He did decently for Spartak Moskva in his first run overseas scoring 11 goals and 9 assists, then took it up a notch splitting 2014/2015 with Medvescak Zagreb and Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk striking for 15 goals and 20 assists in 63 games.
At 34 years old he shows little signs of slowing down.

Minor league feel good story of the year (so far): undrafted 6th year right wing Matt Anderson(29) gets his first recall with New Jersey Devils and plays in his NHL debut vs. Boston Bruins, a 2-1 shootout loss at 30-years old.
He skated 6:57 of ice time with no other real stats, which isn’t always a bad thing.
In 2011, he scored his first big league deal, signing for one-year, two way with New Jersey.
He’s always been considered a team leader and plays that style of game, consistent, hard-working.
And they would know: 1995.
Undrafted, 5th year pro Matt Anderson(29) is just starting to get on folks radar.
He posted career highs all around (76 games, 23 goals and 32 assists) and appeared in the All-Star game.
He re-signed for 2011/2012 and it’s very possible if New Jersey suffers like they did last season he could earn himself a look.
4th year, undrafted Albany Devils‘ center Matt Anderson(29) has won a Calder Cup championship in 2008 with Chicago Wolves, but as far as I can tell has been flying so far under the radar that I thought he was a rookie or a 2nd year player.
In the 2010/2011 season he definitely put up some numbers (23 goals, 33 assists) that were first on his team for the year and earned him a spot on the Eastern Conference roster at the AHL All Star game.
I’m thinking he could even potentially land him a 2-way NHL contract next season.
3rd year forward (spent the first two with Chicago Wolves) Matt Anderson(29) is congratulated by teammates for being the hero in the Albany Devils 3-2 shootout victory vs. Worcester Sharks on 11/5 at the DCU Center.
Not only did he get the only tally of the shootout in the final round but he scored the game-tying marker with less than a minute left in regulation.
