While everyone's eyes will be on the free agent market starting at 12 p.m. ET on July 1st, for good reason, some players, including Brock Boeser, will become eligible on that date to sign a contract extension.

Boeser is entering the final year of his contract in 2024-25, and after a strong season in which he set new career highs in goals (40) and points (73), he may be in for a big pay day this summer.
Now, it's not guaranteed that Boeser will be locked up to a contract extension as of July 1st or even throughout the summer, for that matter, which might not be what Canucks fans were hoping for, especially after Elias Pettersson's situation last season. But it's certainly a situation everyone will monitor over the coming weeks and months.
In an article on Canucks Army, they discussed what Brock Boeser's contract extension with Vancouver could look like. Given Boeser's current cap hit of $6.65 million and his production during the 2023-24 season, they believe he could be in line for an extension in the range of five to seven years with a cap hit of between $6.75 and $7.75 million.
"Everyone else who has scored 40 goals or more over the past four seasons was either already well-compensated, to the tune of a cap hit more than $7 million, or became well-compensated shortly after that.

These are undoubtedly the numbers that the Boeser camp will try to point to as they attempt to negotiate an extension that is, at least, in the neighbourhood of seven years at $7 million AAV." Stephan Roget of Canucks Army said.

He added, "We predict that Boeser will sign an extension between five and seven years, with a cap hit somewhere between $6.75 million and $7.75 million. The shorter the term, the higher the hit." Roget said.

As mentioned, the Burnsville, Minnesota native had the best season of his NHL career so far in 2023-24. In 81 games, he put up 73 points (40 goals, 33 assists), 14 penalty minutes and was a plus-23. In 12 Stanley Cup Playoff games, he added 12 points (seven goals, five assists).
