Josh Anderson has an excellent opportunity to make the Columbus Blue Jackets out of training camp.
The winger played mostly in the minors last season but managed 12 games with the big club and had a goal and four points. The Blue Jackets no longer should have David Clarkson and Jared Boll was an off-season buyout so Anderson has a great chance of making the team out of camp. The 22-year-old had 18 goals and 39 points in 58 games but shone in the post-season with seven goals and 12 points in 15 games as the Monsters won the Calder Cup. Look for Anderson to get 20-25 points this season and thusly is not fantasy worthy. Sep 25 - 6:53 AM
