Josh Andersons brief conditioning stint in the AHL has come to an end. Now its time for him to show that he can continue his development this season despite missing the Blue Jackets training camp and preseason.

The 23-year-old, who is entering his second full NHL season, didnt participate in Columbus preparation for the 2017-18 campaign because he was still a restricted free agent. The two sides finally ended that on Oct. 2 by agreeing on a three-year, $5.55 million contract.

Anderson got into one AHL game during his conditioning stint and recorded a team-high seven shots along with a minus-two rating. The next step is for him to practice with the Blue Jackets on Monday, per the Columbus Dispatch.

It remains to be seen if Anderson will make his NHL season debut on Tuesday, but if he does then it could be Zac Dalpe who is taken out of the lineup.
