Prospect Of The Week: Rasmus Andersson

by Torie Peterson / Calgary Flames

Rasmus Andersson is on quite the streak.

The Barrie Colts defenceman extended his point streak to six games, collecting two goals and an assist in the three games the team played this past week.

The 19-year-old has been held pointless in just one game this month and now has seven goals and 26 points on the year -- good for fourth in scoring amongst all defencemen in the Ontario Hockey League and just two points shy of leader Roland McKeown.

On Wednesday, Andersson picked up an assist in Barrie's 6-3 victory over the Owen Sound Attack. He was a plus-one, had one shot on net, and was tabbed with one minor penalty (delay of game) in the win.

The Colts were back in action on Thursday, taking on the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. Barrie were edged in the game, 2-1, but it was Andersson who netted their lone goal, put seven shots on net, and was the game's third star.

Barrie ended the week with a game against Flames prospect Riley Bruce and the North Bay Battalion on Saturday, a contest they dropped by a score of 5-2. Andersson had one of the Colts' goals and put four shots on net.

Andersson and the Colts are now on their Christmas break, getting back to action on Dec. 28 when they host the Niagara IceDogs.
