SHIPPAGAN, N.B. - A small-town New Brunswick arena was transformed into a makeshift chapel on Sunday as thousands paid their respects to Luc Bourdon Jack Butler Jersey , a 21-year-old rising National Hockey League star killed in a motorcycle crash on Thursday.Mourners filed past Bourdon's coffin in the middle of the rink where he once played hockey as a boy and offered their condolences to Bourdon's family."It's just right now really, really quiet," said Gilles Cormier from inside the arena during Sunday's visitation."Everybody is stunned T J Watt Jersey ."Cormier manages the rink and also coached Bourdon for a year in minor hockey."We offered the rink as a chapel and it was the family's decision," he said."(Bourdon's Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey mother) said yes because that was his life, he was always here and that's where he'd want to be right now."Cormier estimated more than two-thousand people came to pay tribute to the Vancouver Canucks defenceman on Sunday, with hundreds lining up outside the arena at some points.Cormier said Bourdon's close friend, Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman Kris Letang, arrived at the rink after flying in from Pittsburgh.More NHLers are expected to attend Bourdon's funeral, to be held Monday afternoon in the arena after a second Mike Wagner Jersey visitation in the morning.
