Mustangs sign Anderson for 2nd season

by Mustangs Staff

The Ogden Mustangs have local, rookie phenom Ammon Anderson returning for the 2018-19 season.

Anderson started last season as a 16 year old. Expected to play more  of a depth and development role early on, he quickly shot his way up the  depth part and became a key player in the Mustangs’ lineup. By the end  of the season, he was getting second-line minutes, powerplay time and  played with the composure and consistency of a much more experienced  player.

Remarkably, Anderson still has four seasons of junior hockey eligibility ahead of him, including the season ahead.

“I’m looking forward to another season with the Mustangs,” Anderson  said. “I have high expectations for this team as the season progresses.”

Anderson was ninth in team scoring with 18 goals and 24 assists in  the past regular season. In the Thorne Cup Finals he had the first goal  of the week along with another goal and assist that week.

In 46 regular season games, Anderson had 12 multi-point games,  including a three-goal effort in Cheyenne. He’s the youngest player in  team history to every record three or more goals in a game.

At 5-feet-10-inches and 175 pounds (an inch taller and 10 pounds  heavier than last season), Anderson is a hard-working, fast-skating  playmaker. He officially calls Syracuse, Utah home.

The Ice Sheet in Ogden was where it all started for him, skating for  the Jr. Wildcats for his first two seasons of youth hockey. He then went  on to play for the Jr. Grizzlies and West Coast Renegades in Salt  Lake. Two seasons ago, he played for the Colorado Thunderbirds in the  T1EHL where he picked up 14 points in 18 games, before coming to the  Mustangs.
