A feel-good story
Adam Bourque wasn’t able to say what he felt when Mark Messier walked over to him with the Stanley Cup held high, but his beaming smile and tear-filled eyes spoke volumes.Good stuff. Bourque's winning entry can be seen here.
Bourque, 28, has a neuromuscular disorder that prevents him from speaking, but his infectious enthusiasm for Canada’s great game earned him top honours in the Bring Home The Stanley Cup contest on CBC’s Hockey Night In Canada.
His prize for winning the contest was a visit on Saturday from Hockey Hall of Famer Mark Messier who showed up at Bourque’s home in Summerside, P.E.I., with the Stanley Cup in tow.
