RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Bourdon made his NHL debut with the Flyers last season, managing a plus-4 and 52 PIMs over 45 games. The Flyers are a team with great defensive depth and he’s unlikely to skate on one of their top two defensive pairs with any consistency this season. Expect low point production, high PIMs, and a slightly above average plus-minus if Bourdon can manage to stick with the Flyers for a good portion of the season. A potentially season-long injury to Andrej Meszaros (achilles) could lead to an increased role for the young Bourdon.
Bourdon tallied 19 points and 53 PIMs in the AHL last season, and is likely to repeat the level again this season.
