Bourque, the team captain, suffered the injury on Wednesday in a game with Vancouver. He returned to Boston and was examined today by Dr. Bertram Zarins. Bourque said the injury occurred in the first period against Vancouver. He was up along the boards and his right arm was pulled up and out in an awkward position.

Former Boston Bruin defenseman Ray Bourque may have won his Stanley Cup with the Colorado Avalanche, but there was no doubt his heart remained in Boston. There were emotional scenes when Bourque carried the trophy around the ice after the Avalanche won the title last June. Bourque's return to Boston was less emotional and more frenzied. Bourque, who played for the Bruins from 1979-2000, had his No. 77 retired by the Bruins in a ceremony before Thursday's season opener.

He's 40 years old and the feel-good story of the Stanley Cup finals. He has played 22 NHL seasons and has never won a championship. He's also concerned that he has become a tad overexposed. "Probably like a lot of people I'm getting a little tired of hearing about Ray Bourque, Ray Bourque, Ray Bourque this and Ray Bourque that," Colorado defenseman Ray Bourque admitted Sunday, a day after helping the Avalanche to a 5-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils in Game 1.

Ray Bourque, his quest for the Stanley Cup realized, will retire today at a scheduled news conference. A source close to Bourque told the Associated Press on Monday that the Colorado Avalanche defenseman will announce his retirement after 22 NHL seasons. The Avalanche said only that Bourque will make an announcement about his hockey career. While the team would not reveal what Bourque, 40, planned to announce, the Denver Post said Bourque will retire, primarily for family reasons.

Edmonton's Mark Messier stepped out of Wayne Gretzky's shadow Wednesday night by winning the Hart Trophy as the NHL's most valuable player--an award dominated by his former teammate in the 1980s. Messier beat out Boston defenseman Ray Bourque by two points in the closest balloting ever for the trophy. St. Louis right wing Brett Hull was the other finalist for the award that Gretzky won eight times with Edmonton and last year with the Kings.

Ray Bourque, one game shy of the record for most games played as a Boston Bruin, scored the game winner and assisted on the only other goal as the Bruins beat the Florida Panthers, 2-0, Tuesday night at Boston. It was Bourque's 1,435th game. San Jose 4, Phoenix 2--Bryan Marchment, Owen Nolan and Mike Ricci scored third-period goals and Steve Shields had a quiet night in net, facing only 15 shots, as the Sharks beat the slumping Coyotes at San Jose.

Ray Bourque is 40 years old and he dreams he is skating with the Stanley Cup held firmly in his grasp. He stops to kiss it, raises it above his head and a roaring crowd celebrates his long-awaited, much-anticipated victory lap. In fact, Ray Bourque is 40 years old and he has never touched the Stanley Cup. He has seen it plenty of times, sure, but he has never laid a finger on it.

The Philadelphia Flyers left with a 3-0 victory and maybe a chance at Ray Bourque too. Eric Lindros returned to the lineup with a goal and an assist on Saturday as the Flyers defeated the Boston Bruins, 3-0, at Boston in what might have been Bourque's last game as a Bruin. The Flyers are among the teams rumored to be bidding for the 18-time All-Star and five-time Norris Trophy winner. "Who wouldn't want him?

Ray Bourque finally got his hands on the Stanley Cup, accepting it from Colorado Avalanche captain Joe Sakic a nanosecond after Sakic took it from NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. Bourque gave it a long, loving smooch at center ice, then set off on a victory skate that was 22 seasons in the making. At that electric moment, after the Avalanche had finally subdued the New Jersey Devils with a 3-1 victory in the deciding Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, there wasn't a dry eye on the ice.
