With his 26th goal of the season last night, Vancouver Canucks rookie Brock Boeser has pulled into a tie with Dennis Ververgaert for third most goals in a season by a Canucks rookie.
The 20-year-old is just four shy of second place Trevor Linden and eight shy of tying Pavel Bure for the team’s all-time rookie record. With nearly 30 games left on the Canucks’ 2017-18 schedule, it seems likely that Boeser will pass the two Canucks legends and establish a new Canucks rookie goal scoring record. Remarkable.
In case you missed it, Boeser’s 26th was another beauty, albeit it in a losing effort against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

What a BULLET. How many will this kid end up with before the end of the season? 35+? 40+? It’s not crazy to think that he could hit 50 goals one of these seasons. Get ready, Canucks fans. The future has arrived.
