Rangers prospect Ryan Bourque got his second major-junior season off to a fast start on Friday night when he scored three points in the Quebec Remparts' 4-1 win over Chicoutimi in preseason QMJHL action.

Ryan Bourque
Less than two weeks after returning from the USA National Junior Evaluation camp in Lake Placid, N.Y., Bourque was back in Quebec for the team's first preseason game. Serving as one of four alternate captains for the Remparts, who have yet to name a captain for 2010-11, Bourque earned No. 2 Star honors on the strength of his goal and two assists.

Bourque began his big night with an assist on the game's first goal at 15:15 of the opening period. He then went on to give the Remparts a 2-0 lead at 7:31 of the second with the eventual game-winner, and closed out his evening with an assist at 7:03 of the third.

Selected by the Rangers in the third round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Bourque will leave Quebec for New York next month to take part in the team's training camp. He is also on the Rangers' roster for the Traverse City (Mich.) Prospects Tournament.

Quebec also played a preseason game on Sunday, but Bourque was not in the Remparts' lineup as the team has several players to evaluate, and Bourque is already an established player.

Last season -- his first in major-junior hockey -- Bourque recorded 43 points in 44 regular-season games and 10 points in nine playoff games. He also helped Team USA win the World Junior Championship gold medal in Saskatchewan and is expected to make that squad again for the 2011 World Junior tournament in Buffalo.
