Alex Bourret (born October 5, 1986) is a Canadian professional ice hockey right winger who is currently an unrestricted free agent. He most recently played for the Wichita Thunder in the ECHL.

Playing career[edit]

His first season in the QMJHL was in the 2002–03 season, where he played with the Sherbrooke Castors. The team moved to Lewiston, Maine the following season. He played the next two seasons with the Lewiston Maineiacs, where he led the team in scoring in the second year, and was selected by Maineiacs fans as the team's most popular player. Wishing to play closer to home, Bourret asked for and received a trade, as the Maineiacs dealt him to the Shawinigan Cataractes in exchange for Stefano Giliati. Bourret's impressive offensive production led to being selected in the first round, 16th overall, of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft by the Atlanta Thrashers. In 2005–06, Bourret once again led his team in scoring, with 114 points.

On February 26, 2007, Bourret was traded to the New York Rangers in exchange for Pascal Dupuis and a 3rd round pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft (Robert Bortuzzo). On June 21, 2008, Bourret was traded to the Coyotes for a third round pick in the 2008 NHL Draft, and after unimpressive work in the AHL released in September, 2009.

On July 7, 2010, after splitting the previous year in Europe and the Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL, Bourret signed one-year deal with High1 of Asia League Ice Hockey. He left the team in November 2010.[1]

On September 28, 2011, the Wichita Thunder of the then CHL announced they had signed Bourret for the 2011–12 season.[2]
