Jackets' Bourque Won't Play Friday

News: Rene Bourque (upper body) will not play Friday against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Rene Bourque was limited to skating on his own during Friday's morning skate, so he'll be forced to sit out his second straight game. The injury has come at an unfortunate time for Bourque, as he had potted three goals and put 12 shots on net in the last two games he played. He could be back in action for Saturday's game against the Blackhawks, but a top-line role might not necessarily be waiting for him.

Blue Jackets' Bourque Day-To-Day

News: Rene Bourque (upper body) is expected to travel with the Blue Jackets on the team's upcoming two-game road trip.
Analysis: That said, it remains unclear at this stage if Rene Bourque is considered a candidate to play either Friday in Chicago, Saturday in St. Louis, or even in both contests.

Blue Jackets' Bourque Day-To-Day

News: Rene Bourque (upper body) will not play Tuesday against the Ducks.
Analysis: Rene Bourque -- who has notched three goals in his last two games -- is considered day-to-day as Friday's game against Chicago approaches.

Jackets' Bourque Buries Old Team With Two Goals

News: Rene Bourque buried his former team Saturday, potting a pair of goals -- including the game-winner in overtime -- in a 3-2 win over the Flames.
Analysis: Rene Bourque stole the show at the Saddledome on Saturday afternoon, a place he called home for nearly four seasons. He now has four points -- all of which have been goals -- in eight games with Columbus, and 14 points overall in 51 contests this season.

Jackets' Bourque Gets Goal, Fires Off Eight Shots

News: Rene Bourque bagged a goal on a team-high eight shot attempts during Thursday's win over the Canucks.
Analysis: Since arriving from AHL Springfield on Mar. 7, Rene Bourque has suited up for all seven of the Blue Jackets' games. He only has two points to show for it, but he's at least been putting a decent number of shots on net, firing off 19 attempts during that span. Bourque skated on the top line next to Ryan Johansen on Thursday, and if that continues to hold over the next few games, that shot production may begin to translate into goals sooner or later.

Jackets Recall Bourque On Emergency Basis

News: Rene Bourque was recalled from AHL Springfield on an emergency basis Saturday.
Analysis: The Blue Jackets assigned Rene Bourque to the minors after acquiring him Monday in a deadline deal with the Ducks, but it won't take long for him to make his way to the parent club. His call-up likely signifies that at least one of the Blue Jackets' forwards got banged up in Friday's 3-2 win over the Devils. If that's indeed the case, look for Bourque to receive a look Saturday against the Avalanche.

Jackets' Bourque Will Report To AHL Springfield

News: Rene Bourque, who was acquired by the Blue Jackets in Monday's trade that sent James Wisniewski to the Ducks, will report to AHL Springfield, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: There was some thought that Rene Bourque might get the opportunity to showcase himself with the Blue Jackets following his acquisition, but the parent club was apparently already satisfied with its current crop of forwards. It may take another injury to one of the Blue Jackets' wings in order for Bourque to receive the call to Columbus.

Columbus Acquires Bourque From Anaheim

News: Rene Bourque was one of the pieces traded to the Blue Jackets on Monday in exchange for defenseman James Wisniewski, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports. Along with Bourque, the Blue Jackets will receive forward William Karlsson and a 2015 second-round pick, while the Ducks will acquire a 2015 third-round draft in addition to Wisniewski.
Analysis: After going unclaimed off waivers hours earlier, Rene Bourque will find himself in a new destination after all. He's just a throw-in piece to Karlsson and the draft pick, the primary draws in the deal, but should have an opportunity to claim a regular role with his new club. The Blue Jackets are dealing with a number of injuries on the wing, creating an opening for Bourque to settle into a third- or fourth-line role.

Ducks Place Bourque On Waivers

News: Rene Bourque was placed on waivers by the Ducks on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night In Canada reports.
Analysis: Rene Bourque has found himself a healthy scratch more often than not recently, and it has finally led to him being place on waivers. It's possible that he will stick around with the team if he clears waivers, but the team's intention at this point is a bit unclear.

Ducks' Bourque Continues To Struggle

News: Rene Bourque was relegated to fourth line duty and was unable to record a point in Friday's tilt with the Flames.
Analysis: Rene Bourque's inability to crack the Ducks' lineup on a consistent basis, coupled with the fact that he hasn't scored a goal in nearly two months, make him a poor fantasy option at this point in time.

Ducks' Bourque Records Assist In Win

News: Rene Bourque contributed an assist in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Flames.
Analysis: After serving as a healthy scratch for the Ducks in Saturday's win over the Kings, Rene Bourque was able to make an impact in his return, albeit in limited ice time. Along with Devante Smith-Pelly and Tim Jackman, Bourque could be at risk of slotting in and out of the lineup at any given night, which won't help his chances of maintaining fantasy relevance.

Ducks' Bourque Dishes Two Helpers Friday

News: Rene Bourque dished out two assists in Friday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.
Analysis: He also skated on the top line and power-play unit with superstar captain Ryan Getzlaf. Although Rene Bourque has failed to record more than 16 points since 2010-11 with Montreal and Calgary, his assignment with Getzlaf thrusts the former 58-point winger into immediate fantasy relevance. With that in mind, you could do worse than to take a stab at Bourque if you need help up front.

