Brock Boeser Signs A Three-Year Deal With Vancouver

Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the club has re-signed forward Brock Boeser to a three-year contract extension worth an average annual value of $5.875 million.

"We're very pleased to have Brock re-sign," said Benning. "He's a talented player, a key contributor to our offence and an important part of our team's future. We look forward to having Brock join the team in preparation for the upcoming season."

Boeser, 22, finished third in team scoring last season with 56 points (26-30-56) in 69 games. His 26 goals also ranked third on the team, while his three game winning goals ranked second. In 140 career NHL games with Vancouver, Boeser has recorded 116 points (59-57-116) and 38 penalty minutes.

Signing Brock Boeser May Have Become Harder

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province,

There are a number of ways to look at the Mitch Marner contract — and various media outlets in Toronto have examined them all — but this is what it looks like from Vancouver.

The Maple Leafs didn’t make the Brock Boeser negotiation any easier on the Canucks....

Marner is coming off a breakthrough 94-point season which placed him 11th among all NHL scorers last season. Boeser had 56 points in 69 games....

Marner has been the more productive player. But, if you believe the Canucks are trying to bring Boeser in at $7 million per, is that difference worth $4 million a year?

Let’s look at it another way. Even if it’s worth $2 million a year, that puts Boeser in the $9-million ballpark and that will impact the negotiations for Elias Pettersson in two years and Bo Horvat two years after that.

Brock Boeser Seeking An AAV Of $7M

from TSN,

According to Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province, Brock Boeser's agent Ben Hankinson "has an appetite for a four-year extension at $7 million annually" for his client this summer.

A four-year, $28 million contract for Boeser would top that of San Jose Sharks forward Timo Meier, who signed a four-year, $24 million deal in July and was noted to be a comparable to Boeser by Canucks general manager Jim Benning on Monday.

“Those are some of the names we’ve used,” Benning said of Meier and currently unsigned Winnipeg Jets restricted free agent Kyle Connor. “They (Boeser’s camp) have been reasonable and we’re continuing to talk to get to some common ground. I’m hopeful to get something done before camp, but we’re not there yet.”

Boeser had 26 goals and 56 points in 69 games last season, but as Kuzma notes, on pro-rated basis to 82 games, the 22-year-old would have had 66 points, equal to both Meier and Connor.

Brock Boeser Ready To Play His Game Again

from Jessi Pierce at NHL.com,

Brock Boeser is raring to go with the Vancouver Canucks after proclaiming himself healthy and showing no effects of a lower-back injury that ended his rookie season March 5.

"It was a long four months, so it feels really good to get back out there," the 21-year-old forward said Wednesday between games at Da Beauty League, a 4-on-4 summer league featuring players with connections to Minnesota. "I feel like I'm playing my game again. It's been a good summer since they cleared me."...

It was a breakout season, but one that could add pressure for a repeat, especially with the Canucks beginning a new era following the retirement of forwards Daniel Sedin and Henrik Sedin after 17 seasons in the NHL.

"There's always pressure, at least you think there's pressure, but I try not to let pressure situations get the most of me," Boeser said. "I definitely exceeded my expectations [last season], so I think I can take that into [this season].

"I really can't get away from the style play that I play. I think I just need to go in there and hopefully be a better player than I was last year, make sure I come to the rink every day working hard and help make the team better."

Brock Boeser - A Star Is Born

from Ed Wiles of the Vancouver Province,

In the here and now it’s difficult to know what forces Boeser unleashed on his career in Tampa but it’s safe to say something changed during All-Star weekend. As a result of his starring turn, Boeser morphed from a nice regional story for the Canucks to a verifiable phenom in the hockey world.

He was all over NBC’s and CBC’s coverage of the … er … mid-season classic. Go to the ESPN website and there’s Boeser. He’s there in The Sporting News and The Hockey News. Type the words Brock Boeser and All-Star Game MVP into a search engine and you get 95,700 matches. Then there’s that great picture of Boeser that ran everywhere, the shiny new star standing in front of his shiny new car for being named the game’s MVP.

The money was nice, too. On top of everything else, Boeser cashed in a winning lottery ticket in Florida this weekend, taking in around US$600,000 in prize money, bonuses and other trinkets.

Video- Brock Boeser In A Walking Boot After Blocking A Shot

via Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province,

Doing what good players do, he took a Mark Giordano shot off the top of this left foot early in the second period and dropped like a rock.

The club’s leading scorer with 17 goals and 13 assists through 30 games was in excruciating pain and crawled toward the bench. He couldn’t put any weight on his left leg. He had to be helped to the bench and then hobbled to the locker-room.

The raucous atmosphere of a holiday hockey crowd suddenly became subdued. You could hear a pin drop....

The club didn’t announce the severity of the injury — it could take time for swelling to subside and take a proper image of the damage... If that wasn’t bad enough, Boeser was spotted post-game on crutches and in a walking boot.

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.
