Matt Hendricks would likely move over to the fourth-line center spot if Gordon isn't able to play against the Avalanche.

With only 10 points in 43 games this season, Gordon offers limited ability as a scorer, but he makes up for it through his dominance in the faceoff circle. He ranks 12th in the league with 464 faceoff victories and holds a higher winning percentage (56.0%) than all but three of those players above him.
