News: 5 days agoBoeser had hand surgery Monday that will sideline him for 3-4 weeks.
Spin: Boeser figures to miss the first two weeks of the season given his recovery timeline outlined by the team, if not longer. Despite missing some games, Boeser should still be capable of reaching the 40-point threshold for a fourth straight season and could even push for 50. As such, Boeser figures to offer top-half fantasy value once cleared to play.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Boeser recently completed his fifth full season in the NHL, and it was by far his worst campaign to date. His 0.65 points per game (46 in 71) were a new career low, while Boeser's power-play time dropped by 34 seconds to 3:05. Vancouver wasn't too concerned, however, inking Boeser to a new three-year deal worth $6.65 million annually. The Minnesota native has been a good player for quite a while and won't turn 26 until February, so there appears to be a pretty decent chance of a bounce-back performance. Boeser will undoubtedly slip in fantasy drafts given his poor 2021-22 showing, making him a potential value play this fall.
