Projecting Charlie McAvoy's next contract Throughout June, theScore will be projecting contracts for the star-studded restricted free-agent class. In this edition, we forecast Charlie McAvoy's new deal. The player Among all the young stars up for new contracts this offseason, Charlie McAvoy is the marquee defenseman. The burgeoning superstar is only 21 years old, and he's already carved out a top-pairing role on the Bruins' blue line. He's destined to be a foundational piece for years in Boston. McAvoy has gone through injury trouble, but he's been incredibly effective when healthy while averaging 0.51 points per game over two seasons, which ranks 36th among all regular defenseman during that span.

Throughout June, theScore will be projecting contracts for the star-studded restricted free-agent class. In this edition, we project Brock Boeser's new deal.

The player

The Vancouver Canucks have collected the young core pieces they hope to build a successful team around, and now it's time to start paying them. The process begins with a new contract for sharpshooting winger Brock Boeser, the first of the club's building blocks to require a new deal.

Drafted 23rd overall by Vancouver in 2015, Boeser has already established himself as one of the league's premier shooters. Since his first full season, he sits 18th among all NHL skaters with 1.1 goals per 60 at five-on-five, ahead of some major names like Jamie Benn, Brad Marchand, Sean Monahan, and Mark Stone.

Projecting Patrik Laine's and Kyle Connor's next contracts

Projecting Patrik Laine's and Kyle Connor's next contracts Throughout June, theScore will be projecting contracts for the star-studded restricted free-agent class. In this edition, we project Patrik Laine and Kyle Connor's new deals. The players Laine and Connor became dynamic offensive weapons for the Winnipeg Jets while playing out their entry-level contracts. Between them, they've given the Jets five 30-goal seasons. Connor was selected 17th overall in the 2015 draft, while Laine was chosen second overall the following year. Laine: Laine has quickly evolved into one of the game's premier goal-scorers, but he's proven to be rather inconsistent.

Brock Boeser' s final season on his entry level deal is approaching, so what' s left for us is to speculate what his next contract is going to look like.

Boeser doesn't drive play for his linemates particularly well, but he's an elite finisher who's bound to earn a handsome payday even as a winger. The 22-year-old's resume already includes a runner-up finish in Calder Trophy voting and All-Star Game MVP honors, so he has lots to work with on his side of negotiations.

As mentioned above, Boeser is a key component of the Canucks' promising young core alongside Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes. His upcoming contract will be crucial for Vancouver's long-term salary cap picture as all three players track to make big money down the road. General manager Jim Benning can get a head start this offseason by working out a reasonable deal for Boeser.

Projecting Brayden Point's next contract

Projecting Brayden Point's next contract Throughout June, theScore will be projecting contracts for the star-studded restricted free-agent class. In this edition, we project Brayden Point's new deal. The player Perhaps no player in this stacked group has a better case to earn top dollar than Tampa Bay Lightning pivot Brayden Point does. The 2014 third-round draft gem exploded this past campaign with career highs across the board and was an indispensable piece in the Bolts' historic regular season. Point has quickly emerged as a top-tier center who's capable of producing at both even strength and on the power play while maintaining a strong defensive presence against opposing top lines.

The Vancouver Canucks will have to give sensational forward Brock Boeser a new deal after this season. What should it look like? The Vancouver Canucks have seen quite a bit of improvement from last season. Obviously, the addition of Elias Pettersson has been a significant reason why.

Brock Nelson is one of the most interesting and frustrating Islanders in the middle of his best season yet. Is Nelson playing to his true talent level under Trotz with top-six ice time, or is he benefitting from the common contract year boost? Is he going to shoot for the stars on his next contract or take a fair

The Canucks are projected to have over $30 million in cap space for the 2019-20 season, according to CapFriendly. Though Boeser headlines Vancouver's list of players due for new contracts, he's not alone. Tyler Motte, Josh Leivo, Nikolay Goldobin, and Markus Granlund are all RFA forwards as well, while Ben Hutton and Derrick Pouliot are up for new deals on the blue line. Of those six players, only Goldobin enters the offseason without arbitration rights. Vancouver also has decisions to make on veteran UFA defensemen Alex Edler and Luke Schenn. Schenn joined the club in January and it seems the Canucks want to bring him back.

Boeser won't be the only player looking to get paid this summer, but he'll undoubtedly be priority No. 1.

Projecting Mitch Marner's next contract

Projecting Mitch Marner's next contract Throughout June, theScore will be projecting contracts for the star-studded restricted free-agent class. In this edition, we project Mitch Marner's new deal. The player After landing John Tavares in free agency last July, general manager Kyle Dubas proclaimed his Toronto Maple Leafs "can and will" retain the club's entire young core in Auston Matthews, William Nylander, and Mitch Marner - despite the financial complications of harboring so many talented players. Matthews and Nylander are taken care of, and now Dubas' No. 1 summer priority is finding a suitable deal for Marner - owner of one hell of a contract year.

Brock Boeser’ s contract will expire on July 1, 2019, though the Vancouver Canucks will retain his rights as a Restricted Free Agent if they have not already signed him to an extension by then—provided they qualify his contract with a qualifying offer, an His next contract will have no such restrictions.

** - Nylander's cap hit in 2018-19 was prorated to $10.2 million based on time missed due to negotiations

Boeser missed time with injury this season but still put up 0.81 points per game over 69 contests, putting him on par with the comparables above. Working in Boeser's favor, though, is the increasing salary cap, projected at $83 million for next year. That increase could slide him ahead of all the players listed above in terms of AAV. He also outscored everybody on this list over the duration of their respective ELCs with 0.42 tallies per game, and there's no better stat than goals to build a case for a sizeable payday.

His new contract could also largely depend on which of his RFA contemporaries puts pen to paper first. Boeser is just one of numerous superstar wingers scheduled to secure a huge payday this summer along with Mitch Marner,Mikko Rantanen, Patrik Laine, Kyle Connor, and Matthew Tkachuk - all of whom will play a role in setting the market.

Boeser isn't as multidimensional as some of his RFA peers, but excelling at scoring goals at the sport's highest level is an outstanding way to earn a hefty paycheck. Given his prowess when it comes to lighting the lamp, a cap hit in the range of $7 million to $8 million would be reasonable for both sides.

Project Brock . began in May 2012 after the death of a high school athlete in northern Alberta. After Brock Ruether, a 16-year-old Fairview, AB high school student, collapsed and died while playing volleyball, Brock ' s mom – Kim Ruether - created this program in Brock ' s memory.

From the Canucks' standpoint, there's little incentive to bridge Boeser. He's proven himself as a producer, and delaying a long-term commitment could backfire big time once it's time to pay Pettersson and Hughes two years from now.

Verdict: 7 years, $51.45 million ($7.35 million AAV)
