Boeser scored one goal Tuesday, in a 3-2 overtime win versus Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

Boeser wasted little time ending things, scoring just over thirty seconds into the extra frame. The 21-year-old American now has points in four straight games and appears to have settled into a nice groove after a somewhat slow start to the season. Boeser and the Canucks will now get ready to battle the Jets on Thursday.

Boeser slapped home the eventual game-winning goal in a 4-1 win against the Lightning on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Alex Killorn's errant pass was picked off by Boeser, who immediately turned around and fired the puck an unsuspecting Andrei Vasilevskiy for his first goal of the season. It's a sigh of relief for the young sniper, who had been nearly invisible to start the season. It's clear that defenses are focusing on Boeser so he may not be as efficient as he was last season, but he's getting top-six minutes and plenty of action on the power play.

Boeser's slow start is due to him playing scared, writes Harrison Mooney of The Province.

EDGE Analysis

Boeser's season ended early last year when his back was fractured from landing in the open door of the Canucks bench. He claimed that it was a frightening experience, which is certainly understandable. Coming back from a long-term injury is difficult on its own, and adding a mental element could be putting a lot on the 21-year-old's shoulders.

Boeser will play this year under his entry-level contract and will look to finalize a long-term extension ahead of next season.

EDGE Analysis

Rather than continuing to work on a long-term deal throughout the season, the two sides will set aside contract discussions under after 2018-19. Boeser will be a restricted free agent at that point, so the Canucks don't have to worry about losing him in free agency.

Boeser (back) has been cleared by doctors and is playing in a summer league in Minnesota, NHL.com reports. He will be ready to roll when training camp begins.

EDGE Analysis

Coming off a rookie campaign that earned him runner-up honors for the Calder Trophy, Boeser should be full-go when training camp commences. However, it's worth pointing out that the Sedin brother, with whom he played with last season, retired following 2017-18, so Boeser will be playing alongside two new linemates this season.

Boeser (wrist/back) said his rehab is on schedule and he will play in Minnesota's summer league in July, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Boeser was on track for training camp already, but seeing that he'll be skating at full speed even sooner is a major plus in his rehab. The Minnesota native racked up 29 goals and 55 points through 62 games and was the favorite to win the Calder Trophy -- awarded to the league's top rookie -- before being shut down due to a back injury. Fans should be eager to see what the 21-year-old can accomplish in a full NHL season.

Boeser's wrist and back injuries are expected to be completely healed in time for training camp before the 2018-19 season begins.

EDGE Analysis

Boeser enjoyed a strong rookie campaign, potting 29 goals and 55 points in just 62 games. He expects to be a huge piece of the puzzle for Vancouver moving forward, and this news is terrific for his team and hopeful fantasy owners. Assuming the 21-year-old stays healthy, expect him to build on his strong 2017-18 season.

Boeser (back) will receive an injection in his injured wrist which will allow him to avoid surgery, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Boeser is still recovering from a back injury, which as the report points out, has prevented him from resuming workouts. There wasn't any information provided on the nature of the rookie standout's wrist injury, it was confirmed that the problem he's currently dealing with is in the same wrist that was surgically repaired while he was playing in college. Canucks fans and fantasy owners alike will be hoping that Boeser is ready to go for the 2018-19 campaign after finishing second in goals (29) and fifth in points (55) amongst rookies, despite only suiting up for 62 contests in 2017-18.

Boeser (back) traveled back to Minnesota to get his wrist looked at, the team announced Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Boeser was already dealing with a back issue that saw him miss the last 16 games on the year, with this latest news complicating the winger's recovery. There has been no indication the winger won't be ready for the start of the 2018-19 season, although if his wrist problem requires surgery, his availability could be in question. The Minnesota native had a breakout rookie campaign in which he tallied 29 goals, 26 helpers and 179 shots. With the departure of the Sedin twins, Boeser will likely taken on an even bigger role with the Canucks and could challenge for the 50-point mark again next year.

Boeser (back) is no longer showing on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

EDGE Analysis

Boeser's apparent activation from injured reserve suggests that he could hit the ice for Saturday's home game against the Sharks, but we still recommend waiting for the team to officially make that call. The rookie is a legit Calder Trophy candidate, having deposited 29 goals and 26 assists -- including 23 power-play points -- through 62 games.
