ST. PAUL, Minn. (Valley News Live) -- Less than 24 hours after skating off the ice in Fargo after a double-overtime loss in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, University of North Dakota sophomore Brock Boeser elected to forgo his final two years of NCAA eligibility and sign with the Vancouver Canucks.
Boeser signed his contract and was inserted into the lineup with plenty of family and friends there to watch his debut.
He didn't waste time to make an impact scoring his first career NHL goal in the second period after the Canucks already had a 2-0 lead Boeser slammed home a rebound with 8:09 left to play in the period.
"Dream come true. I couldn't have drawn this up any better. And to score too, and have my family and friends here is special," Boeser said following the win.
The Canucks went on to beat the Wild 4-2. Boeser finished with the goal on four shots and a plus-one rating.
