An Anoka native, Anderson has served in a similar position at Rensselaer (N.Y.) for the last five seasons. He also spent three years fulfilling those duties at Notre Dame.
His MSU responsibilities will include video coordination, including breaking down game film and prep and pre-scouting of upcoming opponents; team travel coordination; community relations; and academic work.
"We're extremely pleased to have someone with Kevin's background and experience join our staff," Mavericks coach Mike Hastings said in a press release. "We also liked the fact that he's from the area and has worked at programs with strong college hockey cultures."
The St. Cloud State graduate's resume also includes work at SCSU as a volunteer assistant coach. Following his time at Notre Dame, Anderson spent time at Hamline University where he was a graduate student and men's hockey assistant coach. He also has nine years of experience with the Minnesota Hockey Camps as an on-ice and off-ice clinician and was a junior varsity coach at Prior Lake High School for one season.
Anderson replaces Garrett Lind, who spent three years in that position, including last season in a full-time capacity.
