RIP Luc Bourdon

This isn't Badger hockey news but it's important regardless. The hockey community lost a very good hockey player that was only 21 years old. Luc Bourdon, rookie for the Vancouver Canucks died in a motorcycle accident today. The Shippagan, NB defenseman was drafted 10th overall in the 2005 NHL Entry draft but the Canucks.

The sad thing about this is the lack of sincerity from ESPN. If this were a baseball player, a football player, a basketball player, hell even tennis, or soccer, this would be the main story on ESPN.com. While it is the main story on TSN.CA, it's not even on the ESPN.com front page anymore. Pardon my language, but thats bullshit. Deepest sympathies on behalf of the Badger Hockey blog to the Bourdon family.
