The dream season continues for Brock Boeser, while Alex Grenier and Ronalds Kenins continue to produce offensively in Utica.


There is no slowing down Brock Boeser this season. The Canucks’ 2015 first-rounder scored three times and added three assists for six points in two games this past week. His 25 goals on the season rank second among NCAA freshman and fourth overall. Boeser finished as the NCHC scoring leader, becoming the first North Dakota freshman to do so.
