The man we have called “Power Horse” since he first put on a Canadiens jersey last season is on the cusp of a milestone in goals. Anderson only needs one more to reach triple digits in 100 career goals.

Anderson finished with 17 goals last season in 52 games, and as mentioned earlier, also sits at 17 this season in 59 games.

Anderson’s most notable seasons with the Columbus Blue Jackets were when he scored 17, 19 and 27 goals. With Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield being the team’s top dynamic duo, there’s no reason Anderson can’t become a perrnial 20 goal scorer if paired with the perfect centerman.

Meanwhile, let’s not forget about everyone’s favorite waiver pickup Paul Byron. He currently stands at 98 career goals so only 2 is needed in his case. Byron currently has 4 goals and 3 assists for 7 points in 23 games this season.

Having both acheive the triple digit milestone would be yet another breath of fresh air for this team.

Let’s celebrate what we can out of this season.
