Seriously, who doesn't know a Craig Anderson?
I know a Craig Anderson. You know a Craig Anderson. I'm pretty sure everyone in America knows a Craig Anderson. In the spirit of PlayerWives.com, I can say that for the guy I know - Craig Anderson's wife is way cooler than him.
But you're not here to know about the common Craig Anderson. You're here to know about the Ottawa Senators' goalie Craig Anderson. Hockey playing Craig Anderson's wife Nicholle Anderson has been in the picture since 2010, and he also appears to have done quite well for himself. Craig and Nicholle were married in the summer of 2010, and had their first child together, son Jake, in the summer of 2011. Anderson was traded to Ottawa late in the 2011 season before signing a four year extension to have some stability in his hockey life.
Following the 2011 season, many speculated that the Illinois native Anderson would be contacted by Team USA to play in the World Championships. With their son on the way, Anderson shot down that possibility before even being asked, telling the Toronto Sun,
"They haven't contacted me directly, but my agent and I have talked about it, and we just decided that I've been away from my wife too long these last couple of months here, we're expecting a baby in July, and I think family is important. Not getting to see her for the 21- or 28-day tournament, whatever it is, could be tough on the family life. If she wasn't pregnant and I hadn't been away from her for a couple of months, I think it might be a different story."
The Anderson's split their time between Ottawa and Florida (where Nicholle is from) where they live in the offseason.
