Anders Myrvold
Anders Myrvold
Defenseman
Number: 22
Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 178
Shoots: Left
Born: Aug 12, 1975
Birthplace: Lorenskog, Norway
Acquired: Signed as a free agent by Detroit on September 1, 2003.
Drafted: QUE / 1993 NHL Entry Draft
Round: 5th (127th overall)
Defenseman Anders Myrvold was selected by the Quebec Nordiques in the 1993 NHL entry draft while playing for Farjestads of the Swedish Elite League. He was taken in the fifth round, 127th overall.

The Nordiques tried to lure Myrvold to play junior hockey in North America, but he opted to remain in Norway for another season. In 1994-95 he was persuaded to make the move to get better accustomed to the different style of play. With one year of junior eligibility remaining, Myrvold joined the Laval Titan of the QMJHL. Perhaps the biggest surprise was his aggressive play. He quickly proved he was not going to be pushed around and accumulated 173 minutes in penalties to go along with his 64 points in as many games.

By 1995-96 the Nordiques had moved to Colorado and were renamed the Avalanche. It was felt Myrvold was not ready to assume a full-time roster spot with the team despite an impressive showing in training camp. He did, however, play four games with the Avs that season, picking up one assist. The team went on to win the Stanley Cup that year, which made cracking the lineup even tougher for Myrvold going in to the following season. In November, 1996 he was traded to the Boston Bruins but after only nine games was to their AHL affiliate in Providence. He spent the better part of two years in Providence, but rather than toil in the minors, he decided to return to the Swedish League.

In the summer of 2000, he was lured back to the NHL by the New York Islanders, who signed him as a free-agent, but his tenure there lasted a mere 12 games with the better part of his season spent in the AHL with Springfield. After playing in Switzerland for a season, Myrvold signed with the Florida Panthers in the summer of 2002. Although property of the Panthers, Myrvold remained in Europe, opting to play in Germany. In the summer of 2003, the Detroit Red Wings signed him and managed to persuade him to join their AHL affiliate in Grand Rapids, while seeing limited action with the parent club.

On the international stage, Myrvold reprsented his homeland at the World Junior Championships (1993-1995), the World Championships (1994, 1999 and 2002).
