Gabriel Bourque

Preds' Bourque Failing To Add Offense

News: Gabriel Bourque was held off the scoresheet during Tuesday's loss to the Bruins.
Analysis: Gabriel Bourque sat out eight games as a healthy scratch during the second half of November, but has played in nine games since then, registering a goal and two assists during that span -- his first points of the season. He essentially has zero fantasy value outside of very deep leagues.

First Points For Preds' Bourque

News: Gabriel Bourque picked up his first goal (an empty-netter) and his first assist of the year Tuesday in a 3-0 win over Colorado.
Analysis: It's been an awful season so far for Gabriel Bourque, who had gone 14 scoreless games to start the campaign, so it's nice to see him put something on the board, even if it wasn't necessarily in incredibly impressive fashion.

Gabriel Bourque, LW, NSH Preds' Bourque Riding Pine

Gabriel Bourque

Preds' Bourque Riding Pine

News: Gabriel Bourque, who has zero points to his credit thus far, has been a healthy scratch six times since the start of the season, including the past two games.
Analysis: What started out as a very promising campaign for Gabriel Bourque, with him skating on the top line with Mike Ribeiro and James Neal, has quickly gone sour. Bourque has since been replaced on the first unit by rookie phenom Filip Forsberg, leaving Bourque as the odd man out. Bourque scored a career-high 26 points in 74 games last season, but doesn't figure to come anywhere close to that total this season, given his current situation. He should not be on anyone's fantasy roster right now.

Gabriel Bourque, LW, NSH Preds' Bourque Toiling On Fourth Line

Preds' Bourque Toiling On Fourth Line

News: Gabriel Bourque, who has zero points in nine games, skated a season-low 7:51 Friday against the Flames, playing on the Predators' fourth line alongside Paul Gaustad and Eric Nystrom.
Analysis: Gabriel Bourque recorded a career-high 26 points last season, but will be hard-pressed to come anywhere near that total this season given his current pace. He's not even shooting the puck all that much (averaging just under one shot per game), which is an indication of just how much he's focusing on his defensive responsibilities these days. Bottom line, Bourque's fantasy value is hovering right around the zero mark in all but the deepest of formats. Avoid.

Preds' Bourque Enjoying Promotion To Top Line

News: Gabriel Bourque saw 18:35 of ice time in Saturday's preseason loss to Columbus, including over six minutes on the power play. He skated mainly on the Preds' first line alongside Mike Ribeiro and James Neal.
Analysis: At the start of training camp, rookie Filip Forsberg was slated to play left wing on the Preds' top line with Neal and Ribeiro, but over the last week or so, it appears Gabriel Bourque has since been moved into this slot with Forsberg playing on the second line with Derek Roy and Craig Smith. Bourque has typically played more of a checking-line role the past few seasons, so this move to the top line definitely gives his fantasy value a boost. He's worth a late-round sleeper pick for those of you in deeper formats.

Bourque Accounts For Preds' Offense Tuesday

News: Gabriel Bourque scored both Nashville goals in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Stars.
Analysis: Rare productivity for Gabriel Bourque, who'd been off the scoresheet for four straight and hadn't scored a goal since March 23. With just 25 points in 71 games on the year, he hasn't been of much use to fantasy owners even in deeper formats.

Gabriel Bourque, LW, NSH Preds' Bourque Notches Goal Tuesday

Gabriel Bourque

Preds' Bourque Notches Goal Tuesday

News: Gabriel Bourque gathered a goal in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Oilers.
Analysis: The tally snapped a 29-game goalless streak for Gabriel Bourque, who has flitted in and out of the lineup as a result of his lack of scoring productivity. He'll be hard-pressed to climb into a regular top-line role for the Preds.

2/9/2014

Gabriel Bourque, LW, NSH Preds' Bourque Struggling To Contribute

Gabriel Bourque

Preds' Bourque Struggling To Contribute

News: Gabriel Bourque failed to hit the scoresheet for the sixth consecutive game Saturday against the Ducks, registering just a single shot on goal in only 12:35 of ice time.
Analysis: Although Gabriel Bourque is just two points shy of the career-high 19 he posted two seasons ago, he is looking more and more out of place as the Preds' second-line left winger. In our view, a guy who has yet to crack the 20-point plateau is really more suited to a checking-line role. Perhaps this is something that coach Barry Trotz will eventually figure out. Either way, he should only be on your fantasy roster if you are in a very deep format. Othwerise, look elsewhere for scoring help.

Gabriel Bourque, LW, NSH Power Outage Continues For Preds’ Bourque

Gabriel Bourque

Power Outage Continues For Preds’ Bourque

News: Gabriel Bourque finished Monday's game against Montreal with zero points, one shot on goal, one blocked shot and a minus-1 rating.  It was the ninth time in the past 11 games that he was held off the score sheet.
Analysis: Gabriel Bourque had a very productive second half of November, tallying eight points in nine games, but he's been stone cold since then.  Bench him until he can find a way to turn things around.

12/15/2013

Gabriel Bourque, LW, NSH Preds Bench Bourque

Gabriel Bourque

Preds Bench Bourque

News: Gabriel Bourque missed Saturday's game against the Sharks as a healthy scratch.
Analysis: The writing was on the wall for Gabriel Bourque, who saw just eight minutes of ice time his previous game. With Craig Smith (flu) now back in the lineup after a three-game absence, it appears Bourque is now on the bubble in Nashville. Bench him immediately.

