Coda Gordon: A Great Sleeper Prospect
Coda Gordon could end up being one of the best forwards in the 2012 draft. Seriously.
While he does have skating issues, it is a rare feat to be able to put up 30 goals as a 17 year old. If he can improve his goal and point totals this coming year .... 30+ goals and about 85 points, I would feel very confident that he will become an NHL sniper in about 3 years.
Solid goal and point progression from year-to-year is one of the major milestones that a prospect needs to show, and this coming year will be a major 'tell' whether Gordon will one day be patrolling the wing for the Flames one day.
I'll be watching his season closely.
