Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Murray Anderson
A top prospect from the Western league, Anderson was drafted 44th overall by Montreal in 1969 during his three-year stay with the Flin Flon Bombers. He failed to impress at Montreal's training camp in 1971 and as a result spent the next four years in the minors.

Anderson sold outright to Minnesota in 1973, but it wasn't until the lowly Washington Capitals entered the league that he was given a chance to play in the NHL after the team claimed him in the Expansion Draft of 1974.

In 1974-75, he played 40 games and was a -40, not a good statistic for a defensive defenceman. He played half that season and parts of two more in the minors before retiring.
