John Anderson officially came back to Chicago today. The Wolves introduced him at a press conference at Harry Caray's downtown today. He's a five-time AHL champion and the Chicago Wolves all-time winningest head coach. John Anderson returns to the Chicago Wolves with four years of NHL experience, leading the Atlanta Thrashers from 2008-10. He most recently served as an asst. with the Phoenix Coyotes from 2011-13
