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.

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.
Good stuff. Bourque's winning entry can be seen here.

Kid's got good form in net...

Especially loved the "imagine a world without hockey" flashback.

Good on the Ceeb for bringing the cup to the Borque household.

Unlike a different Bourque, this guy didn't even have to move to Denver to get his hands on the Cup.
