    I live in Vancouver and am a huge fan of the Canucks. I have seen him play hockey and it looked like he was going to have a bright future in it. It is deeply saddening and tragic. RIP LUC BOURDON.

    Re: Alexis – What in the heck are you talking about? Guaranteed he WAS wearing a helmut. Unfortunately accidents happen and regardless of what vehicle you are riding in/on a collision with a tractor trailer is almost certain death.
    My thoughts are with his family. RIP Luc Bourdon.

    its a pity.
    when are people going to realize how dangerous motorcycles are?
    if i owned a sports team, no player would be allowed to ride one.

    Re: j
    couldnt disagree with you more. there are no safety devices on motorcycles.
    no seat belts and no airbags. if you get into a car accident, good chance you'll walk away. if you get in a motorcycle accident, good chance you wont walk away. BASIC COMMON SENSE!!!!

    Ouch. Honestly, never heard of him in my life, but I always cringe when I read about people getting in road accidents. Got to be one of the worst ways to die. 21? Sad. Way too young.

    63

    So sad, I just saw it on CBC right before Simpsons came on and I am only a few hours away from where this took place (somewhat Southern New Brunswick). I watched him play on both Team Canada and with the Canucks. My thoughts and prayers go to his family.

    Re: Alexis – For your info, because you obviously didn't do your research, helmets are mandatory in Canada.

  70. U.A. says – reply to this


    70

    He absolutely was wearing a helmut, that's the law here in New Brunswick. That won't keep you from breaking your neck or anything else, unfortunately, I lost a friend in high school and an uncle in motorcycle accidents.

    New Brunswick lost another precious son, RIP.

  71. BeBe says – reply to this

    My thoughts & prayers go out to his family. How sad and how unfortunate.

  72. :( says – reply to this


    72

    Re: Alexis – if he was on a motorcycle, he WAS wearing a helmet so that was pointless to say. when you're on a motorcycle, no matter how much protective gear, you're no match for a tractor-trailer. I've lost too many friends in motorcycle accidents who did EVERYTHING right.

    What a sad loss of life, Rest in Peace.

  73. Meliss says – reply to this


    73

    Thank you Perez for bringing this to everybodies attention. This is why Canada loves you.
    I am also a huge Canucks fan and his presence on the ice will be missed greatly. He had much talent and a promising future. R.I.P :(
    P.S Alexis, it is the LAW to wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle in Canada.

    I extend my heartfelt condolences to Luc Bourdon's family and friends, and to the entire Vancouver Canucks organization, plus to his fans. It would have been a joy to see him play against Calgary. -Flames Fan

    I live in Vancouver and i just want to say that Luc Bourdon was a kick ass player, so much passion for the game! My thoughts and prayers go out to his family,
    He meant alot to the team as well as vancouver!
    RIP LUC BOURDON.

  76. K says – reply to this


    76

    That's awful news. As an Oiler fan, I do recall Bourdon in a match up or two between the two teams. I also watched this kid in the 2006 world juniors and 2007 as well. But you don't wish this to happen on your worst enemy's team. RIP buddy.

  79. joeblo says – reply to this


    79

    @ #9 Alexis… i'm sure he was wearing a helmet, in Canada they are mandatory in all provinces, unlike the States where it's optional in many places, which amazes me since it's such common sense, then again in the states seatbelts weren't even mandatory in all states either until recent years, that is even if they are now?

    TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO THINK MOTORCYCLES ARE THE REASON THAT SO MANY PEOPLE ARE KILLED IN MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS:

    THE PEOPLE RIDING THE MOTORCYCLES ARE NOT THE PROBLEM

    THE IDIOTS DRIVING IN CARS,TRUCKS,SUV'S AND SO FORTH ARRREEE THE PROBLEM!!!!! IF PEOPLE ON THE ROAD WERE MORE AWARE AND CAUTIOUS THERE WOULD BE FARRR LESS ACCIDENTS!!!!!!!!!!!

    I KNOW SOMEONE WHO WAS KILLED ON A MOTORCYCLE BY A DRUNK DUMB ASS UNDER-AGE GIRL WHO PULLED OUT IN FRONT OF HIM ONLY ALLOWING HIM 3 FEET TO TRY AND STOP!!!!!!!
    HE WASN'T HURTING ANYONE
    HE WAS NOT SPEEDING
    HE WAS WEARING A HELMET
    HE WAS OUT HAVING A SAFE QUICK RIDE AND A IDIOT TEENAGER TOOK THAT AWAY FROM HIM!!!!!

    DO NOT BLAME THE PERSON ON THE MOTORCYCLE FOR ENJOYING THEIR LIFE

    BLAME THE MORONS IN THE CARS WHO HAVE NO RESPECT FOR THE PEOPLE ON THE MOTORCYCLES AND SHOW NO CAUTION

    AND FOR ALL YOU PEOPLE WHO KEEP POSITNG

    "I BET HE WASNT WEARING A HELMET"

    SCREW YOU!!!!!!!!
    WERE YOU THERE?

    THANKS!

    Re: Alexis
    You're a moron. Who are you to presume that he wasn't wearing a helmet? Way to disrespect the dead.

    I am a die hard fan of the Canucks, and when I woke up to this news this morning, I was utterly heartbroken and cried for a good hour. I had the pleasure of meeting Luc Bourdon when he was still playing junior hockey. He was a very kind, friendly, funny, down-to-earth person He will be sorely missed.

    Rest in peace, Luc. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Bourdon family.
