Bourque, Chamblin and Chris Getzlaf will speak at dinner


The Estevan Bruins have announced the three speakers for their annual Sportsman's Dinner, which is slated for Thursday, April 24 at Affinity Place.

Hockey Hall of Fame defenceman Ray Bourque, Saskatchewan Roughriders head coach Corey Chamblin and Riders receiver Chris Getzlaf will be at the event.

Bourque is the NHL's all-time leader in goals (410), assists (1,169) and points (1,579) among defencemen, and he won five Norris Trophies as the league's top blue-liner. He was voted a first or second-team all-star in each of his first 17 seasons in the NHL, and he was selected to one of those all-star teams 19 times.

While he spent most of his career with the Boston Bruins, Bourque finished by playing a little more than one season with the Colorado Avalanche. He won the Stanley Cup for the only time in his career in 2001, and then retired as a champion.

The image of Bourque finally hoisting the Cup is one of the most beloved in league history.

Chamblin guided the Roughriders to the Grey Cup title in front of their hometown fans in Regina last November, and was named the league's coach of the year a few weeks ago.

After an 11-7 record in the regular season, the Riders won all three of their playoff games, including the Western Final over the Calgary Stampeders and the Grey Cup game over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in lopsided fashion.

Getzlaf has been part of the Rider organization since 2007. He was a West Division all-star in 2012 and 2013, and he was named the top Canadian in the 2013 Grey Cup game, as he caught three passes for 78 yards.

He is also the older brother of NHL star Ryan Getzlaf, who recently won his second straight Olympic gold medal for Team Canada at the 2014 Sochi Games.

There will be numerous items available through live and silent auctions at the event.
