An analytics company has projected contract extensions for Brock Boeser & trio of other Canucks who are in the final year of their current deals.

The Vancouver Canucks have got most of their off-season work done already and it came with some big price tags, particularly with Filip Hronek and Jake DeBrusk. While the team is now focused on their summer and enjoying their time before returning to Vancouver for training camp, it's never too early to take a look at free agents the Canucks have in 2025.
An analytics company, AFP Analytics, released their projections for contract extensions around the National Hockey League and among those were four members of the Vancouver Canucks - Brock Boeser, Pius Suter, Nils Hoglander and Noah Juulsen.
For Brock Boeser, AFP Analytics believes he's in line for a seven-year contract worth $8.62 million per season. Boeser is coming off the best career of his NHL career, scoring 40 goals in 81 games and finished with 73 points. During the Stanley Cup Playoffs, he had a hat trick against the Nashville Predators and seven goals in total through 12 games before being shut down due to a blood clotting issue.
Pius Suter had a solid season for Vancouver, playing a depth role during the 2023-24 campaign where he had 29 points (14 goals, 15 assists) in 67 games. AFP says the 28-year-old could receive a four-year contract with a cap hit of $3.29 million. While he had played pretty well in a depth role, the term and money may be too much for the Canucks to commit, but it'll depend on how he plays this coming year.
Much like Brock Boeser, 23-year-old Nils Hoglander had the best season of his NHL career in 2023-24. In 80 regular season games, he put up 36 points (24 goals, 12 assists), but didn't have a great showing during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, where he had two points in 12 games. The Canucks could get a bargain with Hoglander based on AFP Analytics' projection, who say he could get a two-year deal with a cap hit of $2.52 million.
Finally, Noah Juulsen, a former first-round pick of the Montreal Canadiens, is coming off his first full season in the NHL after bouncing up and down between the AHL and big club in recent years. He provided Rick Tocchet a reliable depth option on the third line playing anywhere from 12 to 15 minutes a night and it'll be interested to see how he plays into the Canucks' plans this season after the additions of Derek Forbort and Vincent Desharnias. AFP Analytics say that Noah Juulsen could earn a two-year contract from the Canucks with a cap hit of $1.06 million.
