In a distressing turn of events, the Vancouver Canucks will be without Brock Boeser for the pivotal Game 7 after a serious medical condition has sidelined the star player.

Following Game 6, Boeser was diagnosed with a blood clot in his leg, a condition that has shaken the team and its fans alike.
According to NHL insider Frank Seravalli, the diagnosis came swiftly after the last game. Boeser is now on a regimen of blood thinners, a necessary treatment that unfortunately rules him out for the remainder of the playoffs, irrespective of the Canucks' progression.

The disappointment extends beyond the team and its fans; it resonates throughout the hockey community.

Andersen himself was out of play from November 2023 to March 2024 due to a blood clot, as reported at
Tonight, the stakes are incredibly high as the Canucks face their rivals in Vancouver. The absence of Boeser adds a layer of adversity to what promises to be a fiercely contested battle. As the team prepares, the thoughts of fans and players alike are with Boeser, hoping for his full recovery and return next season.
