The fact that Anderson was an enforcer with a couple (surprisingly) good offensive seasons with the Salt Lake Golden
Eagles wasn't the big thing when the Devils acquired him. Giving up what proved to be a future Selke winner to get him
was probably what hurt.
He was a regular for the most part in his first few seasons with the Devils, but with the emergence of other enforcers, he
would be relegated to playing mostly in Utica up until his contract ran out.
He would sign with the expansion Sharks thereafter and play 48 games for them that season, pulling in 143 PIMs in the
process. That would be his only season with the Sharks, though. He finished his career in the IHL: one season with the
San Diego Gulls and one with the Salt Lake Golden Eagles.
He still holds two Devils records, both playoff records, and both involving the PIMs. He still has the most minutes in
one series (48 against the Islanders), and the most minutes in one playoff season (113).
He would have a hand in establishing the San Jose Sharks Alumni Association in 2002.
