From Mike Morreale at NHL.com:
Ryan Bourque was just 10 years old when his Hockey Hall of Fame father glided across the ice one last time.
The last impression Bourque had of father in the NHL was 2001, when the old man was taking a lap around Pepsi Center as a member of the Colorado Avalanche with the Stanley Cup raised high above his head after his team had just scored a Game 7 victory against the New Jersey Devils.
Being the son of a legend certainly has its advantages.
“It’s neat more than anything and it hasn’t made things tough for me at all,” Bourque told NHL.com. “Obviously there’s going to be a little adversity, but you learn to deal with it—there are more positives than negatives. It’s great having him there as support and to hear his feedback and just seeing what he does day in and day out; the professionalism he brings to everything he does is great.”
