Vancouver Canucks forward Brock Boeser is out 3-to-4 weeks after successful hand surgery.

The team said Boeser suffered the injury at practice on Saturday, the third day of training camp. He will miss the start of the regular season, which begins on Oct. 12 at Edmonton.

Boeser, 25, signed a three-year, $19.95 million contract with the Canucks in July.

Boeser registered 46 points (23 goals, 23 assists) in 71 games in his sixth season with the Canucks in 2021-22.

It was his fourth 20-goal campaign in the past five seasons and boosted his career total to 256 points (121 goals, 135 assists) in 324 games.

A first-round pick (23rd overall) by Vancouver in 2015, Boeser tied for the team lead last season with six game-winning goals and ranked second on the Canucks with 11 power-play goals. Both numbers were career highs for the Minnesota native.
