The Vancouver Canucks have sent Brock Boeser back to Vancouver to see a specialist, the team confirmed Thursday.

Boeser missed Tuesday's contest against the Detroit Red Wings - the first leg of his team's current six-game road trip - with a groin injury.

The 21-year-old will miss Thursday's matchup with the Boston Bruins, but the Canucks haven't ruled out the possibility of Boeser re-joining at some point during their current road swing, which won't conclude until next Thursday.

"He's gotten better, but he isn't over the hump yet," head coach Travis Green said.

Boeser had begun to turn things around after a slow start to the season, notching two goals and four points against the Colorado Avalanche on Friday.
