Boyd Gordon knows what to expect in his return to the Arizona Coyotes.
"I know what (coach Dave Tippett) expects from me, and I think playing two seasons there -- I think maybe the transition's easier than going to a different team and different coaching and all that kind of stuff," Gordon said. "Hopefully the transition is maybe a little bit smoother than going somewhere else." Gordon tallied six goals and 13 points in 68 games last season while ranking 11th (55.9%) in face-off proficiency.

The Edmonton Oilers have traded center Boyd Gordon to the Arizona Coyotes for winger Lauri Korpikoski.

While the salaries even out at $3M for each player's expiring contract, the Coyotes inch ever-closer to the cap floor by taking on an extra half-million dollars in cap space. "Boyd is an excellent defensive center who is one of the league's best in the face-off circle," Coyotes GM Don Maloney said. "He has a great work ethic and will add experience and leadership to our dressing room. We are excited to have him back." Gordon recorded 13 points in 68 games for Edmonton last season while ranking 11th best league-wide with a 55.9 face-off winning percentage.
Jun 30 - 7:47 PM

Boyd Gordon (back) will remain on the sidelines for Monday's tilt with the Avalanche.

Gordon will miss his third straight game Monday night but is getting closer to a return. The hope is for him to be back on the ice for Wednesday's game versus the Anaheim Ducks. He has little to no fantasy value with six goals and seven assists in 68 games this season. Matt Hendricks will also be held out of Monday's game due to a back injury.
Mar 30 - 6:32 PM

Boyd Gordon (back) could be ready to go on Sunday.

Gordon has been out since Tuesday as he missed practice that day. The bottom six forward has only six goals and 13 points in 68 games this season. He has little fantasy value.
Mar 28 - 8:24 AM

Boyd Gordon (back) will be sidelined Wednesday night against the Avalanche.

Gordon was unable to practice Tuesday or Wednesday and will not be able to suit up for Wednesday night's game. On the season he has six goals and seven assists with a minus five rating in 68 games played. Consider him day-to-day for now as he should return fairly soon. Luke Gazdic will take his spot Wednesday night.
Mar 25 - 6:22 PM

Boyd Gordon (back) wasn't on the ice Tuesday morning.

Gordon might still be available for Wednesday's contest though. He has six goals and 13 points in 68 contests this season.
Mar 24 - 3:45 PM

Boyd Gordon recorded an assist in a 5-2 loss to Detroit on Monday.

Gordon has six goals and 12 points in 62 contests in 2014-15. Among Oilers forwards, he leads the pack with 77 blocked shots, but when it comes to offensive production, he's not expected to ever be prolific.
Mar 10 - 11:07 AM

Boyd Gordon scored the lone goal for the Oilers in a 2-1 loss to the Wild on Tuesday.

It was Gordon's sixth of the year and second point in three games. He isn't a fantasy option in any format but was the only source of offense for the Oiler who had their chances in this game but got foiled by former teammate Devan Dubnyk. Just another night at the office for the Oilers this season.
Jan 28 - 12:49 AM

Boyd Gordon returned to action on Thursday December 18.

Gordon was back in the fold after sitting out five contests with a back injury. He scored a goal and won five of his nine faceoffs in a 4-3 loss to San Jose. Gordon has five markers and eight points in 28 games this year.

Boyd Gordon (back) did not skate on Friday.

The faceoff specialist obviously sat out Friday's contest against the Ducks as he was injured on Wednesday. Consider him day-to-day for now. Gordon has seven points in 27 games and is 10th overall in faceoffs at 56.1 percent as he has won 302 of 538 draws.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 08:06:00 AM

Boyd Gordon will continue to be sidelined due to a back injury Wednesday night.

Gordon will be out of the lineup once again versus the Ducks. He has seven points in 27 games on the season and is considered day-to-day. Jesse Joensuu and Brandon Davidson are expected to be the healthy scratches for the Oilers but Edmonton coach, Dallas Eakins will make his final lineup after the pre-game warmups. If Davidson were to suit up, it would be his first NHL game.

Boyd Gordon is dealing with a back injury.

Fortunately Matt Hendricks (leg) is now available, so the Oilers will insert him into the lineup to help fill the void. Gordon has four goals and seven points in 27 games in 2014-15.
Tue, Dec 9, 2014 04:16:00 PM

Boyd Gordon missed practice on Saturday with an undisclosed reason.

Gordon has four goals and seven points in 2 games with a minus-three rating which is not bad on a defensively poor Edmonton squad. He has little fantasy value in most pools so this should not affect you unless you play the face off category.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 07:44:00 AM

Boyd Gordon scored a goal in Edmonton's 3-2 loss to the Dallas Stars.
