Rangers loan Lias Andersson to HV71 of SHL

The Rangers have loaned forward Lias Andersson to HV71 of the SHL. This is a good first step in the Andersson/Rangers relationship, which hasn’t exactly been great since Lias left Hartford earlier this season.

John Davidson has been chatting with Lias and there was a reported thawing in the relationship. With Lias starting to play hockey again, it helps improve his trade value, which helps the Blueshirts out in their quest to find a suitor.

All in all, this is good news, even if relatively minor.
