Future Watch: Joey Anderson Rookie Hockey Cards, Devils

Future Watch: Joey Anderson Rookie Hockey Cards, DevilsFuture Watch: Joey Anderson Rookie Hockey Cards, DevilsJoey Anderson was drafted 73rd overall by the New Jersey Devils in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. At the time there were more than a few teams looking to draft this player who is the kind of player that most teams want on and off the ice.

In 2014-15 he played for the National Team Development Program. Some of his teammates were Auston Matthews (Leafs), Jack Roslovic (Jets), Clayton Keller (Coyotes) and Matthew Tkachuk (Flames), we can do this all day with the roster they had so the fact that he didn’t get top minutes is understandable. In 55 games he had 42 points, 21 of them were goals.

The next season in 64 games he had 57 points. 27 of them were goals. This was his draft year so there was little doubt that he would be selected, the fact that he fell to the third round was surprising. The Devils got great value.

After the draft, he attended the University of Minnesota-Duluth in 2016-17. In his first season there, playing with his brother Mikey (Kings draft pick), he had 12 goals and 37 points in 39 games. He was on the NCHC All-Rookie team. He made and played in seven games that winter in the U20 World Junior Championship and took home a gold medal.

2017-18 was huge for the winger. He had 27 points in 36 games in college and won a National Championship. In the World Junior Championship, he had seven points in seven games as the team captain and took home a bronze medal.

Collectors can find his Young Guns rookie card in 2018-19 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey. He has other rookie cards in O-Pee-Chee Platinum, Engrained, SP Game-Used and 2018-19 AHL as well.

Take a look at his first NHL goal:

Last season he had some injuries playing 13 games in Binghamton and 34 for the Devils.  He’s only 20. Bank on him being an impact player down the road.
