Gordon (back) was traded to the Coyotes on Tuesday in exchange for forward Lauri Korpikoski.

Gordon annually ranks as one of the best performers in the faceoff circle, as illustrated by his 55.9 percent winning rate in 2014-15. However, that's about where his fantasy value begins and ends, as he's never been a big scorer or hitter, even by the standards of a fourth-line player. Additionally, his plus/minus rating remained a regular risk during his tenure with a bad Oilers team, and that figures to remain the case in 2015-16 with the Coyotes projected to be one of the league's worst units.

Gordon (back) is likely out for the remainder of the season, Jonathan Willis of the Edmonton Journal reports.

Gordon remains bothered by the back issue and will miss an eighth consecutive game Thursday against the Sharks. Since Gordon failed to resume practicing as of Wednesday, the club will probably opt to shut him down in an effort to get him healthy heading into the 2015-16 campaign, which will be a contract year.

Gordon (back) will not play in Tuesday's game versus the Kings.

Gordon appeared on the cusp of returning to the lineup in late March after he was cleared to travel on the Oilers' road trip, but it appears he's been slow to progress since that time. He'll sit out a seventh straight contest Tuesday, and with only two games remaining on the team's schedule, it's beginning to look doubtful that he might play again.

Gordon (back) will not return to the Oilers' lineup Wednesday against the Ducks, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Gordon is traveling with the Oilers on their road trip and was able to skate with the team Wednesday morning, but he'll still need a little more practice time before reentering the lineup. He'll head to the press box for a fourth consecutive game.
