Anderson was acquired from the New Jersey Devils earlier this month in exchange for Andreas Johnsson. The Devils selected Anderson with the 73rd pick in the 2016 NHL draft and he played in 52 games for New Jersey prior to being traded, including 18 games last season in which he tallied four goals and two assists. He also recorded 15 goals and 19 assists in 44 games with Binghamton in the AHL last season.
The Minnesota native has represented the United States internationally on several occasions, and captained the US team to a bronze medal at the 2018 World Juniors where he picked up seven points in seven games.
