Bourque hits 600 points

Chris Bourque has become the 46th player in American Hockey League history with 600 career regular-season points, reaching the milestone with an assist in Hershey’s 6-2 loss to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins Saturday night.

Bourque has totaled 206 goals and 394 assists for 600 points in 606 games with Hershey, Hartford, Providence and Portland. The 12th-year pro won AHL MVP honors in 2015-16 and has captured two scoring titles (2011-12, 2015-16), three Calder Cup championships (2006, 2009, 2010) and one postseason MVP award (2010). Bourque has also played in four AHL All-Star Classics and has been named a First Team AHL All-Star three times.

In addition to his 600 regular-season points, Bourque ranks among the AHL’s all-time postseason leaders with 78 assists (2nd) and 107 points (5th) in 121 Calder Cup Playoff games played (4th).

Originally a second-round draft choice by Washington in 2004, Bourque has recorded two goals and six assists in 51 career NHL games with Washington, Pittsburgh and Boston.
