Vancouver Canucks forward Brock Boeser will miss the rest of the postseason after developing a blood clot in his leg, Sportsnet reported Monday.

The Canucks' leading goal-scorer is unavailable for Game 7 of their second-round series against the visiting Edmonton Oilers on Monday night, per the report.

Boeser, 27, was placed on blood-thinning medication after the clot was discovered by team medical staff following Vancouver's 5-1 loss in Edmonton on Saturday.

Boeser leads the Canucks with seven goals and is tied for the team lead with 12 points in 12 games this postseason.

He established career bests for goals (40) and points (73) while playing in 81 regular-season games. He has 179 goals and 384 points in seven-plus NHL seasons, all with the Canucks.

The winner of Monday's contest will advance to the Western Conference finals and play the Dallas Stars.
