After losing Canada’s highest-flyer, Gavin Schmitt, as part of a 5-player mass exodus, Polish side Asseco Resovia has locked-in another Canadian for the 2016-2017 season. John Gordon extended his contract with Resovia last week for another year.

Gordon played in 31 PlusLiga games and exactly 100 sets last season, scoring a total of 226 points. That included 29 aces and 25 blocks for the 27-year old Canadian National Teamer.

Gordon stands 6’7″ (201cm) and started his career at middle blocker before shifting to outside hitter. At the 2016 Summer Olympics, where Canada finished in a tie for 5th place, Gordon started at outside hitter for his home country, with former club teammate Schmitt as his opposite.

Gordon was a part of the Canadian teams at the 2011, 2013, and 2015 NORCECA Championships, where they won bronze, silver, and gold, respectively. Resovia is the 3rd professional team in his career, after a season spent in Italy and 4 years in Turkey.

Gordon’s listed spike height is at 358cm (141″) and his listed block height is at 329cm (130″).
