BOYD GORDON RUMORS & GOSSIP
A few days ago I posted the top 20 players by excess defensive zone starts in 2013/14. Leading the league was Boyd Gordon of the Edmonton Oilers who had 487 excess defensive zone starts (defensive zone - offensive zone). This gives him a well over 100 zone start lead over anyone else in the league. Boyd Gordon played the most defensive role in the NHL (at least by zone starts...

Edmonton’s roster right now holds only Ryan Nugent-Hopkins at first-line centre, and Boyd Gordon on the fourth-line.
Is general manager Craig MacTavish counting on newly minted draft pick Leon Draisaitl to play No. 2 centre in the NHL as an 18-year-old this fall? Or does the timing of this trade suggest that MacTavish has already landed...
The Edmonton Oilers added Boyd Gordon to their ever-growing pile of players who are done for the season.
Gordon, who has a minor shoulder issue, joins Jesse Joensuu (ankle), Ryan Jones (knee), Nail Yakupov (ankle), Andrew Ference (chest) and Luke Gazdic (shoulder) in the premature summer club.
Gordon hurt his shoulder early in Tuesday’s loss to Colorado, but never left the game...
The Edmonton Oilers will get veteran checking center Boyd Gordon back into the lineup when they take on the Canucks Friday in Vancouver, the club announced.
Gordon, 30, has missed the last six games with a shoulder injury suffered during a game against Columbus on Nov. 29. Prior to getting hurt he was having a solid campaign for the Oilers, scoring five goals and 11 points in 27...
Whenever Boyd Gordon sets up for a faceoff — he has already taken 493 draws for the Edmonton Oilers — Will Acton plays the keen observer.
He watches the veteran centre drop low to the ice, his legs splayed far apart, the execution as consistent as can be.
Gordon is not only the Oilers’ best faceoff man, he is fourth in the NHL with a win percentage of 58.6. Of the 289 draws...
Prior to arriving in Edmonton Boyd Gordon was perceived to be solely a bottom-six forward.
That’s all he’d ever been with the Washington Capitals and Phoenix Coyotes.
But out of necessity the Edmonton Oilers have been forced to move Gordon up in the lineup and so far the veteran centre has rewarded his coach’s faith in him.
“It’s not me he’s rewarding he’s rewarding...
David Moss and Boyd Gordon each had a goal and an assist as the Phoenix Coyotes stayed firmly in the playoff picture with a 3-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday.
Antoine Vermette also scored for the Coyotes, 5-1-2 in their last eight games. They sit in ninth place in the Western Conference, one point back of the idle Detroit Red Wings for the final playoff berth.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Shane Doan and Boyd Gordon scored two goals apiece and the Phoenix Coyotes returned from an 0-3 road trip to rout the Colorado Avalanche 6-1 on Monday.
The performances came the first time the Coyotes played at home since Doan's breakthrough hat trick on Jan. 7, the first time he had scored three times in a game in his 16-year NHL career. Gilbert Brule...
