Boucher signed a one-year contract with Avangard Omsk of the KHL on Tuesday. Boucher spent the entirety of the 2019-20 campaign in the minors, racking up 34 goals and 67 points in 53 games with AHL Utica. It wouldn't be surprising to see the 2011 fourth-round pick spend the rest of his playing career overseas.
Boucher is being pursued by European clubs for the 2020-21 campaign, Rick Dhaliwal of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports. Boucher led AHL Utica in scoring this past year with 34 goals and 33 helpers in 53 contests. Dispute putting up impressive numbers with the Comets, the 26-year-old never got a shot with the Canucks this season prior to the shutdown. The Michigan native doesn't plan to give European hockey a try but could ask for a trade if Vancouver isn't going to give him an opportunity to play in the NHL.
Boucher signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Canucks on Tuesday. Boucher has spent parts of the past three seasons in the organization, logging 48 games at the NHL level and putting up eight goals and four assists. Only one of those appearances came in 2018-19, however, suggesting the 25-year-old will probably remain on the periphery as he competes for a 23-man roster spot in training camp. Expect the winger to see most of his action during the upcoming campaign at AHL Utica.
Boucher received a qualifying offer from the Canucks on Tuesday. Boucher only appeared in one game with the big club this season, going scoreless while logging 5:28 of ice time, so although all signs point to him remaining with Vancouver in 2019-20, he'll likely be spending most of his time with AHL Utica.
The Canucks reassigned Boucher to AHL Utica on Tuesday. The Canucks activated Brock Boeser (groin) off injured reserve in a corresponding move, so they're no longer in need of Boucher's services as a depth forward. The 25-year-old American will return to a prominent role with AHL Utica, where he's totaled 10 goals and 16 points in 12 appearances this campaign.
