We wrote yesterday that Lias Andersson would “get every opportunity” to make the New York Rangers next season.
Today, Andersson — the seventh overall pick in last month’s draft — agreed to terms on his entry-level contract with the Blueshirts.
“Obviously my goal is to play in the NHL,” Andersson said after he was selected. “I know it’s tough, and if I don’t make it, maybe play in the American League or play back home in Sweden. I don’t know yet. We’ll figure something good out.”
