The Washington Capitals acquired forward Ryan Bourque from the New York Rangers for Chris Brown.
It's a minor trade. Bourque has spent the season with the AHL's Hartford Wolfpack. The 25-year-old has 10 goals and 24 points in 55 AHL games this season. The trade to the Capitals doesn't give Bourque any fantasy value going forward. He'll probably continue to play in the minors unless the Caps run into more injury trouble. Bourque's brother, Chris, also plays for Washington's AHL affiliate. Sun, Feb 28, 2016 10:23:00 PM

Ryan Bourque practiced on the fourth line Friday.

Bourque replaced Tanner Glass who was given a maintenance day off. If Glass is unable to go Saturday, look for Bourque to make his first start in the 2015 playoffs. "I think you just prepare every day like you’re in," Bourque said. "It’s a little bit of a different situation than I've been in, being one of the extras. But it’s been a really good learning experience. I’m taking it day by day and enjoying the process."

Ryan Bourque potted a goal as Connecticut defeated Hershey on Friday 3-1.

After two great seasons in the QMJHL, Bourque's production (14 points) in the AHL last year was a huge disappointment, so getting off good start is a nice sign for the Rangers. Matt Gilroy, Christian Thomas and Kyle Jean each had assists.
