Sad news: Canucks' Luc Bourdon dead at 21

(Bourdon and Letang celebrating)

Reports are surfacing about the sad motorcycle accident that has suddenly and shockingly taken 21 year old Vancouver Canucks defensemen Luc Bourdon. Certainly our thoughts and condolences are with Bourdon's family and friends in this rough time.

Hockey, especially professionally, is such a tight-knit community that this affects someone everywhere you look. Pittsburgh's Kris Letang was very good friends with Bourdon. They were teammates in the QMJHL with the Val d'Or Foreurs and several times with Team Canada and they shared the same agent. Letang apparently kept in somewhat regular touch, as he knew of the motorcycle hobby that Bourdon reportedly just picked up in the past week or so.

Sad, sad times for everyone.
