Observations:

March 2016 – Andreoff has found it easier to get into the Kings' lineup this season, although he hasn't contributed much in terms of scoring with four goals and one assist through 49 games. Where Andreoff has found statistical significance is in penalty minutes, with 70 minutes (1.43 per game). He currently sits 41st in the league in penalty minutes, so there are likely better options available on your waiver wire. Philip Kamhi

 

May 2015 – Though he was up in Los Angeles all year, Andreoff saw more pine than ice. However, he might be in line for a bigger part next season because of LA's cap crunch. Always willing to mix it up, his defensive acumen makes him more NHL-worthy than the common enforcer. Sheng Peng

 

June 2014- Andreoff improved his passing skills and improved his assist totals this season. One of the things his coaches wanted him to work on was his on-ice discipline, which was a priority coming into this season. They said he has advanced in that area but want that to remain a focus for him. While his PIM numbers increased, so did his number of games played and ice time as he showed the ability to avoid being baited into careless major penalties. With the center position being a weak spot for Los Angeles, they are looking for Andreoff to show consistency in his offensive numbers. Pete Richmire

 

November, 2013 – Andreoff is a center who at times seems to be busier looking for his next scrap as opposed to his next goal. Certainly not one to back down, some on-ice discipline may help his point totals. The benefit Andreoff has shown to date is his play in odd-man situations. His penalty killing abilities have drawn praise from his coaches but he needs to improve his offense to be a bigger all-around threat. Pete Richmire

 

Fantasy Outlook: D+

In the long run, Andreoff should contribute his share of PIMS, but probably not much else.
