2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Blue Jackets' front office took some flak for the decision to sacrifice William Karlsson to the Golden Knights in the expansion draft in order to protect Anderson given Karlsson's breakout, but the move may look a little more reasonable in the long run. The 24-year-old power forward had 18 goals and 29 points in 61 games prior to suffering a knee injury that ended up costing him 17 games down the stretch, supplying a physical edge up front that an aging Brandon Dubinsky had trouble providing. The Jackets' depth on the wing could keep Anderson in a third-line role in 2018-19, and as of yet he hasn't received a lot of power-play time, so a breakout of his own could be unlikely. Nonetheless, as the veterans on the roster move on, he figures to fill a key top-six role down the road. Read Past Outlooks

Career night against Bruins
RWColumbus Blue Jackets
March 13, 2019
Andersen scored a goal and added three assists in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Bruins.
ANALYSIS
He recorded a helper in all three game situations -- short-handed, even strength and with the man advantage -- en route to a career-high four-point performance. Anderson had only two points, both assists, in his prior eight games, but if he continues to click with Matt Duchene and Ryan Dzingel on the Jackets' second line, the rugged winger could be headed for a big finish to the season.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The young power forward took a big step forward in his development last year, playing a full NHL season for the first time and scoring 17 goals despite a lack of power-play opportunities or a top-six role. Also, the Blue Jackets front office consider Anderson an important enough building block that they sent a first-round pick to Las Vegas to keep him from being selected in the expansion draft. While it’s tough to see the 23-year-old moving up the depth chart any time soon given the talent Columbus possesses on the wings, Anderson could help make the team’s third line one of the most dangerous in the NHL if he continues to improve in 2017-18.
