Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning vehemently denied that there was any truth to the rumours that he exploring a trade for Brock Boeser.

Benning made that clear to reporters in a conference call on Monday after speculation on Vancouver's TSN Radio 1040 last week that the team was exploring the possibility of trading the 23-year-old forward.

"We've been happy with him since we drafted him," Benning said. "I don't know where this stuff comes from. I have no intention of trading Brock Boeser."