12/8/2013

Gabriel Bourque, LW, NSH Bourqe Failing To Contribute To Preds' Offensive Attack

Gabriel Bourque

Bourqe Failing To Contribute To Preds' Offensive Attack

News: Gabriel Bourque has just a single assist in his last five games, skating on the Preds' second line alongside Craig Smith and David Legwand.
Analysis: Gabriel Bourque had a very productive second half of November with seven points in as many games (3G, 4A), however his offense appears to have dried up since then. Overall, he's really more of a third line player being forced to play a top-six role due to the Preds' lack of offensive depth. With 11 points in 27 games so far this season, he should surpass his previous career-high of 19 points two seasons ago, but at this rate he will be hard-pressed to crack the 30-point barrier by the end of the season.

Nashville's Bourque Scores In Return

News: Gabriel Bourque scored Nashville's only goal in Friday's loss to Pittsburgh, his first game back since returning from personal reasons after missing Tuesday's contest.
Analysis: Gabriel Bourque has a modest four points over 16 games but has put up decent point-per-game numbers over the last two seasons. Odds are he won't light up the league too much, but those in deeper leagues may want to track Bourque's minutes.

Preds' Bourque Rejoins Team

News: Gabriel Bourque (personal) rejoined the Predators for practice Thursday, Joshua Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: He'll be available Friday vs. the Penguins after missing the previous game for the birth of his baby girl. Gabriel Bourque has three points in 15 games this season.

Predators' Bourque Out Tuesday

News: Gabriel Bourque will not play in Tuesday's game against the Islanders so he can be with his wife for the birth of the couple's first child, Joshua Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Gabriel Bourque went home to be with his wife for the birth as the team is on the road. The Predators do not play again until Friday in Pittsburgh, so it seems likely that he will be able to return in time for that game. In 15 games this season, Bourque has totaled one goal and two assists for the Predators.

Preds' Bourque Off To Slow Start

News: Gabriel Bourque played 13:49 during Sunday's 3-2 win over the Islanders, after missing Friday's 4-0 loss against Toronto.
Analysis: After scoring 16 points in 34 games last season, Gabriel Bourque is off to a slow start with zero points through four contests. Friday's stint riding the pine was surely coach Barry Trotz's way of sending a message that Bourque needs to step up his game. Monitor closely to see whether he responds.

Preds' Bourque Back After Torn Meniscus

News: Gabriel Bourque (knee) picked up a goal while firing four shots on goal and delivering four hits against the Panthers on Tuesday night.
Analysis: With an opportunity to skate on the Preds' second line with Mike Fisher and Patric Hornqvist to open the season, Gabriel Bourque is well positioned to build off of the 11-goal, 16-point effort he delivered over 34 games in the lockout shortened campaign last season. File him away as an intriguing late-round option to roll the dice on in deeper formats.

Preds' Bourque Done For Season

News: Gabriel Bourque is slated to have season-ending surgery to repair his meniscus, the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: The report notes that Gabriel Bourque has been out since April 7 with an unrelated upper body injury, but he'll now turn to getting his knee back in shape. Bourque finishes the season with 11 goals (currently tied for the team lead) and 16 points in 34 games played.

Preds' Bourque Out Sunday

News: Gabriel Bourque (upper body) remains out for Sunday's game against the Blackhawks, ESPN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Consider Gabriel Bourque, who has missed three straight games, day-to-day as Tuesday's game against the Blues approaches.

Predators' Borque (Upper Body) Out For Saturday

News: Gabriel Bourque (upper body) is out for Saturday's game against the Blackhawks, Joshua Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: This will be Gabriel Bourque's third straight game missed due to the upper-body injury, which he suffered during Monday's game against the Blackhawks. Consider him day-to-day beyond Saturday.

Preds' Bourque Suffers Upper-Body Injury

News: Gabriel Bourque left Monday's game against the Blackhawks with an upper-body injury and will not return, Joshua Cooper of the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: The exact nature and severity of Gabriel Bourque's injury are unknown, so consider him day-to-day for the time being. Nashville plays again Tuesday, and if Bourque can't go, Matt Halischuk will likely step in to the second line.

Preds' Bourque Leaves Monday, Will Not Return

News: Gabriel Bourque left Monday's game against the Blackhawks and will not return.
Analysis: There's been no word of an injury to Gabriel Bourque, so it's unclear why he was removed. Perhaps the Predators will provide more information after the game.

Predators' Bourque Scores Again

News: Gabriel Bourque scored in his third-straight game on Friday, giving Nashville one of its three goals in a loss to Calgary.
Analysis: Gabriel Bourque has been a welcomed addition to Nashville's stable of forwards, as he potted his team-leading ninth goal of the season Friday. He doesn't shoot much and he has a mere two assists while seeing little power play time on a sub-par offensive team, but he's been hot of late.

Bourque's SHG Not Enough For Preds

News: Gabriel Bourque snagged a rare shorthanded goal in Nashville's 2-1 loss at San Jose on Saturday night.
Analysis: The shortie is Nashville's first of the season, in additon to being the first of Gabriel Bourque's NHL career.

Predators Recall Bourque

News: The Predators recalled Gabriel Bourque from AHL Milwaukee, The Tennessean's Joshua Cooper reports.
Analysis: Gabriel Bourque was expected to play a few games in Milwaukee before getting the call-up, so this move is business as usual. He registered 19 points in 43 games with the Preds last season.

Preds Have Bigger Plans For Bourque This Season

News: Gabriel Bourque is expected to play a few games at AHL Milwaukee before the Preds call him up, the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Gabriel Bourque started his rookie season last year in a checking-line role but was soon moved onto a scoring line and registered an impressive 19 points (7G, 12A) in just 43 games. The Preds expect him to play a larger role this season, so he could find himself in a top-six situation right away once he arrives. Bourque represents a nice late-round fantasy draft pick opportunity (or waiver-wire pickup candidate) in deeper formats.
