History

An American blueliner, Andricopoulos had underwhelming numbers across the board with only 15 points and 25 penalty minutes on the season. This is obviously a problem for a player who was expected to put up point totals as an offensive defenseman. He struggled to produce on a team that possessed a number of dangerous offensive weapons in players such as Alexander Radulov (NSH) and Josh Hennessy (SJ).

Talent Analysis

Andricopoulos showed his skills much of the year, particularly his skating ability, but struggled with consistency and getting results. But he is not strong defensively, nor physically. His poor season may or may not impact his draft positioning, depending on if teams draft by raw potential or by a proven ability to produce.
