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.

Just another night at the office for the Oilers this season. Jan 28 - 12:49 AM

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.

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 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.

It was Gordon's first goal of the season. He's never done much offensively and consequently shouldn't be on your radar if you're in a standard league.

Boyd Gordon was caught off guard when he was given credit for Edmonton's shorthanded goal on Sunday.

The goal was the result of Patrick Kane accidentally scoring on his own net in an attempt to pass the puck back to the puck while Chicago's goalie was pulled due to a delayed penalty call. Gordon was on the bench when Kane scored, but he was determined to be the last Oilers' player to have possession of the puck. "I didn't hear them announce it. I wasn't paying attention, then Hemmer (Ales Hemsky) said 'hey, they gave the goal to you.' It still doesn't make any sense," said Gordon. "I thought they screwed it up and they were going to give it to (Mark) Arcobello. I also thought Marty (Marincin) might have touched it." Nevertheless it was Gordon's eighth marker of 2013-14.

Boyd Gordon was credited with a shorthanded goal on Sunday.

The Oilers were shorthanded when Devan Dubnyk slashed Andrew Shaw in the second period. The Blackhawks were in possession of the puck and pulled the goalie for an extra attacker. Patrick Kane then passed the puck back to the point, except there was no one there and the puck traveled 200 feet into the empty cage. Gordon was credited with the goal, his eighth of the season tying a career high, and first shorthanded goal of the season.
