Chris Bourque Taged as MVP of Calder Cup

Last night the Washington Capitals AHL team, the Hershey Bears, won the Calder Cup after a game six, 4-0 victory over the Texas Stars. Former Terrier stand out Chris Bourque was named the tournament MVP. This the second Calder Cup in as many years for chocolate town.Bourque was the teams scoring leader with 7 goals and 20 assists.

Bourque only played one season ('04-'05) at BU but certainly made a name for himself. Scoring the game winning goal in overtime of the Beanpot final against Northeastern. It came in game where the Huskies out played the Terriers. Bourque was able to find rebound out in front an dive across the crease and knock the puck past the Husky net minder (Video, Goal is around 7:45) . The goal locked almost exactly like his Fathers goal in the 1996 all star game. video below.

  1. It's too bad that Chris Bourque wasn't smart enough to go to class play at BU. Chris would have had at least 1 D1 championship under his belt.
