Freddie Andersen is just fantastic
When the Carolina Hurricanes replaced their netminders this summer, a lot of people wondered if it was the right decision. Frederik Andersen would like to ask everyone who doubted him to stop talking. He’s also come so close to adding a goal to his resume. He’s been brilliant on the ice and off the ice. He’s been incredible, and he committed a crime last night for the Hurricanes.
Obviously, Andersen has been a big reason the Canes have the lowest goals-against total in the NHL. He’s a big reason the Canes are as good as they are and as high as they are in the standings. Freddie has dominated a lot of teams for a lot of reasons. He’s been excellent in 40 save wins, he’s been great making highlight-reel saves, or just keeping the team in games in general.
Is there a reason why Andersen can be blamed for any of the Canes’ losses to this point in the season? Is there any game you look at and think “Well if the Canes had a better goalie, they could have won that game”. Freddie has been a good goalie for as long as he’s been in the City of Oaks.
Whether he’s been asked to stop 20 or 40, Freddie has been one of the best Canes this season no matter what the game dictated. He’s been a standout player for the team and he will continue to be for the season.
