    [size=13pt]Canucks’ Luc Bourdon killed in motorcycle crash[/size]

    SHIPPAGAN, New Brunswick (AP)—Luc Bourdon, a promising rookie defenseman with the Vancouver Canucks, was killed Thursday when his motorcycle struck a tractor-trailer in a crash near his hometown. He was 21.

    His death was confirmed by sister Eve Bourdon and stepmother Maryse Godin. Both declined further comment when reached at the family’s home in Shippagan.

    21 is too young to die. Sad to hear that.

    I was so sad about this when I heard it. My dad didn't know the name of the guy, so I had to look it up and when I saw I just stared and started to feel horrible. This kid was for sure going to make the big time next year. Won a gold medal for his country in 2007. The scary part is I was riding home on my bike from school at the same time this happened.

    RIP Luc. All us hockey fans will miss you!

    horrible news..i saw the guy play quite a bit this season here in manitoba for the moose, and he certainly did have a very very promising future in the nhl

    i still just cant believe why these guys have so much money and everything to lose, but still find the need to ride motorcycles, even tho most athletes have stipulations in their contracts that dont allow them to do so..if youve got that much money, go get a high tech motorcycle simulator made similar to the racing simulator gaborik has
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    What can you say? That is just a really really sad story. Kid had a promising future ... and it is all down the drain just like that. Really a sad story.
