The de­tails

The Province - - SPORTS | HOCKEY -

Name: Brock Boeser Age: 20

Canucks Prospects Rank­ing: 1 Last sea­son: Boeser over­came wrist surgery to put up 16 goals in 32 games with the Univer­sity of North Dakota. He car­ried that pace into the NHL and had four goals in nine games with the Canucks to end the sea­son.

The skinny: Boeser has been a scor­ing ma­chine in col­lege and he has skills that are trans­lat­able in the NHL, in­clud­ing a re­ally ac­cu­rate shot, which we saw in Van­cou­ver in April. The only real ques­tion for Boeser is when he’s go­ing to ar­rive for good with the Canucks. Some think the Canucks want to wait half a sea­son, to give him some sea­son­ing in Utica. If he scores at all in the pre-sea­son, how­ever, that plan would likely be turfed to start the Boeser era.
