 30-8-5 with a 2.34 goals-against-average and .917 save percentage in 45 appearances this season.
Mar 4 - 12:03 AM

Frederik Andersen is projected to start on Tuesday.

It will be his first game since Feb. 8 due to a neck injury. He has a 2.37 GAA and .916 save percentage in 44 contests in 2014-15. He was the clear starter before his injury, but he'll have to compete for playing time with John Gibson for the rest of the season.
Mar 3 - 1:45 PM

Look for Frederik Andersen (neck) to serve as Anaheim's backup goaltender on Friday.

The Ducks have sent Jason LaBarbera to the minors, which they presumably wouldn't have done unless Andersen was ready to dress. John Gibson has already been tapped to serve as the starter on Friday, but Andersen will probably play between the pipes on Sunday.
Feb 27 - 12:57 PM

Frederik Andersen has a good range of motion back in his injured neck.

At this point Andersen is mostly focused on his conditioning. He should be regarded as day-to-day at this point and when he does return, he'll likely be competing for starts with John Gibson.
