Vancouver Canucks winger Brock Boeser is experiencing blood-clotting issues and is likely to miss Game 7 of the club’s second-round series against the visiting Edmonton Oilers on Monday night, according to Sportsnet.

Boeser missed practice Sunday and it isn’t clear when he will return to the team.

Sportsnet indicated the situation isn’t considered to be life-threatening.

Boeser, 27, is having a strong postseason and leads the Canucks with seven goals. He’s tied for the team lead with 12 points in 12 games.

Boeser 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.
