Gabriel Bourque: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Bourque once again played the majority of last season in a checking-line role, yet still managed to deliver 16 points in 34 games, and his 11 goals were second-most on the team. Bourque could be in line for a spot on the team's second line given the departure of Sergei Kostitsyn and Martin Erat, but the addition of free agent Viktor Stalberg might mean he winds up on the team's third line once again. He's good value in deeper formats, though, so keep an eye on him in the later rounds of your fantasy draft.
Bourque played the majority of last season in a checking-line role, yet still managed to deliver 19 points in 43 games in his rookie campaign. He’s a versatile forward who should continue to see the majority of time on either the third or fourth line, so there’s not much to get excited about. However, he might be worth a flyer for those of you in very deep fantasy formats.
