The Toronto Maple Leafs announced today that the hockey club has acquired goaltender Frederik Andersen from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for the 30th overall selection from the 2016 NHL Entry Draft (originally acquired by Toronto from Pittsburgh) and a second round selection from the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.
Andersen posted a 22-9-7 record with a 2.30 goals-against-average (GAA) and .919 save-percentage (SV%) in 43 games (37 starts) last season with the Ducks. The 26-year-old also went 3-2 with a 1.41 GAA and .947 SV% in five playoff starts in the 2016 post-season.
In 125 career regular season games with Anaheim, Andersen has posted a 77-26-12 record with a 2.33 GAA and .918 SV%. He also holds a 17-9-2 career post-season record with a 2.34 GAA and .916 SV%. In 2014-15 season, Andersen became the fastest goaltender to reach the 26-win mark (26-5-0) in NHL history and tied the league record for the fastest to 50 career wins (50-13-5), originally set by Montreal’s Bill Durnan (50-9-9) in 1944. During the 2013-14 season, Andersen was named to the NHL All-Rookie Team after posting a 20-5-0 record with a 2.29 GAA and .923 SV% in 28 appearances. That season he led all rookie goaltenders in wins, goals-against average and save percentage -- the best numbers in those categories by any rookie netminder since 2010-11.
The Herning, Denmark native was selected by Anaheim in the third round (87th overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
