Eastern Conference Eye Candy: Boyd Gordon (Washington Capitals)

So I was watching the Pens / Caps game yesterday and this guy caught my eye (after he received a tripping penalty in the first period and was escorted to the box). He's what Kena would call my "type." You know, dark hair / dark eyes (the Sid-type!)!! Yes - he's definitely "my type" and that's probably why he caught my eye in the first place.

  • born in Unity, SK, Canada
  • plays right wing, shoots right
  • named to 2003 WHL East First All-Star Team
  • represented Canada in the 2003 World Junior Championship (earning a silver medal)
  • has spent all six years of his professional career with Washington since he was their first-round pick in 2002 (17th overall); rookie season 2003-2004, re-signed with the Capitals in 2006
  • made his first SCF appearance last season, but the Caps fell to Philadelphia in the first round
  • leads the Capitals in face-off wins this season (seventh in the NHL) - 57.1%


Well, Gordon is simply yummy - just look at him!! He's 6'0 - 6'1 depending on where you research on the internet and weighs a healthy 201 pounds making him a pretty solid hockey player. You won't see him scrap though -- I looked him up on (because that always interests me about a player not to mention adds to the hotness factor), and he's not even listed which I find quite interesting!!

His favorite sports aside from hockey are baseball and soccer; his favorite athlete is Wayne Rooney (English football / soccer player) and his favorite movie is “Gladiator” (a pretty manly selection).

Oh, and ladies, his nickname is "muffins" (which I can interpret in all sorts of ways, but decided to leave it up to your own discretion - have fun!)!!

Regardless of "type". I would like some of that please. WOW!

Although Backstrom is still my favorite Cap and has probably been distracting me. This dude has to go on the "watch for" list.
