2019-20 Player Review: Big Josh Anderson is a big question mark

2019-20 Player Review: Big Josh Anderson is a big question mark

Photo by Andre Ringuette/NHLI via Will the power winger play for Columbus in 2021? The biggest question facing the Columbus Blue Jackets this offseason is what to do with forward Josh Anderson. Anderson had a career year in 2018-19, scoring 27 goals and 20 assists in a full 82 game season. He then was a dominant force in the first round sweep of the Tampa Bay Lightning. He injured his shoulder in the second round series against the Boston Bruins, which left less than 100% at the start of this season. His lethal shot failed him (only 1.6% shooting this season), he missed much of October...

It’s quite different typing this up in October rather than late June, but we’re finally here folks, the 2020 NHL Draft is just a couple of weeks away which means it’s draft board time. We last did this exercise back in 2018 where the Flyers held two first round picks and selected Joel Farabee along with Jay O’Brien.
