Earlier this week, Canucks winger Brock Boeser was sent back to Vancouver for evaluation on a groin injury. The results of his testing are in and while it’s not great news, it could be a lot worse. Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports that Boeser has been diagnosed with an adductor muscle strain and has been ruled out for the remainder of their current road trip which wraps up on Thursday. Head coach Travis Green stated that his official prognosis is that he will be out week-to-week.
This has been a lingering issue in recent weeks for the 21-year-old so the fact that there is now some more clarity and detail as to what the specific problem is certainly a positive. Now, the Canucks will be hoping that Boeser makes a quick recovery as he is one of their top players in the early going this season with 11 points in 13 games and they will need him healthy if they want to hang on to their position atop the Pacific Division.
