Roger Bourbonnais

Born on October 26, 1942 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Roger Bourbonnais was the captain of the 1963 Memorial Cup champion Edmonton Oil Kings. From there, Bourbonnais became a member of Father David Bauer's Canadian National Team from the time of its inception in 1963-64, until the team withdrew from international competition after 1969. During that time, Bourbonnais, a forward, played at two Olympic Winter Games and four times at the IIHF World Championship tournament. He won a bronze medal at the Grenoble Olympics in 1968, after having played for bronze medal winning teams in the 1964, 1966 and 1967 IIHF World Championships. Bourbonnais was one of the top offensive talents and generally ranked among the team's top scorers at all major international events. Gifted academically as well as on the ice, Roger Bourbonnais chose to pursue a successful law career instead of turning professional.
