Yesterday, former Terrier Chris Bourque was traded by the Washington Capitals to the Boston Bruins for Bruins former first round pick Zach Hamill. Bourque played one year at BU, the 2005 season, where posted 10 goals and 13 assists in his lone season as a Terrier.
Bourque reportedly left after his freshman season because of academic reasons. He was a drafted 33rd overall by the Capitals in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. He spent the bulk of his first few pro seasons in the AHL, before being called up to the Cap's in 2007. In 33 NHL games (2007-2010) Bourque has one goal, three assists, and 12 penalty minutes. Last season, Bourque lead the AHL in scoring with 93 points (27 goals, 66 assists, 73 games played) as a member of the Hershey Bears.
