The Vancouver Canucks drafted a great, young player in Brock Boeser during the 2015 NHL draft. Brock is known for his shooting abilities, more specifically the quickness of his shot.
After being drafted into the NHL, he opted to continue his college career with the UND (University of North Dakota) where he amassed 94 points in 74 games. I personally think this was a good idea since typically the leagues in the US play less games than the CHL, which allows players to hone their skills. UND has a history of pumping out stars such as Jonathan Toews, Zach Parise and TJ Oshie which started out in 1946/47 season. Today, it’s clear they are one of the premier teams in the NCHC as UND has made over 30 appearances in the NCAA tournament, appeared in the Frozen Four 22 times, and have won 8 NCAA Division I Championships.
Recently, Adam McQuaid of the Boston Bruins tested to see if Brock’s shot was all it was cracked up to be. The result? A broken leg and he’ll be out of the lineup for 2 months. Hopefully Adam has a speedy recovery, but Brock wasn’t brought in to break legs, he was brought in to score goals… like his first NHL goal last season in his NHL debut.
