Canuck Place Children’s Hospice has seen a flurry of donations since the motorcycle crash in New Brunswick on Thursday that claimed the 21-year-old defenceman’s life. Most of the donation amounts have involved the number 28, the jersey Bourdon wore with the Canucks.

“What are the odds of someone making a $28 or $280 or $2,800 donation out of the blue?” Canuck Place chief executive officer Filomena Nalewajek said yesterday. “This is people’s way of saying we really understand the connection between the Canucks and Canuck Place and this is the way we want to express our grief.”

$7,000 has been donated since yesterday. Visit Canuck Place.org to see what they’re all about.

Also, Canucks.com has a page on the site dedicated to memories of Luc, and provides an email form for fans to send a personal message to his family.
