Andersson, who will be 19 next month, was selected No. 7 overall in this year's NHL draft and impressed during training camp. However, he was loaned back to Frolunda among the moves announced Thursday as the Rangers trimmed their roster.
The Rangers also announced 18-year-old center Filip Chytil earned the Lars-Erik Sjoberg Award, given to the rookie in training camp. Chytil, selected No. 21 overall, had a goal and two assists in four preseason games.
