Gordin was traded from the SKA system to the Sochi system this previous week, and already in his first game with his new team in the KHL he scored a goal. It was one where the sniper jumped in on a rebound and whacked it in from within the crease.
Gordin has played two games for Sochi and it will be interesting to see where he ends up in the organization. The potential is there when it comes to his shot and to a degree his hockey IQ, but the problem is still his skating. If he can work on that while in the KHL, things could be very interesting for Laval when his contract runs out with the Russian club.
