Bourque generated an assist and two hits in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Oilers.
Bourque's helper on a Logan Shaw tally in the second period snapped a 26-game point drought for the 29-year-old winger. It's been a rough season in general for Bourque, who has just six points to go with 123 hits and 33 shots in 51 contests in his first year as a Jet. He also entered Saturday averaging a career-low 8:44 of ice time per game, a minute less than what he saw while with the Avalanche last year.
Bourque was held off the scoresheet against Chicago on Sunday, his 20th straight game without a point.
Considering Bourque is averaging 7:19 of ice time over that stretch, it shouldn't come as a shock he hasn't been able to register a point. Additionally, the winger has put just nine shots on goal in those 20 contests, further decreasing his chances of scoring. The Quebec native has dished out 43 hits during his offensive slump, which is about the only fantasy value he can provide.
Bourque logged just 8:17 of ice time versus the Canadiens on Monday.
Given his limited minutes, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Bourque managed just four hits, one block and zero shots. The winger is far from a lock for the lineup and could face challenges from Logan Shaw and Jansen Harkins.
Bourque notched an assist in Sunday's 7-3 victory over the Flyers.
Bourque is averaging just 7:53 of ice time in three games back from a lower-body issue. The winger won't see much in terms of minutes in a bottom-six role but figures to get a slight bump due to Mathieu Perreault's (concussion) potential absence.
Bourque (lower body) had one shot on goal and two hits in Tuesday's 5-1 win over Detroit.
Bourque received 9:25 of ice time in his first action following a 14-game injury absence. The 29-year-old fourth-liner has one goal and two assists in 17 games in his first season with the Jets. He is not a fantasy option.
Bourque (lower body) will be in action versus the Red Wings on Tuesday, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.
Bourque figures to slot into a fourth-line role alongside Nick Shore and Logan Shaw while Joona Luoto gets relegated to the press box. Prior to getting hurt, Bourque was rolling with a three-game point streak, but has been sidelined for the last 14 games and will no doubt have some rust to shake off.
Bourque (lower body) has been cleared for contact, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.
Bourque won't suit up Sunday against Anaheim, but he's getting closer to a return. Look for him to get back to practice soon, with a return to game action possibly looming sometime in the next week.
Bourque will be sidelined for at least a month due to a lower-body injury, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Bourque had just hit his stride prior to the injury, collecting three points in the last three games after failing to tally a point in the first 13 contests. The Jets also lost Bryan Little (head) to injury Thursday, prompting the team to recall Joona Luto from AHL Manitoba for depth up front.
Bourque scored a goal on two shots in Friday's 3-2 win over the Sharks.
The tally was Bourque's first point of the year, set up by Kyle Connor while the Jets were in the midst of a line change. The 29-year-old winger has posted 42 hits in 14 appearances this season, but without much offense, he won't be worth a look in fantasy formats.
Bourque has averaged a mere 10:06 of ice time in 11 appearances this season.
While a consistent spot in the lineup is certainly an improvement compared to last year when Bourque played just 55 games for Colorado, the winger isn't getting a lot of opportunities, in part due to the fact that the Jets have consistently trailed in games and needed their big guns on the ice to try and score. Considering he managed just one shot in the last five contests, fantasy owners shouldn't be banking on offensive output from the 29-year-old.
Bourque signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Jets on Monday.
Bourque drew into 55 games with the Avalanche last season, notching two goals and eight points while posting a plus-3 rating. The 28-year-old winger will likely take on a similar role with his new club in 2019-20, and won't produce much offense, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to have him on their radar.
Bourque scored a goal and delivered five hits in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Sharks in Game 1 of the conference semifinals.
The fourth-line winger hadn't registered a point in his last seven games, and he hadn't scored in his last 10 outings before beating Martin Jones in the first period. He does have 17 hits in six postseason games, but without point production, Bourque is unlikely to carry much fantasy value.
Bourque's second goal of the season was the decisive tally in a 4-3 win over the Golden Knights.
Bourque has made 50 appearances this season, posting only two goals and five helpers in that span. With a season average of 9:49 of ice time entering the night, Bourque has not received many chances to improve on his modest production.
Bourque suited up in four games and was a healthy scratch six times in January.
Bourque couldn't notch a point in four outings and averaged just 9:52 of ice time. He also fired just two shots on net in that span and worked on the second power-play unit once. He's in line to suit up Saturday versus the Canucks, but that could change if the Avalanche elevate forwards from AHL Colorado.
Bourque has averaged a paltry 9:26 of ice time in his last 10 games.
Bourque even served as a healthy scratch for a game during that 10-game stretch and has managed a lone assist. Perhaps more concerning for the coaching staff is his minus-5 rating, which could result in his utilization going down even further.
Bourque failed to record a point in Tuesday's 5-2 loss in Columbus.
Bourque's career high in points came back in 2013-14 when he tallied 26 as a member of the Predators. The shot on goal in Tuesday's contest was his first of the season, and as a result, it's probably best to avoid Bourque in all formats.
Bourque agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Colorado on Thursday.
After spending the bulk of the 2016-17 campaign in the minors, Bourque logged 58 games for the Avalanche this season. The 27-year-old tallied five goals, six assists and 44 shots, while averaging 10:54 of ice time. While the winger probably won't be filling a top-six role any time soon, if he can earn additional minutes, he could offer decent depth value in deeper formats -- especially in terms of hits and blocks, which he accrued in spades last year (123 and 59, respectively).
Bourque finished with 11 points in 58 regular-season games, and he uncorked two goals in the playoffs to cap off his seventh NHL campaign in 2017-18.
Bourque's output isn't all that exciting from a fantasy perspective, but he did give the Avs some hopeful moments with the pair of playoff goals in back-to-back games against his former employer. The 27-year-old will be able to hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Bourque failed to score a goal for the 17th consecutive game during Sunday's 5-1 win over Detroit.
Offense has never been Bourque's calling card at the highest level. He's recorded just five goals and five assists through 48 games for the campaign, and his 39.0 Corsi For percentage also highlights his five-on-five struggles. It wouldn't be shocking if he was the odd man out of the lineup once Colin Wilson (concussion) is ready to return, either.
Bourque scored a goal through 15:18 of ice time during Sunday's 5-4 win over the Sabres.
The tally improved the veteran winger to five goals and seven points through 31 games for the campaign. While Bourque projects to remain in a bottom-six role, it's definitely worth noting that he's now marked the goal column in three of his past four outings. He's still off the fantasy grid in the majority of setups, though.
