Craig Anderson was originally drafted 77th overall in the 1999 NHL entry draft by the Calgary Flames. Anderson and the Flames couldn't come to a deal, so Anderson was available to be redrafted in 2001. Anderson was drafted by his hometown team, the Chicago Black Hawks. Anderson wouldn't find success in the Windy City as he went 12-26-6 over the course of three seasons with the Hawks. After a three year stint as a back-up with the Florida Panthers, Anderson won a starting job with the Colorado Avalanche, a team expected to be one of the worst in the NHL. With Anderson's help, the Avs finished 2nd in their division before bowing out in the 1st round of the play-offs. 2010-11. turned out to be the season many were expected the Avs to have the previous year. The Avs finished the season with the 2nd worst record in the NHL. Anderson played his way out of Colorado and late in the season, he was traded to the Ottawa Senators. After the trade, Anderson excelled and played some of his best hockey in his career. In 2011-12, Anderson saved his best for the play-offs, helping the Senators push the #1 seed New York Rangers to a 7 game series.
Mr. Anderson signed 3 of 3. c/o the Ottawa Senators. He also signed and returned the extra copy of the picture.
