According to the latest reports, the Vancouver Canucks will be without star forward Brock Boeser tomorrow for game seven against the Edmonton Oilers.

The game will be the first time the Canucks' season is on the line as they host the Oilers for the winner-take-all game to advance to the Western Conference Final. Unfortunately, they will be without their top goal-scorer of the playoffs as a new report just emerged that he is dealing with a blood clotting issue. NHL insider Elliotte Friedman provided us with a short story on the topic after the initial report came from Canucks reporter Irfaan Gaffar.
"Vancouver Canucks winger Brock Boeser is expected to miss Game 7 against Edmonton with a blood clotting issue.

The exact timeline for his return is unknown, but several sources stressed this, thankfully, is not considered a life-threatening situation.

It's a big loss for the Canucks, as Boeser is having an excellent season — leading Vancouver with seven goals and 12 assists in 12 playoff games."
Luckily, it is being reported that this issue is not life-threatening for the Canucks forward. However, very little is known about this situation outside the Canucks organization. As a result, we really have no idea how long Boeser could be out. Could he miss just the one game? Or will he even get a chance to return in the playoffs at all, even if the Canucks reach the Stanley Cup finals?

His status going forward for the playoffs is unclear, however this is not considered a life-threatening issue.
Unfortunately, we just do not have those details at this moment in time. Hopefully he will be able to return quickly, but this does seem like a rather serious condition, even if it is not life-threatening. As a result, the Canucks may be without Boeser for quite some time.
