A strong skating forward who is very effective at getting to open space. He possesses a hard, accurate shot and has the ability to create opportunities off the rush. - NHL Central Scouting’s David Gregory
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.

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
