Brock Boeser doesn’t know where the trade rumors came from, but he does know he wants to stay right where he is. “I love Vancouver, I love the guys I play with,” Boeser told Sportsnet. “I want to be a Canuck.”
Where did the Brock Boeser rumor come from?
Brock Boeser is just 23 years-old and has shown tremendous chemistry on the Canucks top six. The Vancouver Canucks are rumored to be seeking some cap wiggle room, and were said to be looking to trade Boeser in order to accomplish that. So where did this rumor come from? A radio show.
Matt Sekeres of TSN 1040 in Vancouver put this out there and it had many people scratching their heads wondering why.
Canucks GM Jim Benning shoots down Boeser trade rumors
When the Canucks kicked off phase 3 training camp Canucks GM, Jim Benning addressed the rumor. His response was a clear as it could be on Boeser. “That’s not true,” he exclaimed, “somebody made that up.”
This is straight from the general manager’s mouth. Brock Boeser isn’t available. Yet here we are and Boeser is still scratching his head over it. While I expect the rumors to linger, it really should be taken with a big grain of salt from here on out.
