Craig Anderson (May 21, 1981 in Park Ridgemarker, Illinoismarker) is a professional ice hockey goalie who plays for the Colorado Avalanche of the National Hockey League.

Playing career

Craig Anderson was originally drafted by Calgary Flames in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, in the 3rd round 77th overall. However, because Calgary failed to sign him to a contract he was returned into the entry draft a few years later. In 2001, Craig Anderson was drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. He was chosen with the 73rd overall selection in the 3rd round. After two seasons as backup goalie in Chicago, he was traded to the Florida Panthers in 2006. Anderson has also played parts of five seasons in the AHL with the Norfolk Admirals (4) and the Rochester Americans (1).

During the 2007–08 season, Anderson set the NHL records for the most saves in a shutout (53) and most saves in consecutive shutouts (93). During the 2008–09 season, Anderson recorded 15 wins for the Panthers as they battled (but ultimately failed) to qualify for a playoff spot.

Anderson signed a two-year contract with the Colorado Avalanche on July 1, 2009. He won the starting job from Peter Budaj in training camp for the goalie position and started the 2009–10 season. Anderson became the second Americanmarker in Avalanche history to mind the net, the other being Philippe Sauve.

He began his career with the Avalanche on a positive note, recording a shutout in his second game, and was named the league's second star of the week twice in October. Eventually, he was also named the league's first star for the month of October. Craig went on to set a Quebec Nordiques/Colorado Avalanche franchise record on October 24th, 2009 when he started his 10th consecutive game as a goalie to begin the season, a game the Avs went on to win 5-4 against the Carolina Hurricanes at home. His marathon record of starts ended at 15.
