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.

Habs' Bourque Producing In Playoffs

News: Rene Bourque's productive playoffs continued in Thursday's Game 1 against Boston, as he tallied a goal, an assist and a plus-2 rating in the double-overtime win.
Analysis: Rene Bourque's been a point-per-game player so far in the playoffs, with four goals and an assist in five contests, and he's got a plus-6 rating to boot. Impressive -- and surprising -- work from the winger, who tallied only 16 points in 63 regular-season games.

Habs' Bourque Stays Active

News: Rene Bourque had seven shots on goal and four hits in Tuesday night's series-clinching win over Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Rene Bourque had himself a nice run against the Lightning, with 22 shots and three goals in the four-game sweep.

Canadiens' Bourque Scores Another Goal

News: Rene Bourque scored a goal on eight shots on net in Montreal's Game 3 win over the Lightning on Sunday.
Analysis: Rene Bourque only scored nine goals all season, but he now has three in his last two games, and has looked good. It probably won't last, but he has two 27-goal seasons to his name.

Bourque Boosts Montreal

News: Rene Bourque scored twice in Friday's 4-1 win over Tampa Bay in Game 2 of their Atlantic Division semifinal series, his first points of the playoffs.
Analysis: Rene Bourque's first goal saw him dart through the Tampa Bay defense and deftly finish past Anders Lindback. Bourque had been rather inconsistent this season, as his nine goals didn't exactly mesh well with his high cap hit. The odds of him scoring consistently in the postseason are limited if his regular season bears any meaning.

Bourque Logs Assist In Canadiens' Loss

News: Rene Bourque logged an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to Chicago.
Analysis: The eight-year veteran has been an intermittent victim of the healthy scratch treatment recently, so it's nice to see him get off the schneid. However, it's just his third point in the last 13 games. With 15 points in 60 games played, Rene Bourque is in the midst of the worst offensive season of his career and is in danger of being left off the active roster for the first round of the playoffs.

Habs' Bourque Back In Lineup Saturday

News: Rene Bourque is back in the lineup for Saturday's game against Detroit.
Analysis: George Parros replaced Rene Bourque on Friday, but the Habs will go with a bit of skill in place of brute strength for Saturday's game. Parros has logged less than 98 minutes on the ice this season, compared to 80 minutes in the penalty box.

Habs' Bourque A Healthy Scratch

News: George Parros will replace Rene Bourque in Friday's lineup against the Senators, TVA's Renaud Lavoie reports.
Analysis: Rene Bourque has been in and out of the lineup throughout the season, but Friday's scratch comes as a bit of a surprise. He saw just 7:58 of ice time in Monday's game, after topping 11 minutes in each of the previous five games.

Habs' Bourque: Goal And Assist In Return

News: Rene Bourque, who had been scratched for five straight games, scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's win over Toronto. He played 11:52 and fired six shots on net.
Analysis: His coach wanted intensity and it looks like he delivered. This should earn him another start or two, and expect him to continue to push hard. He might even surprise from a fantasy perspective because he has something to prove.

Habs' Bourque Likely To Play Saturday

News: Rene Bourque practiced on the third line during Friday's practice, the Montreal Gazette reports. The winger has been a healthy scratch the past five games.
Analysis: It looks like Rene Bourque will be the roster replacement for the injured Brandon Prust, who will miss the rest of the regular season with an upper-body injury. Coach Michel Therrien acknowledged speaking with Bourque earlier this week and let the winger know he wants see some intensity from him when he does get back on the ice.
