Joseph Alain Michaël Bournival (born May 31, 1992) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing under contract to the Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit]

Bournival was drafted 7th overall by the Shawinigan Cataractes in the 2008 QMJHL Entry Draft. After completing his second season with 62 points in 58 games, Bournival was selected by the Colorado Avalanche in the 3rd round (71st overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. On November 11, 2010, the Avalanche traded Bournival to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Ryan O'Byrne.[1]

During his final season in 2011–12 as captain with the Shawinigan Cataractes, Bournival was signed to a three-year entry level contract with the Canadiens on December 21, 2011.[2] In 2012, the Cataractes won their first Memorial Cup.

On October 17, 2013, Bournival scored his first NHL goal against the Columbus Blue Jackets in a 5-3 victory game at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec.[3]

At the conclusion of the 2015–16 season, having been unable to return to the NHL, Bournival was not tendered a qualifying offer by the Canadiens and was released to free agency. On July 1, 2016, Bournival was signed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning.[4] On January 12, 2017, Bournival skated in his 100th career NHL game, which came in a 4-2 Lightning win over the Buffalo Sabres.[5]
