Bourque-Cammalleri trade surprises both players

MONTREAL While Canadiens general manager Pierre Gauthier said the trade that sent Mike Cammelleri to Calgary for Rene Bourque was in the works for weeks, Bourque said he hadn’t heard a whisper of it.
So Bourque was just as surprised as Cammalleri was to be summoned mid-game and told he’d been traded.
“Where do you want me to start?” Bourque said on Saturday morning.
“I was on my way to the rink for the game (against Anaheim) and I heard Cammy had been pulled off the ice. I was on the bike to do a workout for the first period and one of the guys came to get me and I knew right away that it was probably for that reason.
“So, yeah, it was pretty surprising.”
