A Heavier Workload For Brock Boeser

from Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province,

Just when you think Brock Boeser can’t score all the goals, he goes out and does something and you can’t help but wonder.

Maybe he can.

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to overestimate what Boeser can do this season. He is still only months into his NHL career and right now he is the Canucks’ most important player.

He is not only their best goal scorer, he represents their best hope to survive a lengthy stretch of games in which the Canucks will be without Bo Horvat, and, it now seems, Sven Baertschi.

Horvat, as everyone knows, is lost for six weeks with a foot fracture. The news is less clear on Baertschi, but he left the team and returned to Vancouver after taking a puck to the face Saturday night in Calgary. That doesn’t suggest good things and leaves the Canucks without their No. 2 and No. 3 goal scorers.

But No. 1 is still here, and what a No. 1 he is.
