Lias Andersson said that he thinks that going back to Frolunda for this season was the best option for him. (Hockey Sverige)
Andersson said that the Rangers trust Frolunda so that this seems like a "safe" move for both sides. (Hockey Sverige)
He said that the Rangers decided that Frolunda would be the best place for him rather than being the 13th forward and going up and down between Hartford and New York. (GP)
Andersson added that he is glad to have settled on a place to play this season after a lot of time thinking about whether he would be in the NHL, AHL or SHL. (Hockey Sverige)
He added, "I'm better off playing a lot at home and developing in a good environment. (GP)
Jeff Gorton and Alain Vigneault said that they expect Andersson to get a lot ice time and play a bigger role in Frolunda than he would with the Rangers.