Ducks' Bourque Notches First Goal

News: Rene Bourque nabbed a power-play goal for his first goal of the season in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Jets.
Analysis: Rene Bourque has just two points in eight games with his new club, but appears to already be earning more playing time as he logged 15:26 worth of ice time, his highest total since joining the Ducks. As he gets more comfortable with the new team, the points may start to come more frequently.

Newly-Acquired Bourque To Report To Ducks, Not AHL

News: Rene Bourque, who was acquired by the Ducks in a trade Thursday, will report to Anaheim. "He will get a decent look at a spot," GM Bob Murray said.
Analysis: Rene Bourque had been banished to AHL Hamilton last week by the Canadiens last week, but the Ducks seem hopeful that the winger could provide an upgrade over one of the current forwards on their roster. It may take a couple games for coach Bruce Boudreau to determine where Bourque fits best, but he could yield some value if he ends up sticking in a top-six role with his new club.

Habs Trade Bourque To Ducks

News: Rene Bourque was traded to the Ducks on Thursday in exchange for defenseman Bryan Allen.
Analysis: Rene Bourque had fallen out of regular role in Montreal before being banished to AHL Hamilton last week, so the change of scenery should brighten his outlook. It's not known if he'll immediately report to the Ducks or join their minor league affiliate in Norfolk, but through injury or another scenario, he figures to get another look in the NHL before the season ends.

Habs' Bourque To Report To AHL Hamilton

News: Rene Bourque will report to AHL Hamilton, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Analysis: It was reported earlier on Monday that Rene Bourque was placed on waivers by Montreal. Since no team claimed him, he will now spend some time in the AHL. The 32-year-old winger has struggled this season, scoring no goals and two assists in 13 games played.

Habs' Bourque Waived By Habs

News: Rene Bourque has been placed on waivers by the Habs, Renaud Lavoie of le Journal de Montreal reports.
Analysis: Further reports indicate that if Rene Bourque is not claimed by another team by midday Monday, he will be sent down to the AHL. So far this season, Bourque has just two assists and zero goals in 13 games, which leaves little doubt as to why he was waived by the Habs.

Habs' Bourque Scratched Again

News: Rene Bourque is a healthy scratch for Saturday night's game against the Wild, Hockey Inside Out reports.
Analysis: This will be the second straight game Rene Bourque's been a healthy scratch. He was inactive for Wednesday's game and replaced by Michael Bournival, who suffered a shoulder injury and is sidelined indefinitely. Rather than go back to Bourque, head coach Michel Therrien opted for Travis Moen instead.

Canadiens Scratch Bourque

News: Rene Bourque was a healthy scratch from Wednesday night's game against the Sabres, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: All one needs to see is Rene Bourque's two assists and minus-9 through 13 games to understand what motivated head coach Michel Therrien to sit the veteran left-winger. He was replaced in the lineup by Jiri Sekac.

Habs' Bourque Having Slow Start

News: Rene Bourque, who has one assist in 10 games, was benched for a stretch during the second period of Wednesday night's win over the Flames, the Montreal Gazette reports. He skated just 7:47 on Wednesday and is minus-five for the season.
Analysis: Rene Bourque and the rest of the third line are not producing much offense early on and it's been a target of head coach Michel Therrien's tinkering. First, Jiri Sekac was moved off and then the coach benched both Bourque and Lars Eller on Wednesday.

Bourque's Hat Trick Carries Habs In Game 5

News: Rene Bourque scored a trio of goals, went plus-3 and ended up with 17 PIM in Tuesday's Game 5 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: A massive night for Rene Bourque, who's now got eight playoff goals -- putting him in a three-way tie for second-most in the league. But he took a game misconduct for a dirty crosscheck at the end of the game, which could result in a suspension.

Habs' Bourque Sits Out Morning Skate

News: Rene Bourque did not take part in Saturday's morning skate.
Analysis: The team is calling it a "therapy day" for Rene Bourque, who battled through an illness earlier in the week. He may not be quite at full strength, but there's been nothing to suggest Bourque, who leads the Canadiens in goals this postseason with four, won't be on the ice for Saturday's Game 5 against Boston.

Habs' Bourque Set To Play On Tuesday

News: Rene Bourque (flu) will play in Tuesday's game against the Bruins, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Rene Bourque missed Monday's practice with the flu, but he's slated to suit up for Tuesday's Game 3. After scoring nine goals in 63 regular season contests, Bourque's production has picked up in the postseason. He currently leads the Habs with four playoff goals (to go along with one assist) in six games.

Habs' Bourque Returns To The Ice On Tuesday

News: Rene Bourque (illness) was present for Tuesday's morning skate, NESN.com reports.
Analysis: Rene Bourque didn't practice Monday as he was dealing with a case of the flu, but his presence at the Habs' morning skate bodes well for his status for Tuesday's Game 3 against the Bruins.

Habs' Bourque Misses Practice

News: Rene Bourque (illness) was not at practice Monday, TVA's Renaud Lavoie reports.
Analysis: Though Rene Bourque is evidently feeling under the weather, coach Michel Therrien noted Monday that hopefully the forward will play Tuesday against the Bruins. After a regular season in which he recorded just nine goals and 16 points in 63 games, Bourque has already notched four goals and five points in six postseason contest to date.
