Bordson Returns to Phantoms
June 20, 2013

The Adirondack Phantoms have announced that forward Rob Bordson has agreed to an AHL contract for the 2013-14 season. This will be Bordson's fourth season in professional hockey and he has been a part of the Phantoms in all four.

The 25-year-old from Duluth, Minnesota was one of just two players (along with Danny Syvret) to suit up for all 76 Adirondack Phantoms' games last season. He was able to accomplish this even after a scary incident in which an errant slap-shot hit him in the head. The blast on Sunday, March 24 broke through his visor and left Bordson with a black-eye and some stitches but he was able to return to the lineup for the team's next game on March 29.

In 2012-13 Bordson scored an AHL career-high 12 goals along with 13 assists and 25 points. The hard-working forward can play center or wing and has proven himself invaluable on the penalty-kill.

He has played in 161 career games with Adirondack scoring 21 goals, 32 assists and 55 points. He is tied for sixth all-time in career games played for the Adirondack Phantoms and is only 24 games behind Kevin Marshall (185) for most career games in team history.

The former University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldog initially joined the Phantoms in November, 2010 coming over from the Syracuse Crunch after he was traded by the Anaheim Ducks organization to the Philadelphia Flyers.

The next season, Bordson rejoined the Phantoms at the tail-end of 2011-12 after playing the beginning part of the year in the ECHL.

In his third season, 2012-13, Bordson spent the entire year with the Phantoms for the first time in his career.

On February 1, 2013 he scored two goals against the Norfolk Admirals in a 5-2 victory. It was the second multi-goal game of his AHL career and his first since his rookie season when he had a pair of lamplighters on January 26, 2011 in a 4-3 win against the Binghamton Senators.

In Bordson's AHL career, he has appeared in 184 games and has scored 22 goals and 58 points. This included 15 games with the Syracuse Crunch in 2010-11 and eight games with the Rochester Americans in 2011-12. He also played in 38 games with Trenton in the ECHL in 2011-12. Last season he surpassed 200 professional games.
