Ryan Burke-Hockey Star
OilCan Drive

“When I initially came up with the concept of OilCan Drive the Colorado Avalanche were on their way to winning their second Stanley Cup. So, of course, I had to make a member of the group an ex-Avalanche player.

The name Ryan Burke was a tribute to Ray Borque, ex-Boston Bruin player who had come to Colorado to chase down that elusive Stanley Cup. When the Avs finally won the cup, the tradition is for the captain of the team, Joe Sakic, to hoist the cup first. But, like a true gentleman, he turned, handed the cup to Ray, and let Mr. Borque hoist that trophy sky high.

And, who was there standing next to his dad in his moment of triumph? His son, Ryan Borque.”
