History

2003-04: Gendur made his Junior A debut with the Cowichan Valley Capitals, playing 17 games and compiling 11 points.

2004-05: Gendur transitioned to the WHL and joined the Prince George Cougars.  He appeared in 60 games but registered just eight points.

2005-06: Plagued by injuries, Gendur got into only 19 games, scoring just three points. 

2006-07: After seven points in 13 games with PG, Gendur was dealt to the Everett Silvertips.  He really picked up his game in Everett, tallying 42 points in 48 games, by far his most productive stint of his entire major junior career.  He was a surprise draft pick by the Canucks on Draft Day.

2007-08: A true breakout year for Gendur who scored 29 goals and 84 total points in just 60 games with the Silvertips this season, outscoring highly touted younger prospects like Zach Hamill and Kyle Beach.

Talent Analysis
Gendur has always had very good speed but prior to his trade to Everett had been unable to convert his wheels into point production.  A hard worker who also possesses a powerful shot.  His puck skills are not very good and it will have to be his work ethic that carries him into the next stages of his career.
