  • Ducks' Axel Andersson: Assigned to minor-league affiliate

    Andersson was assigned to AHL San Diego after completing his loan with Sodertalje SK in Sweden's second division, per CapFriendly.

    The 21-year-old Andersson had 11 points in 51 games with Sodertalje in 2020-21. He'll likely have to complete a quarantine prior to linking up with the Gulls. A second-round pick from 2018, Andersson was part of the return the Ducks received in the Ondrej Kase trade in February of 2020.

    Andersson and the first-round pick are the most valuable portion of the Ducks' return in Friday's deal.

Still just 20 years old, Andersson is a candidate to debut in the NHL at some point over the next couple of seasons if he continues to succeed while progressing levels.
