Preds Recall Gabriel Bourque From Milwaukee

Tuesday, 12.27.2011 / 6:22 PM / News
Nashville, Tenn. (December 27, 2011) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Gabriel Bourque (gah-BREE-ehl BOHRK) from Milwaukee (AHL). This is the Rimouski, Que., native’s first career recall – he has yet to appear in an NHL game.

Bourque, 21 (9/23/90), leads the Admirals in assists (14) in 25 games this season, most recently notching three helpers in Milwaukee’s 7-3 victory over Rockford on Monday night. Nashville's ninth choice, 132nd overall (fifth round), in the 2009 Entry Draft ranked third on the Admirals in goals during his rookie pro season in 2010-11, then led Milwaukee in 2011 Calder Cup Playoff goals (7) and points (13), while ranking second on the team in postseason plus/minus (+7).

The 5-10, 192-pound left wing finished off his junior career in 2010 by helping Moncton win the President’s Trophy as QMJHL Champions and advance to the 2010 Memorial Cup, earning the Guy Lafleur Trophy as Playoffs MVP in the process. Bourque earned a silver medal with Canada at the 2010 World Championships, and tied a Team Canada record for points in a World Junior Championship game with seven (3g-4a) in the nation’s opening-game win over Latvia.

The Predators wrap up their December home slate tomorrow night when the Minnesota Wild come calling for a McDonald’s Family 4 Pack game in Smashville (7 p.m., FOX Sports Tennessee, 102.5 the Game). The team closes out their 2011 calendar on Dec. 30 when they take on the division rival St. Louis Blues at the Scottrade Center (7 p.m., FOX Sports Tennessee, 102.5 the Game). The Preds ring in the new year on New Year’s Day when they face the Calgary Flames for a special 5 p.m. start time (FOX Sports Tennessee, 102.5 the Game).
