Since Boudreau arrived in Early December, Boeser has scored 11 goals since and that leads the Canucks. He is also second on the team in points behind J.T. Miller since Boudreau took over with 18. Boeser’s shooting percentage went from 7.1% to 15.5% and he has 15 goals and 28 points in 44 games this season.
Boeser is fourth on the team in Corsi for at five-on-five with 51.51% according to NaturalStatTrick.
Over the past few weeks, trade rumours about the Canucks have been swirling. Miller’s name has been brought up the most but Boeser’s name has come up recently.
Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff placed Boeser sixth on his trade targets board on Thursday which is six spots ahead of Miller.
“Trade chatter surrounding Boeser has grown louder in the last number of days as the Canucks’ newly assembled regime settles in ahead of the deadline,” wrote Seravalli. “Keep in mind: (Canucks President of Hockey Operations) Jim Rutherford has repeatedly stressed that creating salary cap flexibility is key. Other roster players can achieve space and freedom, but there is a sense the Canucks are not sold Boeser’s play will be commensurate with the large qualifying offer due to him this summer, which makes him a prime candidate to move. It’s entirely possible that J.T. Miller, who is much more of a driver than Boeser, remains in Vancouver and Boeser is on his way to a new team.”
Seravalli also reported that the New Jersey Devils might be a fit for Boeser.
