Vancouver Canucks rookie Brock Boeser has come out of All-Star Weekend with an MVP title to his name, and some pretty awesome bonuses. The Pacific Division pulled out a victory over the Atlantic in the 2018 NHL All-Star Game, and the 20-year-old was named the MVP of the tournament thanks to his two goals.
Alongside the honor and the All-Star win, Boeser was the winner of Saturday night’s shooting accuracy contest. All that winning comes with quite a bonus to his paycheck, as the $25,000 for the skills competition win and the $100,000 cut of the winning prize pool is a swell add-on.
Not only that — due to being named the All-Star MVP, Boeser has picked up a $212,500 entry-level bonus that will kick in thanks to his contract with the Canucks.
For being All-Star MVP, Brock Boeser gets a $212,500 entry-level bonus. That’s in addition to $100,000 for being part of the winning team and $25,000 for winning the shooting accuracy. That’s a good weekend— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) January 29, 2018
In total, Boeser scored $337,500 in additional money to his paycheck for the outstanding performance. Boeser also activated the clauses in his contract for hitting the 20-goal mark and being named to the NHL All-Star Game, for a final total of $637,500 extra cash to his bank account this year. That’s quite the haul!
Of course, being the NHL All-Star MVP also meant Boeser nabbed himself a complimentary car from the league. Talk about a relaxing weekend of fun turning into a cash grab.
This season, Boeser has put up 24 goals and 43 points in 46 games for the Canucks. If you haven’t heard of his name before today, take note, because Boeser is likely going to be a star in the NHL for years to come.
