Luc Bourdon’s Birthday wish !

Today is Luc Bourdon’s birthday.

As many of you know or those who do not, Luc was a best friend of Kris, and on May 29, 2008 he died in a motorcycle accident. It was an extremely tragic event to happen during the 2008 Stanley Cup playoffs, in which the Penguins and Kris were competing in. So comes this post, which is not to reflect on that time but instead it is to celebrate his birthday and life.

I read many beautiful tributes for him all over the internet and was touched by an exceptionally written one from a fan.
