Frederik Andersen helped the Ducks with 23 saves in a 4-1 win over Buffalo on Wednesday night to make it sixth straight for the Ducks.
Making his sixth straight start for the Ducks, the talented young net-minder continued his hot streak, making 23 saves to earn a sixth win. Andersen was busier than you might expect as the Ducks were in cruise control for most of the night offensively after building up an early lead. With the Ducks playing so well, Andersen was likely a steal in many drafts this season. Oct 23 - 2:03 AM

Frederik Andersen is expected to start against Buffalo Wednesday night.

Andersen will be making his sixth straight start. He has a 1.38 GAA and .950 save percentage this season.

Frederik Andersen was awarded with the NHL's second star of the week.

The Anaheim netminder posted a 4-0-0 record to go with a 1.22 goals-against average, a .955 save percentage and one shutout. Andersen's first NHL shutout came in a 3-0 win over St. Louis on Sunday when he blocked all 28 shots he faced.

Frederik Andersen stopped all 28 shots he faced in Anaheim’s 3-0 win over the St. Louis Blues.

The Blues played on Saturday and were without Paul Stastny on Sunday. Andersen has been pretty solid since entering the NHL last season. He now has a 25-5-0 record in his career and improves to 5-0-0 on the season. Many expected Andersen and John Gibson to split time in goal for Anaheim, but Andersen has started five games to Gibson’s one. The 25-year-old has a firm grasp of the starting job.

Frederik Andersen was nearly perfect on Friday night, allowing only a Jason Zucker shot to beat him in a 2-1 win over Minnesota.

It was a soft goal, too. Zucker took a simple wrister from the left dot and beat him far side. Aside from that mishap however, Andersen stopped each of the 27 other shots sent his way and even made a couple of beauties.
Oct 18 - 1:10 AM

Frederik Andersen turned aside 39 of the 42 shots he faced en route to a 4-3 shootout win over Philadelphia Tuesday night.

After youngster John Gibson was unsuccessful in the Ducks' season opener against Pittsburgh, Andersen has rattled off three straight victories and has jumped ahead to an early lead in the team's goaltending battle. In his three consecutive victories he has posted a 1.95 GAA and a .928 save percentage.

It looks like Frederik Andersen will start on Tuesday.

That's based on the fact that he led the Ducks onto the ice for their pregame warmups. He has a 1.50 GAA and .927 save percentage in two games this season.
Oct 14 - 6:37 PM

Frederik Andersen turned aside 11 of 12 shots in Anaheim's 5-1 win over Buffalo.

The Sabres aren't exactly a team that keeps opposing goaltenders up at night, so it's hard to read too much into Andersen's performance. Still, Andersen has now won his first two starts in 2014-15.
Oct 13 - 5:50 PM

Frederik Andersen made 27 saves as the Ducks downed the Red Wings 3-2 on Saturday night.

A much steadier outing than John Gibson’s in the first game of the season, when he gave up six goals on 39 shots. Andersen gave up one in the second and the other early in the third period. Both Ducks goalies have the talent to be number ones. The question is when that consistency will show up at the NHL level. It's likely both will continue to share the duty early in the season.
Oct 11 - 10:14 PM

Frederik Andersen will play between the pipes on Saturday.

John Gibson started in the Ducks' opening game, likely in part because it was in Pittsburgh and that's Gibson's hometown. Andersen had a 2.29 GAA and .923 save percentage in 28 games last season.
Oct 10 - 9:59 AM

Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau has not tipped his hand as to how Frederik Andersen and John Gibson will split starts between the pipes.

Andersen is getting the start for the final preseason game, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s the man for the first game of the regular season. It’s likely that the two will share the job, at least early on, making them tough to rely on in fantasy leagues, though there is upside here, too. "What you’ll find is a lot of times, there’s not great consistency that they’re going to play the same way for 45-50 straight games," Boudreau said. "One guy is going to get hot, we'll run with him. The other guy is going to get hot, we're going to run with him. One guy might get tired because they haven't played a lot of games in a row and we'll be able to see it and Roli [goalie coach Dwayne Roloson] will see it. We'll shift the other guy in."
Oct 4 - 8:48 PM

Frederik Andersen allowed four goals on 28 shots in Anaheim’s 4-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings.

Kings’ forward Jeff Carter got the better of Andersen tonight, beating him three times during the contest. Despite the rough outing, Andersen is projected to split time in the Ducks' goal with John Gibson this season. Sami Vatanen and Emerson Etem scored for Anaheim in the loss.
Sep 28 - 10:54 PM

Frederik Andersen earned a 27-save shutout over Colorado on Monday.

Andersen is competing with John Gibson and Jason LaBarbera for the Ducks' starting job and this should obviously help him in that battle. Andersen had a 2.29 GAA and .923 save percentage in 28 games last season.
Sep 23 - 8:58 AM

Frederik Andersen is penciled in as Anaheim's starting goalie entering training camp, but not even coach Bruce Boudreau knows how the team's crease situation will turn out yet.

"We think we've got two really good goalies and an experienced, veteran goalie," Boudreau said referring to Andersen, John Gibson and Jason LaBarbera. "I think we're OK there, I just don't know how it will shake out." Gibson has a shot at being the Ducks' starter as well, but with LaBarbera on the roster the young netminder could also begin the year in the minors to get playing time and continue his development.
Sep 1 - 1:27 PM

Frederik Andersen's lower body injury was a sprained MCL.

Andersen was close to recovering when the Ducks were eliminated, so he might have been available for the Western Conference Final. He might end up competing with John Gibson for the starting job in 2014-15, but we wouldn't rule out the possibility of the Ducks signing a veteran goaltender to a short-term contract.
