Scott Gordon was born February 6, 1963 in Brockton, Massachusetts and is an professional hockey coach and former professional hockey goaltender. He is currently the head coach of the National Hockey League's New York Islanders and a former head coach of the American Hockey League's Providence Bruins.
Gordon played three years at Boston College and made hockey history on March 16, 1985. Gordon and Chris Terreri both placed water bottles on the top of their nets. This would be the first time ever that goalies would place water bottles on the top of nets in a hockey game. After Boston University, Gordon moved on to an eight year career in professional hockey. He played 23 NHL games for the Quebec Nordiques between 1989 and 1991. After his playing career ended in 1994, he was an assistant coach for the Atlanta Knights of the International Hockey League and went on to become head coach of the Roanoke Express of the ECHL. In 2000, he was named assistant coach of the Providence Bruins under Bill Armstrong, and served for Mike Sullivan in the same capacity. In April 2003, he was named interim head coach of the club when Sullivan was promoted to Boston as an assistant, and named full-time head coach in the fall of 2003.
Gordon, along with his assistant coach Rob Murray, was named to coach the 2008 PlanetUSA AHL All Star team on January 28, 2008 as a result of the Bruins owning the best record in the American Hockey League at the mid-season break. At season's end, Gordon was awarded the 2008 Louis A. R. Pieri Memorial Award, presented to coach of the year in the American Hockey League.

Gordon made his NHL head coaching debut on October 10, 2008, as the Islanders lost to the New Jersey Devils, 2–1.

In 2009–10, the Islanders improved to a 34–37–11 record, getting 79 points, but missed the playoffs once again. The Islanders once again struggled at the start of the 2010–11, as the club had a record of 4–10–3 in their first 17 games to quickly fall out of the playoff picture. On November 15, 2010, the Islanders fired Gordon, replacing him with Jack Capuano. He was given a job as a special advisor to General Manager Garth Snow following his dismissal as head coach.
