Assistant Coach Dave Lewis on Calder: Calder Anderson is one of the hardest working and most competitive kids I have ever worked with. Over the last 4 years he has continually worked at improving his skating and puck skills and combined with his exceptional hockey IQ, he has become an exceptional hockey player. He is a natural born leader who supports his teammates and leads by example. He has been a treat to work with. He’s a great player but even a better person. I fully expect Calder to play at the higher levels of hockey in the future.
