History

Gordie Baldwin registered 11 points during the regular season as a rookie with the Medicine Hat Tigers and finished the year with a +13 rating. Although he dressed for 66 games, his average ice time wasn’t very significant but gradually increased over the course of the schedule. Playing behind Cam Barker, Steve Marr, Cody Blanshan and Kris Russell didn’t offer a lot of extra time for Baldwin but when he got the chance he played well enough to catch the eyes of some area scouts. 

2006-07: In his third and final season with the Medicine Hat Tigers (WHL), Baldwin tallied seven goals and a career-high 26 points. He also grabbed the WHL title with the Tigers, his first ever Championship with the club.

2007-08: The blue-liner joined up with QC this season for his first look at professional AHL hockey. In 37 games he registered five assists and 26 penalty minutes, tallying another assist in 12 games with the Las Vegas Wranglers (ECHL).

2008-09: Baldwin spent the majority of the season with Quad City (AHL), netting a pair of goals and six points in 55 games, his best AHL numbers to date. He also spent three games with the Las Vegas Wranglers (ECHL), registering an assist.

Talent Analysis

The 6'5 195 lb Winnipeg native is a physical specimen for the Tigers, a banger that plays sound hockey in his own end and is clearly at his best battling in the trenches of the corners and in front of the net. There is plenty of room on his frame to add 30 pounds and once he does, Baldwin will be even tougher to play against.
