Vancouver Canucks winger Brock Boeser is out with an upper-body injury, the team announced on Twitter Tuesday.

Head coach Bruce Boudreau told reporters after practice, according to Postmedia’s Ben Kuzma, that Boeser will miss Wednesday’s game against the Vegas Golden Knights but the injury is still being evaluated.

Boeser skated more than 17 minutes — including a shift in overtime — in the Canucks’ loss to the Golden Knights on Sunday. He briefly left the game clutching his arm after a collision with teammate Elias Pettersson in the second period, but returned in the third.

The 25-year-old has 19 goals and 38 points in 64 games this season.

In other Canucks news, star defenceman Quinn Hughes missed practice with an illness but his status for Wednesday’s game remains unknown, according to Boudreau. The coach added that it is unlikely defenceman Tucker Poolman (head injury) and Nils Hoglander (groin injury) will play again this season, according to Canucks reporter Jeff Paterson.
