BLOG: Anderson Learned From NHL Experience

With 34 games in the NHL last season, Joey Anderson got a taste of what's needed to succeed in the big leagues

by Marc Ciampa /

Last season was the first pro campaign for Joey Anderson and he played 34 of his 47 games at the NHL level. He was asked what he learned from that experience. 

"I think just kind of that whole it's a 24/7 job," he began. 

"You go home, you're always working. You're always taking care of yourself and making sure you're ready to play and it doesn't go away no matter where you are and you're representing the Devils wherever you go. So you gotta be on your best behavior and make sure that you're representing the Devils in a professional way."

Drafted by the team in 2016, he's been to a number of Development Camps and was here in Buffalo last year for the Propects Challenge. He talked about what he can lend to the younger players coming into their first camp this year. 

"The way you go about your business at the rink,you can kind of help the younger guys see on what you know. Hopefully I can pick some things up from last year from the older NHL guys and then they can see that and then they start to pick up on that.

"Especially when we're in these tight games like yesterday. Hopefully the guys can stick together and battle through some adversity."
