Dr. Ali Rendely joins the Jeff Marek Show to discuss the next steps in Brock Boeser's blood clots, and whether there are any short and long-term concerns and future outlook for the Canucks' sniper.

Even if the Vancouver Canucks manage to advance to the Western Conference final, they won’t be getting forward Brock Boeser back any time soon.

Boeser, who has developed a blood clot that will keep him out of Game 7 on Monday night, is not expected to be able to play again this season, Sportsnet has confirmed. Frank Seravalli of first reported the development.
