I've heard he's a pretty good skater, and brings energy. Could be an effective 4th liner or 13th forward.

Hes listed as 6'4'' 195lbs... need to see him play more to get a good read on what kind of player he is. Seems like a good pick up though. Erixon wasnt doing much.

What was this all about? Another doosie trade today. He's listed a 6'0, 194lbs on the ANA website. So he's not big, but he has wheels and can kill penalties. Hits like Weise - nothing special, but maybe needed a change of scenery?

Young people grow. Maybe he grew. Generally the stats on websites are the players information from physical testing at training camp, and it doesn't change throughout the season, where obviously the actual player does (case in point: Higgins losing weight while sick).

I'm having trouble believing that a 26-year old man gained 4 inches in height over the course of the season.

he's not really a prospect, at age 26... and yeah, there's no way anyone could mistake him for 6'4", maybe Nuck the Rest was thinking about Kassian? but Kassian is 220 lbs, not 195.

he'll be a depth 4th liner, regardless... maybe with some time on the 3rd.

The Canucks press release had him incorrectly at 6'4" (likely thinking of Kassian) when he's listed at 5'11" on the AHL website and 6'0" everywhere else.

Still a chance he impresses but likely a great AHL'er but fringe NHL'er.

Don't know much about him other than when he ripped it up with Hershey in the playoffs a couple years ago.

Wolves could win the Calder if the Canucks don't take all their players.

^ based on the video and comparing the height of him and Marcus Johansson he has to be 6 ft.

he'll be a decent penalty killer, and you should really post more stats than that. he's an AHL star for life, doubt he'll get much chances in top 6 even with injuries

So will he fill in incase of injuries in the playoffs? Other than that I don't see him taking Reinprecht's playoff spot.
  • 0

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

If anything he'll probably fill in for Reinprecht on the Wolves once the Canucks call up Reinprecht for the playoffs. It is a good move to keep the farm team competitive.

He doesn't look 6.4 to me.

Maybe he can resurrect his potential but his AHL numbers haven't been translating to NHL numbers. Skeptical.

Purely an AHL move - Vancouver wanted to trade away Nathan Longre (center), who is Chicago Wolves property, in order to get Sami Pahlsson. So the Wolves GM asked Vancouver to go out and get them Andrew Gordon who he had been trying to get for a while now. So Gillis used Erixon to get Gordon (center) and traded away Longpre (not sure if he ended up being a part of the Pahlsson deal or separate).

This was requested by our AHL affiliate and was done specifically for them, and has nothing to do with us.

This deal and the Longpre deal are explained in this interview with the Wolves GM.


Basically, Columbus wanted Longpre as part of the Pahlsson deal, but the Longpre was not Canucks property. His deal was an AHL one, with the Wolves. The Wolves had wanted Gordon for some time, so, in exchange for trading Longpre in to the Columbus system, the Canucks acquired Gordon for the Wolves. Actually a very interesting video.

I think the fact that the Canucks included their AHL GM in the trade deadline process (something that was new to this GM), shows that they treat people the right way. On a similar note, I read an interview with Craig Heisinger, former Manitoba Moose GM, that the Canucks included him in the process when they re-signed Alex Burrows to his 4 yr deal a few years ago. Heisinger was the guy who discovered Burrows, and he said he appreciated the gesture on the part of the Canucks. It sounds like the Canucks are trying to get a good name for their organization not only amongst players, but amongst management types too.

He was once a legit prospect, but never panned out. At 26, he's not going to challenge spots on the Canucks given the depth we have in both veterans and up and coming prospects. I don't think he's 6'4... at least from watching him. He's okay at everything but don't see him being more than a good to very good AHLer.

I gotta say, Gordon's been a real surprise, great pickup for the farm, and might be able to turn that into a 4th line regular with PK time. the kid is deadly shorthanded.
