Last but not least is the quiet buzzer beater of a deal that saw Sebastian Erixon traded to Anaheim for Andrew Gordon. Erixon is a low ranking defensive prospect (Hockey's Future has him behind Patrick McNally) who hasn't - and may never - played one shift at the NHL level. There isn't much to crow about Gordon other than - unlike Erixon - he's played some NHL games, the majority of which has been this season on the fourth line for the Ducks. He can kill penalties and has decent speed, but at this stage in the season he's effectively injury insurance for the playoffs.
ASSETS: Is really fast. Usually works as hard as any player on the ice. Is a sound positional player and a good point producer at the minor-league level.
FLAWS: Doesn't have the size teams seek for the NHL game. Isn't a very physical winger, either. Must prove he can produce consistently at the highest level.
CAREER POTENTIAL: Speedy energy winger with a little upside.
