Boeser collided with Islanders forward Cal Clutterbuck and took an awkward fall, appearing to hit his back on the Canucks’ open bench door.
Boeser stayed down for several moments before eventually making his way to the bench. The 21-year-old could not seem to put any weight on his left leg and had to be assisted into the dressing room by a trainer. He was stretchered out of the arena and taken to the hospital by ambulance post-game.
Canucks coach Travis Green told reporters after the game that Boeser went to hospital for “precautionary” reasons and that the team’s medical staff hope the winger suffered only a bruise.
