Playing career[edit | edit source]
Gordon began his career with the Notre Dame Hounds of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. In 2004, he was drafted by the Washington Capitals (7th round, 197th overall). However, instead of immediately joining the Capitals, he played for three years with the St. Cloud State Huskies in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
Gordon spent his first professional season (2007–08) with the American Hockey League's Hershey Bears and the ECHL's South Carolina Stingrays, though he spent most of the year with Hershey. The next year, he scored twenty goals with Hershey and helped them win the Calder Cup. He also made his NHL debut with the Capitals, playing in one game for them. In 2009-10, he had an even better year, scoring thirty-seven goals, and the Bears won the Calder Cup for the second year in a row. He also played in two games for the Capitals.
In the 2010-11 season Gordon made it to final cuts of the Capitals training camp but was reassigned to Hershey along with Jay Beagle and Mathieu Perreault. Gordon would play in Hershey until mid-December when he would be called-up for a game against the New York Rangers.
On the 21st of December 2010, Gordon scored his first NHL goal for the Capitals against Martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils. After scoring, Gordon kissed his linemate Marcus Johansson on the cheek as they sat on the bench.
He would later be sent back down to Hershey and would play until being recalled once again in January when Capitals winger Eric Fehr got hurt.
On July 2, 2011, he was signed by the Ducks to a 2 year deal.
