"The Other" Gordon

While we're in the middle of recapping current Caps' 2007-08 seasons, here's a look at future Cap Andrew Gordon's campaign, a first year in professional hockey which included a short (but successful) stint in the ECHL that got him on track for a strong finish in Hershey.

Gordon ended the AHL season third on the Bears in scoring with 16 goals and 35 assists in 58 games (the 35 assists tied him for the second-most on the team) and had a plus-22 rating, tops among Hershey forwards. He was tied for fourth among all AHL rookies in scoring and was named AHL Player of the Week back in early February.

Perhaps before long Boyd will be "the other" Gordon.

But you have to say "The Wrong Gordon" a'la Wallace and Gromit in "The Wrong Trousers."

(the backstory, that is a Hershey Bears A. Gordon jersey in B.Gordon's stall during Hockey and Heels. We thought we were HILARIOUS.)

I've liked Andrew Gordon ever since the Caps drafted him. On Frozen Blog's been keeping tabs on his new pro career ever since McPhee told 'em that he actually was a "dark horse" to make the roster this past season. The organization is really high on him. People keep talking about Bouchard, but I honestly think Andrew will be here first.
