Chris Bourque Carries on Father’s Hockey Name, Toils in Providence Awaiting Chance With Bruins (Video)

Ray Bourque was one of the all-time great defensemen, playing 21 seasons with the Bruins before finally capturing a Stanley Cup with the Colorado Avalanche

The Bruins acquired Bourque’s son, Chris, this past May in a trade, and the younger Bourque is hoping to add his own name to Bruins lore in the coming seasons. Unlike his dad, Chris may play left wing, but Chris has been following his dad to the rink since he was old enough to stand. Chances are he picked up some knowledge about how to play positions beyond defense, as well.

Check out the video above for a NESN Daily feature on the special father-son relationship the Bourque’s share.
