Frederik Andersen allowed seven goals on 24 shots in Toronto's 7-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
There's been a lot of talk about Andersen's underwhelming play in Toronto these days and this performance certainly won't help. There's no doubt that the 27-year-old has been disappointing so far, but we knew that going from Anaheim to Toronto wasn't going to be easy. Andersen is 1-1-3 with a 4.29 goals-against-average and a .851 save percentage in 2016-17. He hasn't been good, but the Maple Leafs aren't exactly perfect in their own zone. Oct 26 - 12:21 AM

Frederik Andersen will be between the pipes in Tuesday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Andersen has just one win in his first four outings as a Maple Leaf. He's allowed at least four goals in each of his three losses in 2016-17. He has a 3.64 goals-against-average and a .879 save percentage this season.

Independent goalie coach Steve McKichan believes Frederik Andersen is guilty of thinking too much.

"As a goalie, you can't be thinking," McKichan said. "It's such a reactive position. What he's hinting at there is that he's thinking. A goaltender can't force their will on the game, they have to deal with the hand they're dealt and see what comes at them." Andersen has struggled in three of his first four starts with the Maple Leafs, but it's still too early to panic.

Frederik Andersen had a save percentage of .886 with four goals against 31 saves in Saturday night’s 5-4 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Andersen now has three overtime losses in his 2016-17 record versus one win. With a little more help at the other end of the ice he could become a solid proposition for fantasy players and that could make him a great differentiator for anyone bold enough to be the first to climb on his bandwagon.

Frederik Andersen will be between the pipes for Saturday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Andersen was given the night off in Thursday's game against Minnesota. He'll enter tonight's game with a 1-0-2 record, a 3.60 goals-against-average and a .876 save percentage.

Frederik Andersen allowed five goals on 34 shots in Wednesday's 5-4 OT loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

Andersen blanked the Jets in the first half of this game, but things changed in a hurry. Winnipeg overcame a four-goal deficit to force overtime and rookie Patrik Laine won the game in the extra frame. Andersen has a 1-0-2 record with a 3.60 goals-against-average and a .876 save percentage this season. He's in no danger of losing his starting job in Toronto.

Frederik Andersen will get the nod on Wednesday night versus Winnipeg.

He was much better against the Bruins on Saturday after a sub-par performance versus Ottawa in Toronto's season opener. Andersen owns a 1-0-1 record with a 2.98 GAA and an .891 save percentage.

Frederik Andersen stopped 24 and let one shot pass in the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-1 victory over the Boston Bruins Saturday night.

Andersen moved over from the Anaheim Ducks this year, where he had 22 wins in 43 games in the 2015-16 season and 35 wins in 54 games in 2014-15. With a save percentage of .960 and only one goal against, he was a key component to winning one’s fantasy roster.
Oct 16 - 10:43 AM

Frederik Andersen will try to bounce back on Saturday against Boston.

"I'm trying to be more comfortable in situations. I have to trust myself more . . . I second-guessed myself in some situations," Andersen said. "You get here and you work on that, to get rid of it." He allowed five goals on 30 shots in Wednesday's opener and admitted that he should've had at least two of them. Andersen expects much more from himself and the Leafs expect more from him too. Perhaps he can rebound with his father, Ernst, and 11-year-old brother, Valdermar, in attendance from Denmark for Saturday's home opener.
Oct 14 - 9:30 AM

Frederik Andersen allowed five goals on 30 shots in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Ottawa Senators.

This was Andersen's first game as a Toronto Maple Leaf and it didn't go very well. His numbers were expected to go down after going from Anaheim to Toronto, but he'll need to be better going forward. The Leafs held a 4-3 lead going into the third period (thanks to Auston Matthews' four goals), but let it slip away in regulation before Kyle Turris scored the game-winning goal just 37 seconds into overtime. Andersen will continue to be the Leafs starting goalie, which makes him somewhat appealing in standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 12 - 10:12 PM

Frederik Andersen will start his first game with the Maple Leafs on Wednesday night.

He struggled a bit in the preseason, but he was coming back from an injury and not playing in front of an NHL lineup. Andersen and the Leafs will be the visiting team against Ottawa on Wednesday. He has a 3-0 record with a 1.65 GAA and a .941 save percentage in his career versus the Senators.
Oct 12 - 1:31 PM

Frederik Andersen gave up four goals in the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

The Leafs cannot be overly enthused by Andersen’s lack of performance. His save percentage of .826 is considerably lower than any previous season in the NHL or AHL. Last year with the Anaheim Ducks he recorded a .919 with 22 wins in 43 games played.
Oct 8 - 10:25 PM

Frederik Andersen is projected to play between the pipes on Thursday.

Andersen is getting ready for his first campaign with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He had a 2.30 GAA and .919 save percentage in 43 contests with Anaheim in 2015-16.
Oct 6 - 12:37 PM

Frederik Andersen will make his Maple Leafs debut on Tuesday night.

And so it begins. Andersen will begin his era in Toronto as the undisputed primary goalie, the first time in his career he's without a challenger. Now entering his age-27 season, all eyes will be on him, which, if we're honest, is probably exactly what he's wanted all along.
Oct 3 - 1:28 PM

Frederik Andersen (upper body) could be back in the crease as early as Sunday's exhibition against Montreal.

He didn't offer a timetable for his return, but he was on the ice for Wednesday's practice. "It's progressing pretty good ... I'm still day to day, but it's been going pretty good," said Andersen.
