Profile

  • In 2014-15, Boeser paced the United States Hockey League with 35 goals (tied) and ranked third with 68 points.
  • Boeser played two seasons of high school hockey with the Burnsville Blaze, totaling 75 points (33-42—75) in 40 games. His cousin, Dan Boeser, was an assistant coach with the team and now serves as head coach of the Chicago Steel in the USHL.
  • Boeser recalls winning gold with the U.S. at the 2014 World Jr. A Challenge as his most memorable hockey moment. He collected five points (4-1—5) in four games to tie for second in team scoring behind Thomas Novak (No. 28 NA Skater) – his Waterloo teammate.
  • He captained the U.S. to a bronze medal at the 2014 Ivan Hlinka Memorial, where he tied for first in goals (6) and second in points (6-2—8). The victory was bittersweet, though, as during the tournament he received news of a car accident that killed his friend, Ty Alyea, and left three others injured including high school linemate Cole Borchardt.
  • Boeser says his father, Duane, has had the most influence on his hockey career: “He was in a major car accident and has Parkinson’s disease. I play to make my dad proud.”
  • He has committed to the University of North Dakota for the fall of 2015.

Brock Boeser commits to University of North Dakota

I'm happy with the No. 27 ranking [by NHL Central Scouting] but not satisfied with it. I'm excited for the draft but not worrying about it now. I'm focusing on the rest of the year [in Waterloo] and finishing high school. - Brock Boeser
