Edit: Chris Botta, as always – received clarification on this story and Gordon will be an assistant for the World Championships. Even still, it’s a great honor to be included in any aspect regarding world play. PS, I never corrected the daylight savings time – so I corrected the post to read 3:18pm instead of 2:18.
Just came across a video clip on CBC that discusses Islanders head coach Scott Gordon as a potential assistant coach for Team USA for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. It should be announced officially shortly.
Good for Gordo!
Here is the link to the video: CBC Hockey Night Online 4/6/09
Also regarding the 2010 Team USA roster, Greg Logan has a post up this afternoon pertaining to Kyle Okposo as a candidate for Team USA.
Interesting development, both individuals would certainly benefit from some Olympic experience for their home country!
