“We are pleased to add Dylan to our defensive core,” said Steelheads coach-GM James Richmond. “He plays hard every shift and has a strong hockey IQ. Dylan will grow into a solid OHL player, and we look forward to seeing him in the blue and white very soon.”
In the 2019-20 season, prior to being drafted, Gordon recorded 55 points (14 goals, 41 assists) in 60 games with the Detroit HoneyBaked 15U team. Most recently, he suited up for the HoneyBaked 16U squad in 2020-21 season and registered 19 points (six goals, 13 assists) in 35 games.
