Meran’s top scorer surprises with his move

Last season, Calder Anderson shot the Alps Hockey League to pieces. It is understandable that the HC Meran striker aroused interest. The 22-year-old's move is still surprising.

81 points in 44 games – these are impressive numbers. With this ratio, Calder Anderson became the top scorer (and MVP) of the Alps Hockey League last season. It quickly became clear that the 22-year-old Canadian would not be able to stay with his club Meran. Now his move is complete: Anderson will now play in the third German league for the Heilbronner Falken.

A transfer destination that comes as quite a surprise. Anderson was initially linked with a return to his Canadian homeland, then rumors arose that the North American would end up in the Swiss second division. It was not necessarily to be expected that he would end up in the German top division.

A South Tyrolean waits for Anderson

"Calder has a very strong shot and can score goals from virtually anywhere. He was one of the best players in the AlpsHL last season - and he's only 21 years old. We're very happy that we can fill our first quota spot with him," says Martin Jiranek, the Falken's sporting director, enthusiastically. At the Falken, Anderson will meet a native of Eppan: Jan Pavlu has been lacing up his skates for the German top division team since last season.
