(Odessa, TX) – The Odessa Jackalopes announced today that forward Jean Bourbeau has been called up to the team’s AHL affiliate, Bridgeport Sound Tigers.... Odessa received the call Monday morning for Bourbeau to head to Bridgeport, and head coach Paul Gillis notified the Jacks’ forward after the team’s morning practice.

“It’s great,” said Bourbeau, “(Team Captain Kory Karlander) told me to just enjoy it, keep it simple, work hard, and do all the little things and I’ll be fine.”
