VANCOUVER — Brock Boeser will be staying with the Vancouver Canucks.

The former UND star has signed a three-year contract worth $19.95 million. The contract will take him through the 2024-25 season.

Boeser, 25, was set to become a restricted free agent this summer.

Boeser will instead stay with the franchise that drafted him No. 23 overall in 2015. According to CapFriendly , Boeser will be able to submit a 10-team no-trade list on July 1, 2024.

"We're very happy to have worked out a new deal for Brock," Canucks general manager Patrik Allvin said. "He is a very talented player and has been an effective goal scorer throughout his entire career. We look forward to seeing his game progress in the years to come. Now that his contract is in place for three seasons, Brock can shift his entire focus to his on-ice performance."


Boeser played two seasons at UND, helping the Fighting Hawks to the 2016 NCAA national title as a freshman. Boeser had four points in the championship game, a 5-1 victory over Quinnipiac in Tampa.

He signed with the Canucks at the end of his sophomore season and debuted in March 2017. He has gone on to play five full seasons with Vancouver after that.

Boeser has played 324 regular-season NHL games, scoring 121 goals and 256 points. He has twice led the Canucks in scoring.

Last season, the Burnsville, Minn., product had 23 goals and 46 points in 71 games.

Vancouver missed the playoffs last season, finishing five points behind Nashville for the final wild card spot.
