From the NHLPA:

The National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) announced today that $115,000 has been raised in honour of the late Luc Bourdon. All proceeds raised will support scholarships and various youth-related initiatives through the establishment of the Luc Bourdon Memorial Fund.

“NHLPA members have shown exceptional support in paying tribute to Luc Bourdon, who was a great friend to many,” said Paul Kelly, NHLPA Executive Director. “The significant impact Luc’s life had on his fellow players is evident by the success of the players’ efforts to raise this money. The proceeds raised will further honour Luc through the Memorial Fund in his name.”

$55,000 was raised by the NHLPA’s online eBay auction; $50,000 from some of the proceeds from the SuperSkills event in Vancouver a few weeks ago; and another $10,000 contributed from the NHLPA.

Bourdon’s mother Suzanne Boucher will be officially instituting the Luc Bourdon Memorial Fund later this year.
