The Ogden Mustangs have signed Ammon Anderson for the 2017-18 season.
Anderson, born is 2001, will be the first player born after the turn of the century to skate for the Mustangs. The Mustangs have a handful of 1999-born players, but Anderson is the first who’s born in 2000 or later.
“I’m very thankful for the opportunity to play for this great organization,” Anderson said. “I’ve got high expectations for the season and am ready to work hard.”
The Mustangs historically have only signed a handful of 16 year olds. Anderson joins the likes of Schuyler Seyfert and Harry Gulliver before him.
Anderson has five seasons of junior hockey eligibility ahead of him. At 5-feet-9-inches and 162 pounds, he’s a hard-working playmaker. He officially calls Syracuse, Utah home and will be returning to the rink where it all started for him, skating for the Jr. Wildcats in Ogden for his first two seasons. He then went on to play for the Jr. Grizzlies and West Coast Renegades in Salt Lake. Last season, he played for the Colorado Thunderbirds in the T1EHL where he picked up 14 points in 18 games.
