American sportswriter, formerly a professional ice hockey player (AHL's Bridgeport Sound Tigers, 2007-2008), he has additionally coached professionally, most recently as an assistant coach for the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League.
Bourne's writing career began after a serious jaw injury forced him into retirement. In his first year as a columnist for USA Today, his piece on stopping the use of gay slurs in sports encouraged hockey player Brendan Burke to come out as gay and tell his story.
Bourne's father Bob Bourne won the Stanley Cup four times as a centre for the New York Islanders. Justin Bourne is currently married to Brianna, daughter of former NHL all-star Clark Gillies, and resides in Toronto, Ontario.
