The media didn’t waste any time asking Brock Boeser about the swirling trade rumours and he didn’t waste any time shooting those rumours down.

Boeser spoke with the media via a Zoom call on Thursday morning at 10 AM. I was on the call and got a great quote from him at the end of the call — which we will get to later.

With rumours of a potential trade to the Minnesota Wild making their way around social media, Boeser was asked what he thought about when he hears about trade rumours.

“I haven’t heard too much honestly, I don’t think I’m going to get traded. Obviously, rumours are gonna happen and that stuff is going to be out in the media. I love Vancouver, I love the guys I play with, I love the organization and the fans. I want to be a Canuck. I think our team is right there and we can win a Stanley Cup in the next couple of years. I truly believe that and our coaching staff and our teammates believe that as well. I want to be a Canuck and I want to stay in Vancouver.”

After the initial question about the trade rumours, Boeser was once again asked about them. This time the question posed to Boeser was if he thought that this was just going to be the way it’s going to be.
