Chris Bourque Career

Playing career

Bourque was born in Boston but grew up in Topsfield, Massachusetts, and graduated from Cushing Academy in 2004. Keith Yandle was close friends at the time while he was there. He was drafted 33rd overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Washington Capitals and spent with the Portland Pirates and Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League (AHL) before being called up to the league in November 2007. He appeared in four NHL games before being reassigned to Hershey in February 2008.

Bourque scored his first NHL goal against the Buffalo Sabres on December 30, 2008. He was released off waivers by the Pittsburgh Penguins on September 30, 2009, and he had his first NHL assist on October 28, 2009, beating the Montreal Canadiens 6–1. He was waived by the Penguins and recovered by his former team, the Washington Capitals, on December 5, 2009. He was then sent back to the Bears, where he stayed for the majority of the season. Bourque led the league in scoring with 27 points in winning the Jack A. Butterfield Trophy in 2010.

Bourque refused to sign the qualifying offer extended by Washington in mid-July 2010 and signed to play with Atlant Moscow Oblast of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) for the 2010–11 season. Bourque had previously agreed to a two-year deal with the team, worth US$1 million per year, but the deal was not signed until July 15, 2010. Bourque left the team on October 3, 2010 after a rough start with Atlant Moscow Oblast.

HC Lugano, a Swiss hockey team, reported that they had signed Bourque to a deal on October 4, 2010.

Bourque decided to re-sign with the Capitals on a one-year deal on July 2, 2011. Bourque was drafted by the Capitals to the Hershey Bears and led the league in scoring in 73 games in 2011. Bourque was traded by the Capitals to the Boston Bruins for forward Zach Hamill on May 26, 2012. In a 1–0 road game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on February 2, Chris scored his first goal as a Bruin.

Bourque returned to the KHL on June 18, 2013 after signing a one-year contract with Ak Bars Kazan. Bourque matched his previous short-lived stint in the KHL by moving to Swiss club EHC Biel for the remainder of the season.

Bourque returned to the NHL on July 1, 2014 after committing to a one-year two-way contract with the New York Rangers. Bourque was voted to the Hartford Wolf Pack, the Hartford Wolf Pack's AHL affiliate, for the 2014–15 season, and was the team's first All-Star team.

Bourque signed a two-year, two-way deal with the Washington Capitals on July 2, 2015. Bourque, who was signed to the Hershey Bears for the 2015-16 season, led his team in scoring in 72 games for his third AHL first All-Star team. Bourque was crowned the Most Valuable Player of the AHL on April 15, 2016, which was announced on April 15, 2016. Bourque was a vital part of Hershey's playoff campaign, when the Lake Erie Monsters ultimately lost the Calder Cup Finals.

Bourque's long-tenured relationship with the Bears came to an end, with the two-year contract with Hershey extending to an optional two-year contract.

Bourque left as a free agent and as the AHL's top scorer after his eighth season with the Bears in 2017-18. On July 9, 2018, he reuniting with his brother, Ryan, after he agreed to a one-year contract with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, the New York Islanders' affiliate.

Bourque, a free agent for the first time in 5 years, returned to the United States for the first time in five years, signing a one-year deal with German club EHC München of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL). He spent three years in the DEL, culminating his time with ERC Ingolstadt in Germany in the 2021–22 season.

Bourque announced his retirement from professional hockey after 17 seasons on April 30, 2022. The Hershey Bears announced later that his #17 jersey would play in nine seasons with the team, and that it would be retired on January 14, 2023.
