Kings' Lias Andersson: Scores game-winner

Anderson scored a goal on five shots in Wednesday's 5-3 win over Seattle.

The 22-year-old forward now has a goal and an assist in 20 games this season. It remains to be seen if Andersson will be able to crack the Kings' lineup come playoffs.

Kings' Lias Andersson: Registers assist with man advantage

Andersson posted a power-play assist in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Oilers. Andersson helped out on a Trevor Moore goal with 3:03 left in the contest. The 23-year-old Andersson has been a non-factor on offense so far -- this was his first point of the year in eight games. He's added 13 shots on net, eight hits and a minus-1 rating. Don't expect the Swede to play above the third line, and he could occasionally end up as a healthy scratch.

Fallout of the Lias Andersson/Jesse Puljujarvi non-trade

Yesterday afternoon, Elliotte Friedman was talking Edmonton’s Jesse Puljujarvi, and how he was almost traded to the Rangers for Lias Andersson. Based on the wording, it sounds like Ken Holland backed out, which led to the Rangers shipping Andersson to the Kings for a 2nd round pick. That pick wound up being Will Cuylle. From prior rumors, the Oilers had wanted more than just a 1:1 swap, so if Jeff Gorton at the time never budged, then this makes sense.
