Bourque (back) will miss the rest of the season after undergoing back surgery on Saturday, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

It's disappointing news for Bourque, as he had really started to turn it on of late, scoring three goals and putting 12 shots on net in the last two games he played.
