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 hockeyfights.com (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!)!!
