Anderson played through a shoulder injury that he sustained during Game 2 against the Bruins, Tom Reed of The Athletic reports.
The fact that Anderson was able to play through his injury suggests it shouldn't hinder his offseason program, so it's safe to assume that he'll be back to 100 percent well ahead of next season's training camp. The 25-year-old winger logged his best campaign as a pro in 2018-19, setting career highs in goals (27), assists (20), shots on goal (230) and games played (82). He should be viewed as a solid bench option in deeper leagues heading into next year's fantasy drafts.
Anderson scored a short-handed goal and added an assist at even strength during Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Lightning in Game 1 of their first-round series.
After collecting the lone helper on Nick Foligno's goal in the second period to begin the Jackets' comeback from a 3-0 deficit, Anderson tied the score midway through the third with his shortie. The 24-year-old now has three goals and seven points in 12 career postseason games.
Anderson scored twice and added an assist in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Canucks.
It's his second game of three or more points in March, having recorded four points against the Bruins on March 12. Anderson has career highs in points (45), hits (198) and shots (217). The winger has received second-line deployment recently, making him highly productive in formats that reward physicality.
Anderson picked up a power-play assist in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Flames.
Anderson also had four hits and five shots on goal in the contest. The winger has two goals and five helpers over his last six games, adding 26 shots and 23 hits in that span. He's had a career year with 42 points, 195 hits and 212 shots -- all of which are new personal bests for the 24-year-old.
Andersen scored a goal and added three assists in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Bruins.
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.
Anderson scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Canadiens.
From a team point of view, Tuesday's result was not favorable in any way for Columbus. That said, Anderson, 24, is having quite the 2018-19 campaign. The Blue Jackets' forward is up to 21 goals and 32 points, both career highs. In addition to the two points, Anderson finished with four shots on goal and also dished out four hits.
Anderson tallied a power-play goal and an assist Thursday in a 4-2 win over the Coyotes.
After going eight straight games without finding the back of the net, Anderson has done so three times in the last four. The 24-year-old sniper has now collected 18 goals through 53 contests this season, also possessing a superb plus-15 rating. He's certainly not afraid to let it fly either, owning 141 shots on goal.
Anderson produced an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Sabres.
The helper is nice and all, but Anderson, who's better known for his scoring acumen, hasn't lit the lamp since Jan. 5. It's been eight games since the Ontario native last put the puck in the net, but he's still averaging 2.65 shots per game as a sign of hope that he'll turn it around soon.
Anderson tallied an assist, two PIM, three shots and three hits during Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Predators.
Anderson has picked up just four goals and six points over his last 17 games. The Blue Jackets continue to have high hopes for the 24-year-old winger, who could finish with close to 30 goals in 2018-19, but his fantasy value remains reserved for deeper leagues until he can heat up more offensively.
Anderson (upper body) will play Thursday against LA.
Anderson is expected to slot into his usual role, skating on the Blue Jackets' second line and second power-play unit against the Kings. The 24-year-old winger has notched 12 goals and 15 points in 30 appearances this season.
Anderson (upper body) is probable for Thursday's matchup with Los Angeles, Craig Merz of NHL.com reports.
The club deciding to send Zac Dalpe down to the minors would seem to indicate it is fairly confident that Anderson will suit up, however coach John Tortorella didn't specifically clear him for action. If the winger is unable to give it a go, Oliver Bjorkstrand figures to slot into the vacated second-line role while Lukas Sedlak rejoins the lineup.
Anderson (upper body) is considered day-to-day ahead of Thursday's matchup with the Kings, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
Anderson's upper-body issue doesn't appear to be overly serious, but at this point he should probably be considered iffy at best for Thursday's contest. If Anderson's unable to go, Lukas Sedlak will likely draw into the lineup against LA.
Anderson suffered an upper-body injury and won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Canucks.
Anderson is having a strong season firing the puck, scoring 12 goals and adding three assists in 30 games. He's not afraid to rough it up either with 74 hits. If Anderson's injury holds him out of Thursday's game versus the Kings, the Blue Jackets will likely make a call to AHL Cleveland to add depth.
Anderson scored two goals on five shots while adding two PIM, a hit and a plus-1 rating in Friday's 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs.
He gave the Jackets an early 2-0 lead with his 11th and 12th goals of the season, snapping a brief three-game point drought. The 24-year-old is well on pace to top last year's career-high 19 goals, but Anderson's offensive contributions remain extremely one-sided -- he's only managed two assists in 23 games.
Anderson scored an empty-net goal between a team-high four shots in Thursday's 4-1 win over San Jose.
Anderson found the empty net in the waning moments of the game, scoring his seventh goal of the year to take over the team lead. The fifth-year winger upped his point total to eight through 12 games this season, so he's at least worth keeping tabs on in the fantasy realm.
Anderson scored a goal Thursday in a 6-3 win over the Flyers.
The 24-year-old now has four goals on the young season and continues to stay relevant in fantasy despite playing nearly four fewer minutes per game than he did in 2017-18. Anderson presently finds himself in a bottom-six role; however, more performances like the one he had Thursday should earn him more ice time down the road.
Anderson sealed the 5-2 victory over the Avalanche with an empty-net goal Tuesday.
It was Anderson's only shot of the game, but he made it count. The winger has a pair of tallies through the opening three games of the season on 11 shots for an 18.2 shooting percentage -- a level he is unlikely to sustain throughout the year. The 24-year-old's production comes despite him seeing a significant drop in ice time so far compared to last season (14:29 compared to 18:02).
Anderson earned a helper during Thursday's Game 4 matchup with Washington.
Since returning from a 17-game absence due to injury, Anderson has been steadily productive with four points in six outings. Excluding Game 1, the Ontario native has been logging big minutes for the Blue Jackets (19:37 per game), which are somewhat inflated considering the first three games all went into overtime. Still, there is no denying the fact that coach John Tortorella appears to like the 23-year-old's work ethic and physical style of play.
Anderson scored a goal and had an assist in a 5-4 overtime win against the Capitals in Sunday's Game 2.
The only splash Anderson made in Game 1 was picking up 15 PIM, so this performance was certainly more beneficial to the Blue Jackets. Anderson missed a big chunk of the season due to injury, and he's only played in four games since returning. It's encouraging for Columbus to see him make an impact like this.
Anderson (knee) will play Thursday night versus the Penguins, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic Cleveland reports.
This will be Anderson's first game since Feb. 26. He'll presumably settle in on the third line with Sonny Milano and Brandon Dubinsky as the Blue Jackets seek to pick up at least one point to clinch a playoff spot. Anderson has picked up 18 goals and 11 assists to mirror his points output from the 2016-17 campaign, when it took him 17 more games to reach that mark.
