2009-10: Coda Gordon skated for the Edge School Gold midget AA team in Calgary. He was selected to play in the RAMHL all-star game.
2010-11: Gordon made his WHL debut, appearing in one game with Swift Current, and was the leading goal scorer for the Edge School prep team. He was scoreless with no penalties in his only game with the Broncos. In 66 games for Edge School, Gordon scored 53 goals with 59 assists and had 44 penalty minutes. The Edge School captured the Midwest Prep League and Canada Sport School Hockey league championships.
2011-12: Gordon was the second-leading scorer for Swift Current as a rookie. Playing on a line with leading scorer Taylor Vause and Jets' prospect Adam Lowry, Gordon scored 30 goals with 23 assists and was plus-two with 12 penalty minutes. The Broncos finished fifth in the East Division; missing the WHL Playoffs. Gordon was invited to the NHL Draft Combine and ranked 61st amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting's final rankings prior to the 2012 NHL Draft.
Gordon has solid hockey sense, poise with the puck and is an excellent finisher who makes the most out of his opportunities. The stocky winger battles hard in the corners and getting to front of the opposition's net. The Flames' sixth rounder needs to improve his four-step acceleration, stride width, and push extension to become a stronger skater. If Gordon gains more weight and strength while learning to play with a chip on his shoulder then the natural goal scorer will be extremely difficult to contain in front of the net.
Gordon will play his second year with the Swift Current Broncos for the 2012-13 season. He's not a flashy player but he should have a breakout year offensively now that Flames' prospect has adjusted to the level of play in the WHL. Calgary's fans might be pleasantly surprised by the sixth rounder's high point totals by the end of this year.
