Police reported that Bourdon was killed when he lost control of his motorcycle on a road near his home in Shippagan in northern New Brunswick around 12:30 P.M. He reportedly struck a tractor-trailer and was killed instantly.
The young and talented defenseman was a key factor to Canada’s consecutive gold-medal finish at the World Junior Championship. Drafted by the Canucks 10th overall in the 2005 draft, Luc Bourdon showed many signs of potential stardom during his days with Vancouver, and he will be sorely missed by his family, friends, and hockey fans from across the world.
I wish to express my deepest sympathy to the Bourdon family, and hope they can find peace in this situation.
Rest in peace, dear Luc.
