Vancouver Canucks forward Brock Boeser is in concussion protocol, head coach Travis Green told reporters Tuesday.

Boeser was hit from behind by Ottawa Senators forward Chris Tierney during a 6-4 Canucks victory on Monday night.

Green added Tuesday that Canucks defenseman Oscar Fantenberg was also in concussion protocol. Senators forward Jordan Szwarz was ejected for his role in hitting Fantenberg during the contest.

Boeser stayed in the game, finishing with three assists and five shots on goal.

The 22-year-old winger recently re-signed with the Canucks as a restricted free agent, inking a three-year deal with an average annual value of $5.875 million on Sept. 16.

He produced 26 goals and 56 points in 69 games last season. It was his second campaign with Vancouver, which drafted him 23rd overall in 2015.
