Bourque Ready for Pro Life

bourqueIn day 1 of the Rangers “20 Prospects in 20 Days” feature they take a look at 2009 third round pick Ryan Bourque who is preparing for his pro debut after signing his first Rangers contract in March…

“You’re not going to get anywhere in life if you don’t put in the work and put in the hours and just pushing yourself to the limit every day. That’s how you get to the next level, and that’s how you maximize your development and performance,” Bourque said. “That’s something that’s inbred in me ever since I was a young kid. I think if you watch me you’ll see that I don’t really hold anything back and I just go after it every time I have an opportunity to. … I enjoy being challenged and being the underdog.”

This past season, Bourque had 26 goals, 33 assists and a plus-14 rating. He was also outstanding in the playoffs, notching five goals and 11 assists in 18 games.

Gordie Clark, the Rangers’ Director, Player Personnel, said this of Bourque…

“He’s not an elite scorer, but he can score goals. And then there is the defensive side of it. We’ve always tabbed him as a two-way player with heart and skating ability.”

…Bourque projects to be a nice 3rd line energy guy that every successful team seems to need to win. Looking forward to seeing what he can do in Hartford this season.
