A trade involving Josh Anderson? The rumour that the New Jersey Devils are interested has now been confirmed.

Josh Anderson has been the subject of trade rumors for quite some time now. Despite his inconsistent offensive production, Anderson is very effective in his role, and therefore very much in demand.

Arpon Basu of The Athletic confirmed a rumor that circulated last year, to the effect that the New Jersey Devils were very interested in acquiring Josh Anderson.

"I know the New Jersey Devils showed interest in Anderson last season, and I don't know if that's changed with the acquisition of Timo Meier, but they can serve as an example of how a trade involving Josh Anderson could work."

As my colleague William Nadeau of Habs and NHL mentions, the 2021 series is a good example of Josh Anderson's contribution to a team. The Maple Leafs created a lot of turnovers because they were tired of getting hit by the Anderson train.


With the salary cap set to rise significantly next year, his contract of 5.5 million per year until 2027 becomes much more attractive to many teams, which wasn't the case in recent years.
