Brock Boeser has been a force to be reckoned with in these playoffs, with 7 goals and 12 assists for the Vancouver Canucks. Unfortunately he is done for the year.

Following reports of a blood clotting issue, Brock Boeser's status was deemed as being unavailable for game 7 against the Edmonton Oilers, as well as worries on his health long-term if the Vancouver Canucks made it to the western conference final.

NHL insider Frank Seravalli confirmed heartbreaking news today: Brock Boeser is done for the season:

Sounds like #Canucks  Brock Boeser's blood clot developed in his leg, something team medical staff found after Game 6.

He has been placed on blood thinning medication and is not expected to be available to play again this season.

Brutal break for #Canucks ' leading goal scorer.

We will see if the Vancouver Canucks can make it through without Boeser, but as their leading scorer and a notable playoff performer, it won't be easy.
