Goffstown’s Bourque heads UNH hockey recuiting list

Goffstown native Collin Bourque headlines the incoming recruiting class for the University of New Hampshire men’s ice hockey team. Bourque, a 5-foot-7, 155-pound forward, played for the New England Wolves of the America East Hockey League. He led his team in scoring with 36 goals and 78 assists for 114 points in 55 games last season.

Bourque helped the Wolves capture the AEHL Championship in its inaugural season. The coaches of the league named Bourque Player of the Year. He was also named to the league’s first team.

One of Bourque’s assistant coaches with the Wolves is Jon Fontas, captain of the 1978 University of New Hampshire men’s ice hockey team and a member of the UNH Hockey Hall of Fame. Bourque played four years with Cushing Academy in Ashburnham, Mass.
