Top Canucks prospect Luc Bourdon has been killed in a motorcycle accident.
Early reports came out of the French media, and are now appearing in Vancouver media.
The accident occurred just outside of Shippagan, N.B., where Bourdon was from. He was 21.
A first-round pick, 10th overall in 2005, Bourdon played 27 games in Vancouver this season on the blueline and spent another 41 with the Manitoba Moose in the AHL. He played for Team Canada at the world junior championship in 2006 and 2007.
