Andreas Engqvist(22) Montreal Canadiens

Undrafted 2nd year center Andreas Engqvist(22) has been recalled and reassigned 6 (and counting) times by Montreal Canadiens from their AHL affiliate Hamilton Bulldogs.

He’s back with the big club again but in 11 games this season he has still yet to register his first NHL point. He has played 14 total contests so far. In 44 AHL games with the Bulldogs he has 18 goals and 16 assists for a team leading 34 points.

At 6’4″ he is a rangy player but doesn’t carry the weight (197 lbs.) to match his height.

His current deal is a 3-year entry level contract. Look for him to bulk up in the offseason and likely qualify for another year with the Canadiens.

No doubt the 24-year old big man from Stockholm, Sweden has some skills. They’re just not on full display in North American style hockey yet. He is somewhat injury prone.
