Jean Bourcier and his younger brother Conrad both made it to the NHL and realized their boyhood dreams of playing for the Montreal Canadiens. And what made it even more special was that the brothers dressed for the Habs during the same season, in 1935-36 when Jean Bourcier was called upon for nine games and Conrad suited up for six. It was the only games of their NHL careers, but certainly the highlight for each.
In comparison to his brother, Jean Bourcier seemed to have been blessed with more natural talent than his younger brother and his additional size was of benefit as well. Bourcier was a gifted goal scorer in the minors but in the NHL he was shut down quite effectively during his short stint in the league.
With the exception of an 18-game stint in Pittsburgh in 1935-36, Bourcier played his entire pro career exclusively in Verdun, primarily with the Maple Leafs although he did dress for 18 games with the Bulldogs in 1939-40. Bourcier retired from competition in 1941.
