Canucks Rumors: 3 Players Who Won't Be Traded this Summer

The Vancouver Canucks were eliminated by the Edmonton Oilers and changes are expected to come this summer. The Canucks have a slew of pending free-agents who are likely to cash in big on the open market and management has shown a long history of bold trades. 

While the likes of Elias Lindholm and Nikita Zadorov may be tough to re-sign, there's also a number of Canucks who are untouchable on the trade market. Here's three Canucks who won't be moved this offseason:

Elias Pettersson

Even though Pettersson struggled throughout the playoffs, the team is fully behind their star who is signed through the 2031-32 season. His no-movement clause doesn't kick in until July 1, but don't expect to see Pettersson dealt before that. He's a cornerstone piece and the organization will work with him throughout the summer to put a finger on what exactly caused the drop in production.

Brock Boeser

A blood clot derailed Boeser's playoff run but the one-time prime trade candidate showed his worth throughout the entire season. Boeser finished with 40 goals and 73 points in 81 games and another 12 points in 12 playoff games. The American winger has just one season left on his deal and no trade protection, however the Canucks are much more likely to re-sign Boeser than move him this summer.

Arturs Silovs

Silovs was thrown into action and performed above expectations. The 23-year-old is a pending restricted free-agent and will surely be re-signed at some point this offseason. Silovs and Thatcher Demko, who has two seasons left on his deal will be handling the goaltender duties in Vancouver for years to come.

Quinn Hughes and J.T Miller are also not going anywhere.
