It was only fitting that former Capitals prospect Andrew Gordon scored his first goal of the season for the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night in coach Bruce Boudreau’s debut behind the bench there. With Bob Woods, the man who led Gordon and the Hershey Bears to the 2009 Calder Cup, there, too, it was a pretty cool situation for the 25-year-old.

But Dave Lozo of NHL.com also brought up something interesting: That Gordon has to be the first player to score his first two career goals for the same coach on two different teams.

And JP of Japers Rink and our columnist Dan Daly continued that thought by pointing out the list of players who scored just one goal with the Caps. It’s a good one.

Joining Gordon are the likes of current Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville, Caps radio analyst Ken Sabourin, not-former-NFL-coach John Gruden and legends like Ivan MajeskyAlexei Tezikov and Andreas Salomonsson.

Also, two part-time Caps players from last season, Marco Sturm and Scott Hannan. Current defenseman Roman Hamrlik is on the list for now, too.

Full list can be found here.

(Thanks to J.P and Dan for the idea for this blog post. Yes I realize the coach Gruden’s first name is spelled Jon.)
