Forward Joey Anderson is coming off a huge year playing for the Minnesota Duluth in the NCAA. Anderson was part of the 2018 championship winning team, and also had the honor of representing the United States as captain of the World Junior Championship team, taking home the Bronze medal.
In April 2018, Anderson signed his first professional contract - a three-year entry level deal with the Devils - committing a professional career after two years at the collegiate level.
Anderson, who plans to continue to get his degree in Psychology while turning pro, is a sponge for information. He's aware that the Devils organize their development camp to have a lesson at every turn, both on-and-off the ice, and he's absorbing it all.
The 19-year-old is currently attending his third Development Camp with the Devils, this time feeling more at home than ever before, which is very important to him. He's familiar with his surroundings, the coaching staff and other teammates, which allows Joey to be Joey.
A natural-born leader, Joey Anderson feels comfortable, vocal and eager to learn at each opportunity.
Maturing over the past year, Anderson is letting more of his personality shine through. In his first two years, he was still navigating his way through the development camp experience, sitting quietly and observing. Now, he knows how to manage the Development Camp routine, allowing him to but one of the more prominent members of the group.
