Glenn Anderson Special Guest Hockey Coach 

Glenn Anderson continues his tradition of giving back, especially to children, during the offseason. The Glenn Anderson Stanley Cup Week Camp at the North American Hockey School in Stamford, Connecticut brought out everyone's love of competition and team sports. The SoNo Ice House ice rink may as well have been Olympic level, because everyone involved gave it their all.

"You've got to love that competition," Anderson said later while signing autographs. "Those kids were good with one-on-one battles. When you practice four hours a day with a group, things are going to get intense." 

Named to the National Hockey League Hall of Fame a few years back, Glenn stays active with charity events, individual camps and Fall Of Famer tours.

January 16th, 2009 (Edmonton, AB) - Hundreds of loyal Glenn Anderson fans packed City Hall today to celebrate his impressive NHL career, contribution to hockey in Edmonton and commitment to Oil Country. The ceremony was highlighted by a $10,000 donation made by the Rexall Family of Pharmacies in Glenn Anderson's name to support the Cross Cancer Institute.

"Glenn Anderson's dedication to this community should be saluted in equal measure to his accomplishments on the ice," said Michael Bobroff, VP of Marketing, Rexall Family of Pharmacies.  glenn anderson honored at edmonton city hall

Anderson was joined today by his former teammates Kevin Lowe, Jari Kurri, Ron Lowe, Dave Hunter, Dave Semenko and Ken Linseman who were on hand to celebrate and acknowledge his milestone. "Andy, we are all proud of you and know how deserving you are to have your jersey raised to the rafters," said Kevin Lowe, President, Hockey Operations. "You are going down in Edmonton history."

Glenn Anderson's #9 jersey will be the seventh raised to the rafters at Rexall Place at Sunday's pre-game ceremony. Anderson played 16 NHL seasons, celebrated six Stanley Cup victories, played in four NHL All-Star Games and still holds the Oilers franchise record of 126 powerplay goals. He was one of the great players to have worn the Oilers jersey and that was evident today when fans across Oil Country gathered in his honour.

"I am so proud and privileged to be here," said Anderson. "It's because of you the fans and all of your support, we were able win five Stanley Cups here in Edmonton."

A number of Anderson's former teammates, including fellow Oilers jersey retirees Al Hamilton, Wayne Gretzky, Grant Fuhr, Paul Coffey, Jari Kurri and Mark Messier will be standing at his side during Sunday night's ceremony.

Anderson's Retirement Ceremony will take place at 6:00pm. The game is sold out; however fans can catch the game, ceremony and special features with Oilers greats on Molson Canadian Oilers Pay Per View beginning at 5:45pm.
