A fan favorite at the Boston Garden and one of coach Don Cherry's most admired players, Anderson's brief career with the Bruins was haltingly positive before injuries got the better of him.

Anderson was drafted by Detroit in 1971 during his collegiate career at the University of North Dakota, and after graduating in 1973 he represented the U.S. at the 1973 World Championships (the country was in B pool at the time) and then joined the London Lions, Detroit's unique European farm team that played out of Wembley Arena in England.

He played the first part of 1974-75 with Detroit, but after an unimpressive start was acquired by Boston from Detroit with Hank Nowak for Walt McKechnie and a draft choice. But the following season was almost a total write-off for Anderson. After just five games, the pain from calcium deposits in his left thigh was too great to play, and he missed the rest of the season. After an operation and extensive rehab he returned to Boston for 1976-77, but spent half a season and all of 1977-78 in the minors before retiring.
