Brock Boeser will miss at least two games due to injury

Vancouver Canucks head coach Travis Green told the media on Sunday that Brock Boeser will miss at least the next two games due to an upper-body injury. He will then be re-evaluated.

Boeser left Saturday's game against the Calgary Flames early after colliding with Flames forward Andrew Mangiapane in the neutral zone. There were no details given about the injury.

"It is what it is," Green said. "He's out for a couple games. That's part of the NHL life. You deal with it and move on. Next man up."

The Canucks did not announce any recalls from their American Hockey League affiliate the Utica Comets. The Canucks will face off against the Nashville Predators and Chicago Blackhawks in their next two games as they try to hang onto the top spot in the Pacific Division.



Boeser has 16 goals and 45 points in in 56 games with the Canucks this season, but has only recorded two assists and no goals in his past 11 games.

The Canucks better hope that Boeser isn't out for an extended period of time. Yes, they sit first in the division right now, but they are only four points ahead of ninth in the Western Conference. The Canucks losing one of their star snipers is an easy way for them to slide down the standings and out of a playoff spot.
