Bourque named MVP as Hershey repeats its Calder Cup title

Chris Bourque and the Hershey Bears repeated as AHL Calder Cup champs, eliminating the Texas Stars, 4-0, in game six. Bourque, who now has played on three Calder Cup champions, led the Bears in post-season scoring with a 7-20-27 line and was named MVP of the Calder Cup playoffs.

Playing for BU in 2004-05, Bourque earned MVP honors in the Beanpot, scoring the game-winner (video) in overtime against Northeastern.

Looking back
Former Terrier standout Joe Sacco, now head coach of the Colorado Avalanche, is among three finalists for the Jack Adams Award who are profiled by NHL.com.

New England Hockey Journal reported on Tony Amonte's appointment at Thayer Academy's head coach and Shawn McEachern's appointment by The Rivers School.

Looking ahead
One of our readers forwarded an article from a few months back about the exercise regimen followed by 2010 recruit and "workout fanatic" Charlie Coyle. Coyle, who excelled at the recent NHL combine in Toronto, should love the time he’ll spend in Mike Boyle’s state-of-the-art strength and conditioning facility at Agganis Arena.

Two of the nhl.com mock drafts have Coyle being selected by Anaheim late in the first round of the 2010 entry draft. Hockeysfuture.com profile.

in my very humble opinion, I think that Bourque is one of the best hockey players I have seen playing and that is not surprise he was named the MVP
