Ray Bourque's son.....

Doesn't Raymond have a son who plays defence?
And when are we going to draft him?

Chris Borque. He was converted to forward because he is 5'9 160.

He was drafted by the Moncton Wildcats of the QMJHL, but didnt report. He has signed a letter of intent to play for Boston College.

Ouch

5'10" 160.........he better start pushing weight.
At least he gets some free schooling out of it.
I'm sure the Bruins will draft him at some point.
Free publicity.

He is 1/29/1986 bday so he is elgible this year. Not sure if he enter the draft or not.

He is tiny so he might opt out and hope he grows.

Back in June he was 5'8 157 at the Q draft.

He's only 18, he's still got at least two more years of growing left in him. He could probably pan out to be 6'0 200 and that would be decent size, that's about how big Moran is.

It would be interesting to see if Chris can make it to the NHL.

I've been watching Chris play for the past year or so. He definitely has skill, but right now *if* he were old enough to be drafted, I don't see him being an impact player or anything more than an AHL-er. He needs to get bigger.

I could have sworn Chris was only a Junior this year-- has he really started to close deals with colleges?

You are correct. He *is* a junior, but also an '86 birthdate meaning he can opt-in to the 2004 draft if he wants. He has signed a letter of intent to BU, but isn't slated to arrive on campus until the fall of '05.

Under the new NCAA rules, he is eligible for the '04 draft and can keep his college eligibility, as he will not have played a single game at BU by his opt-in date.

Or, he can wait until the '05 draft, and then he doesn't have to opt-in at all. But, he'll be an undersized 19-year-old who has yet to play an NCAA game at that time. Unless he goes and plays junior hockey in '04-'05 somewhere in the USHL or EJHL, playing his senior year of prep hockey won't do much for his stock.

Last I knew Kirk, he was trying to accelerate to be with BU starting next season. I wonder if that fell through?

Not a big fan of Chris Bourque.

He's definitely skilled for the league he plays in, but I don't know if he has the sheer talent and will of his old man to make it at the highest level.

Time will tell, but I think he'll turn out to be an average to above-average collegian who goes on to have little impact at the pro hockey level.

Now, from what I hear about younger brother Ryan, he may end up being a different story, but we'll see...

Upon further review, I am mistaken.

Funny, because I went back and looked at my own article written for the October issue of New England Hockey Journal on Bourque and it says: "Bourque plans to be at Cushing Academy for his final season and will attend Boston University in the fall of '04."

Ruh-roh...brain cramp!

But your post got me thinking- thanks for the save, Tim!
