Offensive-minded defender with an entertaining style of play, Andrae has good speed and is very agile but his edge work is even better when transitioning to skating backwards and in making quick cuts to change direction, which helps him avoid hits when carrying the puck. A fantastic skater, Andrae accelerates to top speed in just a few strides and his low skating stance allows him to be very effective carrying the puck through the middle of the ice and avoiding opposing players. He doesn’t shy from physical battles or contact along the wall, but his size can hold him back in board battles and struggles to separate his man from the puck in the defensive zone when an opposing team starts cycling the play. He is very aggressive with the puck on his stick, preferring to skate the puck out of his own end rather than make a long pass. Shows advanced puckhandling abilities from the back end, with the creativity to make one-on-one moves, although he can be selfish with the puck at times and can run into turnover problems when he’s off his game. Offensively, he has a very powerful wrist shot that is very accurate, but he is more of a passer. He likes to make risky plays to find goal scoring chances and does hesitate to make a play even when it can cause a turnover. He is a great leader and talks a lot on the ice to guide his teammates in many situations.
