The Montreal Canadiens have received inconsistencies from their stars this season, and one name that's been a major letdown: Josh Anderson.

The 29 year-old signed a hefty seven-year, $5.5 million deal, and he's putting up some seriously disappointing numbers. We're talking eight goals and a measly 18 points in 63 games. If he keeps going at this rate, he'll barely hit doubledigits in goals by season's end.
It's frustrating trying to figure out what's up with number 17. And that's what's primarily concerning – the mystery behind his slump.

Josh Anderson: A Major Disappointment for the Montreal Canadiens

In the hockey world, if you're not delivering, it can mess with your head big time. It's a pressure-cooker and in response to that, teams are stepping up their game in terms of mental support for players, which is great to see. Just look at Cayden Primeau and Joel Armia. They've been working with a mental performance coach, and the results are pretty impressive.
Primeau's starting to live up to the hype after his college heroics, and Armia's playing some of his most consistent hockey since his standout season back in 2020.
The Habs offer their players all sorts of resources to help them out. Unfortunately, Anderson's not interested. Yeah, Tony Marinaro spoke BPM Sports, revealing that despite his struggles, Anderson turned down support from the team.
And that speaks volumes about his attitude and commitment, doesn't it? If he doesn't turn things around next season, he could be in some hot water with the Canadiens. Tough situation to be in, for sure.
