Luc Bourdon, a promising defenceman with the NHL's Vancouver Canucks, was killed Thursday afternoon when his motorcycle struck a tractor-trailer in his native northern New Brunswick.

Bourdon's sister, Eve Bourdon, and his stepmother Maryse Godin both confirmed the death but declined further comment when reached at the family's home in Shippagan.

"Luc was a winner, he was a competitor," said Kent Hughes, his agent. "There was no quit in him. He persevered through a lot. He was a great guy and a great teammate."

RCMP in Shippagan wouldn't confirm the identity of the victim but said the driver of a motorcycle was killed at about 12:30 p.m. AT in crash on a road between Shippagan and Lemeque, N.B.

Bourdon, 21, was the first-round pick of the Canucks, 10th overall, in the 2005 NHL draft.

He split time this season with the Canucks and the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League. In 27 games with the Canucks, he scored twice but had no assists.

Bourdon was a member of the Canadian team that won gold at the 2006 world junior hockey championship in Vancouver and was named to the tournament all-star team.

He helped Canada win another gold at the 2007 world juniors in Sweden.

Bourdon played for Val d'Or, Moncton and Cape Breton of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League before turning pro.

Judging by the pictures of the crash scene it was a catostophic crash, the front end of the truck was ripped apart motorcycle parts everywhere. Horrible absolutely horrible. Now they figure a gust of wind blew him in front of the truck.. Poor guy never stood a chance...

yeah, thats it.. blame the motorcycle..sure, right.

Fortin noted it was windy on Thursday and a sudden gust may have pushed Bourdon into the truck's path.

ROTFL so at least this idiot cop can confirm he has never been on a bike..


no, a young guy with no experience jumps on bike that is way too powerful for him,
loses it in a tight turn, drifts into a tractor-trailer, and guess who loses..

tragic, but it wasnt the bike..

It is never the bike. It is always in your right hand. The bike does nothing without someone on it. Geesh, it is just like a computer... [/sarcasm]

I am sorry to hear a young guy died in a motorcycle crash (AGAIN).

But when I see people riding the way they do... :roll:

When its your time...its your time...why live in fear and not do the things you want in life. Either you live your life to the fullest and enjoy every moment or live a life afraid of every little thing and die with regrets. Im sure Luc was having the time of his life...

A bike is like a gun, just another piece of equipment and they do not kill people, people kill people with these things.

The sarcasm I used was for the last sentence. A computer doesn't screw up either. People screw up.
