11:08AM: Andersson posted a message on his Instagram thanking Frolunda for his time there.
9:03AM: Frolunda GM, and former Ranger, Freddy Sjostrom said that Lias Andersson is expected to spend the rest of the season in North America. (Hockey Sverige)
The Rangers loaned Andersson to Frolunda to start the year but following the World Junior Tournament the Rangers assigned him to Hartford.
In Hartford, Andersson has 1 goal and 5 assists in 8 games.
Hartford coach Keith McCambridge said "I like Lias' game a lot right now. I think he's skating well, he's learning to be in areas of the ice that are a little bit different from over in Europe. I liked his goal (on Feb. 7 vs. Bridgeport), it was a hard-working goal, going to the front of the net, and he's been playing really good hockey for us." (Rangers Prospect Report 2/13/18)

Adam Rotter: We will likely see Andersson with the Rangers at some point this season, probably after the trade deadline. I don't think the Rangers really expected to be in this position when they sent Andersson to Sweden but things have changed and once the Rangers clear the decks, or at least move on from David Desharnais, Andersson will likely get some time in the NHL.
