Jan 14 - 9:16 AM

Josh Anderson has shown a lot of promise this season, but to take another next step he needs to be a more consistent producer.

"He has seven goals right now, that’s good stuff," said Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella. "But he has to continue to stay on top of himself as far as . . . what it is to be a pro. I’m not sure on that with him. Does it get good to him because he had a good night? Or, does he come back and do it the next game with even more concentration? That’s the key with these young guys. I have a question mark with Josh on that." Anderson had a goal and two assists on Tuesday and also found the back of the net on Friday. Before that though he went four games without a point and he also had an eight-game point drought earlier in the campaign. It's not unusual for young players to go on more severe hot and cold streaks, but he might end up with 40-50 points this season regardless.

This was Anderson's second three-point night of the season. He's now up to seven goals, 10 points, a plus-10 rating and 19 penalty minutes in 21 games this season.
