3 Vancouver Canucks Not Expected Back Next Season

The Vancouver Canucks made some serious changes to their roster this season and the plan is for this to continue into this upcoming offseason. Expect to see management busy once again making trades at the NHL Entry Draft and leading into free agency. Here's three Canucks who aren't expected back next season:

Brock Boeser

Trade talks were ongoing for most of the season, unfortunately for Boeser, a move never was finalized. The Minnesota Wild and Pittsburgh Penguins will be hard after Boeser once again at the draft and into the early summer months. Look for a trade to come at some point as this has become a situation where the player needs a change of scenery.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson

Look for the Canucks management duo to shop Ekman-Larsson this offseason and be willing to retain salary and add a sweetener to the deal. There's even potential of a buy out if no takers present themselves. This is one of the contracts Vancouver is looking to get out of and this summer their action plan will be put in place. OEL is due $7.2 million through the 2026-27 season.

Collin Delia

The 28-year-old Delia has played mostly as a backup with the Canucks and this season has produced a 3.34 GAA in 16 games. He's a pending free agent and with Vancouver having a number of goalies ready for a bigger role including Spencer Martin or Arturs Silovs, look for Delia not to be re-signed by the team.
