Bourque II?

Sources have told the THFBlog that Ryan Bourque, younger brother of Chris, was a recent visitor to the BU campus. Ryan is a sophomore at Cushing Academy this season, where he'll be a teammate of 2008 BU recruit David Warsofsky and 2008 recruiting target Matt White.

A 1991 birthdate and just 5-5, 135 lbs, Bourque was the 2nd leading scorer at the recent National Select 15 Festival and one of the top forwards there, according to one observer:
Strengths: excellent vision and precise passing; extremely competitive; a very quick stick. Plays a smart, thinking man’s game, without the chippiness his brother displayed. He’ll be an excellent college hockey player. A potential first-line forward.

Will he become a future Terrier ? It remains to be seen.

Let's hope this current crop of Cushing players have a little more smarts than Chris B. and Keith Yandle did!
