Joey Anderson set to battle for roster spotAugust 12, 2019 | 03:08 PM
Joey Anderson will be on the bubble for a roster spot with the Devils going into training camp.
There isn't as much room on the team with Jack Hughes, Wayne Simmonds and Nikita Gusev set to join the fold. "Those are guys who are going to be on the team this year so those are less spots for guys to earn," Anderson said. "It kind of motivates you to do more this summer and come into camp as ready as possible and try and earn one of the few spots." He skated in 34 games with New Jersey last season and he recorded seven points. Anderson has been working on his skating and conditioning over the summer, but he knows he needs to contribute more to stick with the big club.
