The Flyers sent Boyd Gordon down to AHL Lehigh Valley on Saturday after he cleared waivers.
In 13 games with the Flyers this season the veteran pivot has posted just one point along with seven blocks. With 161 points in 706 career games, we'd let him lay on the wire even when he comes back. Sat, Jan 14, 2017 12:20:00 PM

Boyd Gordon cleared waivers on Saturday.

What comes next is likely that he'll get sent down to AHL Lehigh Valley, but that isn't guaranteed. He could still be traded, remain with the Flyers, or move to terminate his contract. We shall see.

Boyd Gordon has been put on waivers by the Philadelphia Flyers.

Gordon has a goal in 13 games this season. He's been very effective on the draw throughout his career and that might be enough to motivate some team to claim him.

Boyd Gordon will tag in for Travis Konecny against the Sharks on Friday.

This will be Gordon's second game over the last eight, including tonight. The veteran pivot has a goal and not much else to his credit in 10 games so far this season.

Boyd Gordon and Nick Schultz will be scratched against the Devils on Thursday night.

We're now three weeks through December and Gordon has played just 10 games played, and Schultz is stuck at nine. Neither have been felled by injury or ailment, so suffice it to say that neither have much of a role with the team at this point.

Boyd Gordon will tag in for Taylor Leier against the Stars on Saturday.

Through eight games thus far the veteran center has just a point with little else to show for his efforts, unfortunately.

Philadelphia has activated Boyd Gordon (upper body) from the injured list.

Gordon hasn't been in the lineup since Oct. 29 and he has one goal in eight games this campaign. He doesn't have any fantasy value, but he can kill penalties and win faceoffs.

Boyd Gordon (upper body) took part in a full practice Saturday.

Gordon is a bottom-two center who has little fantasy value but is a valued hockey player. He is on long-term injured reserve and has not played in over four weeks. He could return at any time but shouldn't be on your roster as he has only one goal in eight games.

Boyd Gordon (upper body) has been moved to injured reserve by Philadelphia.

The Flyers made the move in order to activate Michael Raffl. Gordon hasn't played since Oct. 29 due to an upper-body ailment.

Boyd Gordon is dealing with an upper-body injury.

The Flyers announced that Gordon will be sidelined for at least a week as a result. He has a goal in eight games this season.

Boyd Gordon should make a big difference to the Flyers penalty killing.

Gordon is a PK specialist and is also quite good on the draw, so this should help the Flyers who were 20th overall last season while shorthanded. "I've done it my whole career," Gordon said. "Some years have been better than others, but it's something I've always taken pride in. Special teams are huge now." The move to sign Gordon should also help Claude Giroux as he won't be required to do as much penalty killing work as in the past. Gordon has limited fantasy value but will chip in with the occasional goal.

Boyd Gordon was part of an on-ice collision on Tuesday and had to go to the Flyers' locker room for facial stitches.

This is just an FYI as it sounds like this shouldn't disrupt his ability to participate in the Flyers' training camp. He inked a one-year, $950,000 deal with Philadelphia in July.
Tue, Sep 13, 2016 03:16:00 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed Boyd Gordon to a one-year contract worth $950K.

Gordon will line up as the Flyers fourth line center. He had two goals and four points in 67 games with Arizona last season, so his fantasy value is negligible.
Fri, Jul 1, 2016 02:21:00 PM

Boyd Gordon is expected to test free agency in July.

The Coyotes have only confirmed that they want to sign one of their pending unrestricted free agents and that is Shane Doan. Arizona wants to get younger, but they are open to talk if the veterans want to stay.
Tue, Jun 14, 2016 04:03:00 PM

Boyd Gordon collected his second goal of the season during Friday's 4-1 win over the Flames.

Gordon is now up to a massive two goals and four points across 51 games this season. He may not compete for the scoring title, but you don't hear his teammates complaining tonight.
