Josh Anderson News
Montreal Canadiens right wing Josh Anderson (lower body) hasn't joined the team for Thursday's trip to Boston and will miss his third game of the season. The 28-year-old was injured in Tuesday's contest against Tampa Bay. Mike Hoffman is set to move into the top six in Anderson's absence. The veteran has had an underwhelming season with 12 goals and 17 assists in 57 games, but his fantasy value should get a brief boost, with Hoffman slated to skate with Nick Suzuki and Rafael Harvey-Pinard.
Montreal Canadiens right wing Josh Anderson suffered a lower-body injury late in Tuesday's contest against Tampa Bay. He was hurt when Tampa's defenseman Mikhail Sergachev pushed him into the empty net. The team announced that Anderson will undergo further tests on Wednesday and won't be among the traveling party for Thursday's visit to Boston. The 28-year-old has had a decent campaign on a bad team with 21 goals, 32 points and 139 hits in 69 outings. He's been skating on the second line with some very good results lately, as Anderson entered Tuesday's action having averaged a point per game across his previous six appearances.
Montreal Canadiens right wing Josh Anderson has been suspended for two games for boarding Vegas' Alex Pietrangelo in Saturday's 6-4 loss. He will be unavailable for Tuesday's visit to Detroit and Thursday's home game against Vancouver. Anderson hasn't done a lot this season, registering three goals and two assists, but he is still tied for the fifth-most points on the team and Montreal would obviously rather have him available. Anderson's suspension should help Rem Pitlick to get back into the lineup, and his absence also opens up a spot on the second power-play unit.
Montreal Canadiens winger Josh Anderson collected his first NHL hat trick in an 8-4 loss to Winnipeg Tuesday. Anderson's goals came in the first and second periods. He now has 15 markers and nine assists in 42 Habs contests this season. The 27-year-old has seven points in his last five games played. Despite having a solid outing against Winnipeg, Anderson shouldn't be a fantasy waiver wire consideration at this time.
