Although Anderson played parts of the 1995-95 and 1995-96 seasons with the Blues and the Oilers, he did not play much in the NHL after his time with the Rangers, playing only another 68 regular season and 17 playoff games split over those two seasons. He was also, briefly, a Vancouver Canuck, but never played with them as upon signing with them in January 1996 he had to clear waivers, and the Oilers claimed him. (At the time, it was assumed this was long-awaited revenge for the Canucks having claimed Colin Campbell from waivers off the Oilers in the early 1980s. Then-GM Glen Sather is reputed to have never forgotten that incident, as he felt that the Canucks had agreed to not claim Campbell.)

Post Career

Although Glenn Anderson was expected to be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame (HHOF), he has not been entered as of 2005. Many supporters expect that his statistics, particularily in the playoffs, would merit a place in the HHOF, however, his retirement has been clouded by failure to pay child support. Another contemporary of Anderson who has also never been inducted is Dino Cicarelli.
