Emil Andrae is ready to take another step

Emil Andrae saw some time with the Flyers earlier this season, playing in four games and recording a minus-1 on the stat sheet. But the former second-round pick has continually displayed a two-way game, dating back to his days in the SHL and HockeyAllsvenskan. 

He saw time with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms last season, recording six points and two goals in 10 games before breaking out this season with 30 points and four goals in 50 games through March 21st. 

Though undersized at 5’9, 181 lbs, don’t let that fool you, as he’s withstood roughly 23 minutes per game with the Phantoms. Considering the overall physical nature that the AHL brings, that’s impressive, but so is his overall reckless abandon, patience, and positioning. 

While he predictably logged third-pairing minutes throughout his four games with the Flyers, Andrae also landed five body checks and six blocks. Adjust that to an 82-game slate, and Andrae’s blocking 123 shots and finishing 103 checks. 

Since he saw some action in the NHL back in October, Andrae is already on the radar to make the jump next season. He only needs to show off that two-way game in camp against a couple of A-squads, and he will find his way into the lineup.
