In case you've been living under a rock, Vancouver Canucks rookie Brock Boeser tore it up at the NHL’s All-Star Game festivities this past weekend.
After winning the shooting accuracy competition by defeating snipers like Steven Stamkos and Sidney Crosby at the Skills Competition on Saturday night, Boeser put on a show today leading Team Pacific to victory and taking home weekend MVP honours. Incredible.
Boeser lit it up playing on a line with Calgary Flames superstar Johnny Gaudreau and Arizona Coyotes defenceman Oliver Ekman-Larsson. The chemistry between Gaudreau and Boeser was apparent from the start:
All in all, a pretty good day for the Canucks rookie. An All-Star appearance and MVP honours.
Oh… and the kid earned a cool $550,000 for his work.
Woooooooooow! How as your weekend? Did you make over half a million this weekend?
Today, the beat just goes on for the 20-year-old superstar in the making as he was named the NHL’s First Star for the week of January 22nd to January 28th. Congrats, Brock!
