Future Watch: Michael Anderson Hockey Cards, Los Angeles Kings – Mikey Anderson was drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the fourth round of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. The Fridley, Minnesota native has a lot of spunk, and a boatload of hockey I.Q. that has carried him a long way so far.
This talented defenseman played two full years for the Waterloo Black Hawks in the USHL leading up to the NHL Draft. In 111 games, he potted six goals and added 44 assists, and his combined postseason numbers were five goals and three assists in 17 games.
In 2017-18, Anderson attended Minnesota Duluth. In his freshman season, he tallied five goals and 23 points in 39 games. His team won the National Championship and he was a factor. During that season, Anderson was also selected to be on the U20 World Junior Championship team representing USA Hockey. He had a point in seven games and took home a bronze medal.
In 2018-19, the blueliner had six goals and 27 points in 40 games. During the final Frozen Four game against UMass in 2019, he scored a second-period goal to put his team up 2-0 en route to a 3-0 win and back-to-back titles. Incidentally, Anderson factored in on all three scores that night. All this took place while Anderson went back to the World Junior Championship, upgrading to a silver medal with a five points in a seven-game performance.
In 2019-20, the prospect started his pro career with the AHL’s Ontario Reign. In 53 games, he had 15 points. Not a bad start at all for a 20 year-old. In late February 2020, the Kings called him up, and he played in six games scoring one goal. His first NHL game, by the way, came against was against his older brother Joey (his teammate in college).
Here’s a look at Anderson’s first NHL goal:
