This year our Grand Marshal was Andrew Gordon. Andrew is a 21 year old from Porter’s Lake. He grew up playing Minor Hockey on the Eastern Shore, then went on to play with the Dartmouth Subways. After playing with The Athol Murray College of Notre Dame he went on to play with Saint Cloud State University.
Andrew recently completed his junior season at St. Cloud State in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. He led the Huskies in goals each of the past two seasons and was a first-team All-WCHA selection this year. He helped lead St. Cloud State to a second-place finish in the conference and a berth in the NCAA Tournament.
Andrew finished this season with 45 points (22 goals, 23 assists) in 40 games, including 12 power-play goals, which led St. Cloud State and ranked tied for third nationally. He led the team in goals and was second in points, Andrew led the Huskies in goals (20) and points (40) in 2005-06.
Andrew was a seventh-round selection of the Capitals, 197th overall, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft who signed with the Washington Capitals for a three-year entry-level contract beginning next season. We wish him all the best in his future and look forward to seeing what is next to come for this rising star!
