Luc Bourdon dead after motorcycle crash

Reports say Bourdon crashed his motorcycle in northern New Brunswick this morning. Bourdon, who was a native of Shippigan New Brunswick, had apparently taken up mortorbiking as a hobby in the last few weeks and was riding his father's bike up until a couple of days ago, when he bought his own bike, reports say.
Drafted 10th overall by the Canucks in 2005, Bourdon was a very promising defenceman who had improved his play dramatically this past season and would have probably secured a full time roster spot with the Canucks this coming season. Bourdon, in my estimation, would have been at least a top 4 defenceman.
A tragedy in every form of the word. This is a shocking and depressing story. I still can't believe it. The guy was one of my faves all year long.
I am thinking about the Bourdon family right now and hoping that they can cope with this loss in the best way possible.

A statement from Mike Gillis today:

“We are deeply saddened by today’s news and on behalf of the entire Vancouver Canucks organization, I would like to extend my sincere sympathies to Luc’s family,” said Canucks General Manager, Mike Gillis. “Luc was an extremely talented player with a bright future. He brought great passion to the game and was a valued team member on and off the ice. He will be greatly missed.”


-Bourdon's first NHL goal
-Bourdon plays Ovechkin perfectly. One example of how much he improved last season.

It is really shocking that an extremely talented player like Luc Bourdon is no more. What could have been worst that we have lost a promising youth to a tragic motorcycle accident? But meeting with a motorcycle accident is disastrous. When someone undergoes an accident, his/her vehicle is thrown off the balance ultimately bringing fatal injuries. The injuries can be very dangerous & may cost one his/her life. It can affect the victim both mentally & physically. The injuries may range from severe neck pain, stiffness & headaches to pain in the shoulder, lower back pain, and so on. If you have ever met with a motorcycle accident then don’t hesitate to consult a personal injury lawyer for making compensation claims. For more information visit Personal injury lawyers .

That's sad. He was still young when he died, right? Truly, that's life, if he or she is not careful while on the road. So must be well-educated with road rules to prevent accidents and deaths to happen.
