Ryan Bourque woke up in Sioux Falls, S.D., on Saturday, March 9 thinking about the U.S. National Team Development Program's U18 squad's 8-3 win over Augustana the previous night and how they could duplicate such a feat later that day. His attention was quickly diverted. He got a call from his father, Ray. Then he got one from his brother, Chris. After that came a call from Bill Troy, his academic advisor when he was at Cushing. The message was unexpected. The post What’s next for Cushing? Ryan Bourque’s vision for more success appeared first on New England Hockey Journal ..read more
