Brock Boeser out for rest of regular season

Brock Boeser out for rest of regular season”

The Vancouver Canucks announced the acquisition of forward Tyler Toffoli from the Los Angeles Kings, then immediately gave clarity as to why the trade was made a week before the February 24 trade deadline.

General Manager Jim Benning says the team will have a better idea on a specific timeline after Boeser, who was hurt on February 8, sees a specialist on Wednesday. "He has great offensive instincts and experience playing in high-pressure, meaningful games".

Toffoli scored two goals in the final 55 seconds and goaltender Jonathan Quick stopped 32 shots for the Kings who won back to back games for the first time in eight weeks and recorded just their 21st win of the season.

Toffoli played all 82 games that season, and did again the last two years, collecting 47 and 34 points, respectively. Set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, Toffoli will look to immediately begin producing in the Canucks' top-six forward group.

The 29-year-old Schaller dressed in 51 games this season with the Canucks and had five goals and an assist. He has appeared in 274 career National Hockey League games, amassing 29 goals and 28 assists while playing for the Buffalo Sabres, Boston Bruins and Vancouver.

Vancouver, which last made the playoffs in 2015, is just one point out of first place in a crowded Pacific Division behind co-leaders Edmonton and Vegas.

On February 9, head coach Travis Green said that I would miss two games and then be reevaluated.

The Kings are 30th in the 31-team league, with only Detroit now holding a worse record.
