6th year Swedish-born defenseman Calle Andersson(55) agreed to stay on another season with SC Bern after helping them win the 2017 NLA Championship last season.

He was also just recently extended through 2018/2019, as he’s off to a bit of a hot start in the new calendar.

In 14 games he’s tied last year’s 2 goals and added 4 assists.

The very decently-sized 6’2″ 217 lbs. blue liner was almost ironically bought out of the final year of his entry level deal with New York Rangers after being¬†reassigned to affiliate Hartford Wolf Pack and recorded three assists in 4 AHL games but was obviously very unhappy spending one more second in the minors.

He played the first year of his contract in Switzerland for a pair of clubs but also had two previous years of pro experience in the SHL with Farjestad BK and a follow-up campaign hometown and junior squad Malmo Redhawks.

At 23-years old, he’s still pretty young and could get another look at the NHL level before it’s a full European career for this skater.
