Canucks re-sign Brock Boeser to 3-year, $17.625M US deal
22-year-old forward's new deal worth an annual average value of $5.875M US
The Vancouver Canucks have inked restricted free agent Brock Boeser to a three-year contract.
The team announced the 22-year-old right-winger's new deal on Monday, saying it carries an average annual value of $5.875 million US.
Boeser missed training camp in Victoria over the weekend as negotiations continued. He posted a photo of himself in a Canucks jersey on Instagram after the deal was announced, with the caption: "Excited to be back, can't wait to get going! See you soon #cominghome."
The native of Burnsville, Minn., was the club's third-leading scorer last season with 26 goals and 30 assists in 69 games.
Originally picked 23rd overall by Vancouver in the 2015 draft, Boeser was an NHL All-Star Game MVP in 2018 and a finalist for the Calder Trophy in the same season, despite a broken back cutting short his rookie campaign.
