Brock Boeser's agent, Ben Hankinson, tells @HalfordTSN @JasonBroughTSN that Brock loves playing in Vancouver, and the plan is to sign a long-term deal with the #Canucks, after his new three-year contract is finished Full interview: https://t.co/8O0XMvoBSb
Hankinson: It's great for Brock to be in Vancouver. I think it's the best place for him. So it's not to the plan to sign a 3-year deal and get outta there. I talked to Jim this morning, and he said the plan is to do a 3-year deal, then flip it into an 8-year deal. #canucks
Hankinson on Boeser: Our expectations weren't the same (on longer deal), so we did short-term. It's great for Brock to go out and prove himself. He loves Vancouver, loves the fans, loves the attention, loves where it's going. 100% can tell you he's excited to play for the Canucks
Hankinson on Boeser contract: Jim and I kinda focused in on three years in the last, say, three weeks or a month. We talked before camp, but neither of us was moving much....both of us were hitting our heads against each other, saying it was fair
