Canucks’ Brock Boeser reflects on scary injury that ended rookie season


Brock Boeser had a whirlwind 2017-18 campaign. The youngster established himself as one of the top snipers in the NHL and a player the Vancouver Canucks can begin to build around as the franchise moves on the from the Sedin era.

Unfortunately, his season was cut short due to a significant back injury suffered in early March.

Boeser went into detail about what he experienced that night in a video the Canucks posted Wednesday.

“I was thinking a lot of things [when I first went down],” Boeser explained. “I hit my head too so I was seeing stars at first. At first I couldn’t really move my left leg so I was laying there on the ice and just didn’t move because I didn’t know what I hurt, if it was my pelvis, I didn’t even know it was my back at first honestly.

“And then I started to get a little panicky there laying on my stomach so I had to flip over. I didn’t know I was hurt but I had to flip over to my back or else I was going to have a panic attack. I was laying there and it just continued to hurt.

“It was the worse pain probably I’ve ever had.”
