Luc Bourdon, a first round pick (10th overall) for the Vancouver Canucks from the 2005 NHL Entry draft was killed this morning in a motorcycle accident. Although not a star player, he was still an important asset to the team as an excellent skater and a powerful offensive player.
He was instrunmental in Canada's gold-medal win at the 07 world juniors with four points in six games, as well as six points in as many games at the 06 tourny in Vancouver, in which Canada took the win over Russia. Although he never got the chance to prove himself as a true Canuck, he had very high expectations placed on his shoulders and he will truly be missed.
RIP Luc Bourdon.http://www.cbc.ca/sportsnews/story/2008/05/29/bourdon-canucks-death.html
