Really happy for him. I was never a big fan but he was solid. Honestly though after being out of the game for so long I'm not so sure he's gonna be all that valuable. Still a real nice story.

That's great. Hopefully things go relatively smoothly with no setbacks. Always liked him and he was pretty decent.

What a story. I just hope his next hit isn't his last. Good luck, MAB!

Do not play him against the Penguins. they will target his head constantly like they did in the playoffs to him.

The Flyers don't play Pittsburgh until March, so no worries there for a while.

Won't somebody have to be waived now since the Flyers would be over the 23 man roster limit once he gets back from the phantoms? It will probably be him if so.

I doubt he'll play for Philly this year but it's great that he's symptom free.

Great news for the kid.

He's a long ways away from getting back to where he was, although he was a long ways away from getting back to zero, aswell. Best of luck to the guy, he obviously has the heart and drive to do it.

Broad Street Hocket, via ASF, is reporting that Bourdon cleared waivers in September. Because he went unclaimed, he can remain in Adirondack beyond the 14 day limit of the CBA.

They are short on details. Maybe CSN will have something soon.

The problem with Bourdon is that he is a smaller guy playing bigger than his size who is not afraid of physical contact.
It's easier to avoid elbows when you are taller than 6' 0"...

The Phantom's have lost some defensemen recently to injury so chances are good he can stay in the lineup even though he is not expected to be in game shape right now. Sheltered minutes on the third pairing are exactly what he needs right now to get back on track.

And yes, as far as I know he had been put on waivers and cleared when the season started.

Glad his recovery is going well.

Hopefully he gets a shot at making the team one year.

Awesome. I do hope to see him on the ice again and then score a goal. This kid has worked hard and deserves a shot again.

I thought he played pretty well, not to mention for a lot of it he was still concussed.

Anyone thinking that if he is able to play up with the big club sometime this season and does well enough that he could be our #5/#6 next season?

I know, I'm jumping the gun.

This kid refuses to be denied. If willpower alone were enough to keep him healthy...

Fingers crossed.

Thank you.

It would be nice to see him get back to being a solid 5/6 dman like he was starting to look like.
