Vancouver Canucks forward Brock Boeser is out indefinitely with an upper-body injury, the team announced Tuesday.

Boeser sustained the injury after being unintentionally hit by teammate Elias Pettersson during the latter’s check on Ben Hutton in the second period of Vancouver’s 3-2 overtime loss to the Vegas Golden Knights on Sunday. Boeser, who was holding his right arm after the hit, returned for the third period.

Boeser, 25, has recorded 38 points (19 goals, 19 assists) in 64 games this season. He is set to become a restricted free agent this summer.

He has 248 points (117 goals, 131 assists) in 317 career games since being selected by the Canucks with the 23rd overall pick of the 2015 NHL Draft.
