Jordan Gross (born May 9, 1995) is an American professional ice hockey defenseman who is currently playing for the Arizona Coyotes of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Gross played school hockey in Minnesota with Maple Grove High School before playing junior in the United States Hockey League (USHL) with the Green Bay Gamblers. Undrafted, Gross committed to collegiate hockey with the University of Notre Dame, beginning as a freshman in the 2014–15 season.

In his senior season with the Fighting Irish and although under-sized Gross developed into one of the top defenseman in the NCAA. In the 2017–18 season, Gross registered 10 goals and 30 points in 40 games, ranking third on Notre Dame in scoring and led all Fighting Irish defensemen in points. Gross helped the Fighting Irish advance to the Frozen Four championship game where he was named to the NCAA (Championship) All-Tournament Team and later the Big Ten Conference First All-Star Team.[1]

As a free agent, Gross attracted NHL interest, opting to sign a two-year, entry-level contract with the Arizona Coyotes on April 12, 2018.[2] He immediately joined the Coyotes' AHL affiliate, the Tucson Roadrunners, on an amateur try-out, making his professional debut in a solitary appearance and registering 2 assists to end the regular season, in a 6-3 victory over the San Diego Gulls on April 14, 2018.[3]

On December 22, 2019 Gross made his debut for the Coyotes against the Detroit Red Wings[4] and scored his first NHL point with an assist on the Coyotes' fifth goal.
