The Avalanche recalled Bourque from AHL San Antonio on Wednesday.

Bourque will supply the Avalanche with depth up front, but won't be a useful fantasy option, as he's failed to tally a single point while averaging just 10:46 of ice time in five games with Colorado this season. If the 26-year-old winger is able to crack the lineup during his stay with the Avalanche, he'll likely slot into a bottom-six role, and get additional ice time on one of the team's penalty-killing units.
