North Dakota forward Brock Boeser has given up his final two seasons of collegiate eligibility after signing with the NHL’s Vancouver Canucks.
Boeser, whose season ended in a double-overtime loss to Boston University in the West Regional semifinals Friday in Fargo, N.D., scored his first NHL goal for the Canucks on Saturday at Minnesota.

He had 16 goals and 34 points for North Dakota this season after a breakout rookie season of 27 goals and 60 points.
Signing now means this season counts as one year in his three-year, entry-level contract.
Boeser was the 23rd overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft after he scored 35 goals in 57 games for Waterloo in the USHL.
