Gabriel Bourque (born September 23, 1990) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward who is currently playing with the San Antonio Rampage in the American Hockey League (AHL) as a member of the Colorado Avalanche of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected by the Nashville Predators in the fifth round (132nd overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

Bourque was signed to a three-year entry level contract by the Predators on April 15, 2010.

Gabriel played his first NHL game on December 28, 2011 vs the Minnesota Wild and scored his first NHL career goal on January 5, 2012 vs the Dallas Stars at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville TN.[1]

On April 11, 2012, Gabriel scored his first NHL Stanley Cup playoffs goal when the Predators beat the Detroit Red Wings in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarter-Finals.[2]

In his fifth season within the Predators organization in 2015–16, Bourque was limited to just 22 games due to illness and injury, contributing with just 1 goal and 4 points. As a restricted free agent, Bourque was not tendered a qualifying offer to remain in Nashville, releasing him to free agency. Unable to attain an NHL contract over the off-season, Bourque agreed to attend the Colorado Avalanche training camp on a professional try-out contract on September 1, 2016.[3] After a successful training camp and pre-season Bourque agreed to a contract with the Avalanche in signing a one-year, two-way deal on October 10, 2016.[4]
