Michael Anderson has been taking on new roles in his second year with the Golden Rockets.

So far this season, Anderson has continued his solid play for the team.

“It is going pretty good. We have a good team and even though we had a couple of stumbles we are now picking things up,” he said.

As for his role with the Rockets, Anderson is trying to play well and help other players develop.

“I think I am trying to be more of a leader this year. As a second year guy I am trying to show some of the younger kids the ropes,” he said.

Trying to be a consistent leader at both ends of the ice is something Anderson has tried to improve for this year.

“I am feeling pretty good.  I have already broke my last season point total. I am hoping to score some more and keep the points going,” he said. “I have worked a lot on puck and stick handling over the summer. I wanted to get my hands better and worked on my shooting as well to get the point total up.”

The Rockets have had some big wins as of late and Anderson feels the strong play is due to the team coming together.

“We have a great core group of guys. We also have a good group of rookies who have come up and we have been coming together as a team,” Anderson said.

As for the rest of the season, Anderson explained he would like to score at least 20 points and take a good long playoff run.

“Competing every game is something our coach wants us to do. We have to compete hard every night and I think we have been and that is leading us to our success,” he said.
