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

Canucks D-man Bourdon killed
Luc had a very promising rookie year. He would have most likely had a great career in the NHL.
After which he would be financially set for life with not much to do but have fun and be toasted by everyone for having a great career.
Instead he STUPIDLY threw it all away by riding a motorcycle.
Now thats an idiot.
