Rene Bourque will be a healthy scratch Monday night against Detroit.

Bourque has not fit in with the Ducks this season even after receiving numerous chances to play alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. He's played in 29 games with the Ducks this year after being traded by Montreal but has not found his game posting two goals and six assists. Monday will be his second consecutive scratching.

Rene Bourque will come out of the Ducks' lineup on Saturday.

The 33-year-old has just two goals and six points in 21 games since being acquired from Montreal.

Tim Jackman will the lineup in his place.

Rene Bourque, Mark Fistric and Colby Robak are healthy scratches in Sunday's game against Winnipeg.

Bourque has two goals and six points in 19 games since joining the Ducks earlier this season. Fistric has no points in nine games this season. Robak is also pointless in 11 games.
Jan 11 - 10:04 PM

Rene Bourque will stay on top lin Wednesday night against the New York Rangers.

Coach Boudreau said he liked what he saw of Bourque- Ryan Getzlaf - Corey Perry after Bourque assisted on Corey Perry's second period tally on Sunday. So they'll go at it again. Hedge your bets.
Jan 7 - 8:51 PM

Rene Bourque will tag back in for Devante Smith-Pelly Sunday night against the Nashville Predators.

Even if he does line up with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, Bourque still doesn't have much fantasy value. In 13 games with the Ducks he has just two points and little else to show for his efforts.
Jan 4 - 7:53 PM

Rene Bourque was back on the top line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry in practice.

Talk about from the outhouse to the penthouse. Bourque had been a healthy scratch in Anaheim's last two games. I liked what he brought again today," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "I thought his energy was pretty good." Bourque has two goals and seven points in 30 games this season with Anaheim and Montreal but his fantasy value could be a lot higher if he can stick on the top line.
Jan 4 - 5:48 AM

Rene Bourque, Colby Robak, and Mark Fistric will all sit against the Blues on Friday night.

Unfortunately, none of them have any fantasy value.
Jan 2 - 8:52 PM

Rene Bourque netted a goal for the Ducks in their 2-1 shootout loss to the Coyotes on Saturday night.

Bourque scored just his second goal of the year, and tallied his seventh point. He should be far off fantasy radars. Ryan Getzlaf and Devante Smith-Pelly picked up the helpers.

Rene Bourque had his first multi-point game as an Anaheim Duck when he collected two assists in their 4-2 win over Edmonton on Friday night.

They were both nice helpers too, including the first one which was on the power play. Bourque now has four points in ten games with Anaheim.

Rene Bourque has only one point in seven games with the Anaheim Ducks.

He was given the opportunity to play on the top line Friday with Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf but that chance went awry when Perry was injured in the first period and Getzlaf played with two different wingers. Bourque played a team-low 8:39 and failed to see the scoresheet. He may be worth a flier in the deepest of pools as he has scored 27 goals in a season twice in his career.

Rene Bourque is expected to play on Anaheim's top line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry when they skate in Minnesota on Friday night.

Bourque has just one point, an assist, in his first six games as a Duck. If there's a way to start catching fire, Coach Boudreau is giving Bourque a golden opportunity.

Rene Bourque will get his first taste of Anaheim flavored hockey Sunday night against Arizona.

Bourque was acquired from Montreal on Thursday for defenseman Bryan Allen. He has just 18 points over his last 76 games, including two in 13 this season. Thuogh he does have four goals and 13 points in 21 career games against the Coyotes.

Rene Bourque is happy to be a member of the Anaheim Ducks.

Bourque is just happy to be back in the NHL after the Canadiens sent him to the minors a couple of weeks ago and then dealt him to Anaheim for Bryan Allen on Thursday. "I’m very excited," Bourque said. "I think I was looking to be moved after everything went down in Montreal so it was nice to get a good change to a new team. I think I have a lot left. And I think I have a lot to give to this team." Bourque will be a game-time decision on Sunday as coach Bruce Boudreau has seen him in one practice, but the Ducks could certainly use the two-time former 27 goal scorer, returning to form.
