A lethal offensive threat with a gritty 200 foot game, Brighton Anderson is a Southern Ontario, Canadian farm kid who has been a standout player in elite rinks in both Canada and the USA since the age of 7. Anderson, who started fill contact hitting  at age 6 in AAA Box Lacrosse, Anderson uses his size to battle hard in the dirty areas. Best described as a Travis Konecny type of player, Anderson possesses the ability to carry the play, a high level of patience with the puck, high end skating and edgework, elite evasive puck skills, and a quick, accurate and lethal shot. Anderson has a natural scoring touch, and is able to take the puck from end to end if the lanes are open, and will walk any defeseman who tries to stop him. Anderson has high end hockey and academic IQ, and sees the ice well, key skills for making controlled zone entries, and pickpocketing through and around the most elite of defensive units. Anderson is the top goal scorer on his AAA team every season, and recorded the most assists in the Alliance, landing him the 2021-22 MVP award. Anderson, who has played under a pair of retired professional hockey players had been in AAA hockey since he was 7, playing against elite teams from Russia, Czechia, USA, and Canada. His coach, Tim Verbeek, has described him as "a very coachable and capable player who is a leader on his team, and who puts his team first. We lean on him often." On the ice, Anderson is a feisty, fierce, and reliable player, while being a very likeable kid off the ice. Being a country boy, Anderson has developed a high end work ethic, and has learned to be resourceful in creating his own drills and finding ways to grow as an athlete. Expect to see Anderson next at the PSI All-Star Challenge, where he will be representing Team Canada Red, using his high end skills to help his team.
