NHL COMPARABLE: Marek Zidlicky

UPSIDE: #4 to 6 – Depth Defenceman

My comparable for Rasmus Andersson is Marek Zidlicky and he would be extremely fortunate if he could follow the same career path. If you remember, Zidlicky started out as an offensive d-man that gradually adapted his game and his role to that of more of a 2 way guy. I’m not as high on Andersson as a lot of people and I’m not convinced his offensive abilities will translate over to the pros. At the middle part of the 2nd round though, it’s a good gamble.
