It was a big week for Canucks prospects in the NCAA as Brock Boeser did something nobody has done since 2005, while Thatcher Demko continues to stand on his head for Boston College.


After being held off the scoresheet for the first three games of the season, 2015 first-rounder Brock Boeser broke out with a hat trick on Saturday night, marking the first time a North Dakota freshman has scored three goals in a game since TJ Oshie did so in 2005.
