With no contract in hand, Brock Boeser has returned to his alma mater to continue his preparation for the 2019-20 NHL season.
The Vancouver Canucks‘ 22-year-old restricted free agent reportedly worked out at the University of North Dakota’s Ralph Engelstad Arena in Grand Forks, N.D., on Wednesday, according to the Grand Forks Herald.
Boeser, who hails from Burnsville, Minn., spent two years with the Fighting Hawks, collecting 94 points in 74 games and capturing the 2016 NCAA national championship as a rookie.
Boeser reportedly trained with UND associate coach and former Canuck Dane Jackson on Wednesday as Vancouver gears up for training camp, which is slated to kick off Friday in Victoria.
Despite training camp looming, the goal-scoring winger and Vancouver don’t appear close to a deal.
