Brock Boeser mysteriously leaves midway through practice

The Canucks were victorious against the Ducks on Sunday, but they weren't given the day off as they stepped right back onto the ice. Tocchet wasn't satisfied with the team's effort but admitted that getting the W was nice.

There's been some concern recently in regards to the Canucks' power play effectiveness, and a notable change occurred today. Dakota Joshua was placed on the team's top power-play unit, replacing Brock Boeser. While it seemed odd that the team's leading goalscorer wasn't on the man advantage anymore, the journalist on place then realized that Boeser was no longer on the ice.

Arshdeep Bains also took his spot alongside Pettersson and Hoglander:

''Arshdeep Bains getting turns with Pettersson and Höglander. Boeser started practice but isn't out there any longer. Hronek is getting the day off.


Joshua stepping in on PP1''


It's indeed been a breakout season for the Canucks scoring winger. On two occasions before this season, he failed to break the 30 goals barrier only by a few tallies (29 in 2017-2018, 26 in 2018-2019), but this year, he's been on a year pace as he sits two goals short of 40 and only one point short of 70.

There hasn't been any information released to explain Boeser's sudden departure. Hopefully, it's nothing too serious, and he won't have to sit a few games. We'll furnish an update as soon as one is made available.
