Claude Hennessey Bourque (born March 31, 1915 in Oxford, Nova Scotia) is a retired professional ice hockey goaltender who played 62 games in the National Hockey League. He played with the Montreal Canadiens and Detroit Red Wings.

He played amateur hockey in Moncton, New Brunswick, culminating in 1932-33 when he played for the junior Moncton Red Indians who won the 1932-33 Maritimes Junior Playoffs. He then played two seasons for the Montreal Junior Canadiens. After that Bourque played three seasons in the Quebec Senior Hockey League.

The Montreal Canadiens called him up in the 1938-39 season and kept him around for 1939-40. The team was very weak at the time and Bourque did not have much success. He was loaned to the Detroit Red Wings for one game.

He was traded to the New York Rangers in 1940 but was stuck in the minors and never played in the NHL again. He played two seasons in the American Hockey League and one in the Quebec Senior Hockey League and retired in 1943.
