The Vancouver Canucks and winger Brock Boeser agreed to a three-year extension worth $6.65 million per season, the team announced Friday.

“We’re very happy to have worked out a new deal for Brock,” Canucks general manager Patrik Allvin said. “He is a very talented player and has been an effective goal-scorer throughout his entire career. We look forward to seeing his game progress in the years to come.”

Boeser was set to become a restricted free agent after playing out the final season of a three-year contract that carried a $5.875-million cap hit.

His new deal includes a 10-team no-trade list in 2024-25, according to CapFriendly. The 25-year-old can reach unrestricted free agency at the end of that season.

Boeser put up 23 goals and 23 assists in 71 games this season. He matched his goal total from the shortened 2020-21 campaign in 15 fewer games, but he potted three fewer points in 2021-22.

The Minnesota product saw an uptick in production after Bruce Boudreau replaced Travis Green behind the bench in December.

His 19 goals in 49 contests under Boudreau translates to a 32-goal pace over an 82-game season, which would be a career high. The closest he’s come to cracking the 30-goal plateau was in 2017-18 when he lit the lamp 29 times.

Drafted 23rd overall by the Canucks in 2015, Boeser was a finalist for the Calder Trophy in 2018. He has 121 goals and 135 assists in 324 career contests.
