Bourke recorded two goals and two assists in a 7-4 win against Jacksonville on Tuesday and added the game-winning goal and three assists in a 5-3 victory at South Carolina on Saturday.

Under contract to Syracuse of the American Hockey League, Bourke has 12 points (3g-9a) in four games with the Solar Bears this season while also seeing action in four games with the Crunch.

A native of Edmonton, Alberta, Bourke has posted 55 points (18g-37a) in 37 career ECHL games with Orlando, Adirondack and Fort Wayne and tallied 63 points (24g-39a) in 216 career AHL games with Syracuse, San Antonio and Lake Erie.

Bourke was a third-round selection (#72 overall) by the Colorado Avalanche in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

On behalf of Troy Bourke, a case of pucks will be donated to an Orlando youth hockey organization by Inglasco, the exclusive puck supplier of the ECHL. Since beginning its sponsorship of the award in 2000-01, Inglasco has donated more than 39,000 pucks to youth hockey organizations in ECHL cities.
