Anderson is coming off a season with the Canadiens in which he scored 21 goals and 32 points in 69 games. Despite being in some trade rumours as of late, the 29-year-old is locked into a contract that has four years remaining with a cap hit of $5.5 million.

Anderson has spent the past three seasons with the Habs after being acquired prior to the 2020-21 season in exchange for Max Domi and a third-round pick. Prior to the deal, he had spent his first four full NHL seasons with the Columbus Blue Jackets. In 457 career games, he has 122 goals and 203 points.
