There is no messing around with Vancouver Canucks rookie Brock Boeser. He may be in a tight race with New York Islanders rookie Mathew Barzal for the Calder trophy, the kid has proven he is not to be messed with.
On Tuesday night, Boeser was buried from behind by a cross check from Los Angeles Kings' Trevor Lewis to set up a 5-on-3 power play. The referee ask Boeser to return to the bench on an injury break, but he waited patiently on the bench to get back in the action.
It took the sniper precisely 12 seconds to exact his revenge.
Boeser scored twice in the second period — including that blast on a two-man advantage and explained why to the media after the game.
"I wasn't too happy because that hurt pretty bad," Boeser said of the cross check.
"Especially after that breakaway, I wanted to score there."
The Canucks host the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday, and you better believe Boeser is more than ready!
