Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Bouchard moved around a LOT in his career, not just in who he played for in his NHL career, but with their respective
minor league affiliates. So his tenure in the Devils' organization was just a blip on the radar. Besides the assist in his
only game in New Jersey, he scored 31 points in 70 games with the Albany River Rats.

Lemme see, besides the Devils... he started with the Flames... in order after that, Nashville, Dallas, Phoenix, then the
year with Devils, then came the Rangers, Pittsburgh, Rangers again, and finished with the Islanders, although he did
play in the Montreal organization to finish his career in 07-08, but only played for the Hamilton Bulldogs.

He entered broadcasting after he finished playing, joining the RDS team (The French-speaking answer to TSN.) as an
analyst. He also hosted and produced his own show on RDS called L'Académie de hockey McDonald.

He would move to the front office when he was named president and general manager of the Blainville-Boisbriand
Armada of the Q. Although he lost points with a lot of fans with the way he (mis)handled Stefan Matteau.
Entry Draft: 1992 Sixth Round Pick (129th overall) by the
