Brock Boeser is good to go.

The young Vancouver Canucks forward and teammate Oscar Fantenberg have been cleared to play in the team's season opener Wednesday night against the Edmonton Oilers, Canucks general manager Jim Benning told reporters Monday.

Both players were injured on hits in a preseason win over the Ottawa Senators on Sept. 23. Boeser entered concussion protocol after being checked from behind by Senators forward Chris Tierney.

The American winger returned to practice Saturday.

Boeser signed a three-year, $17.63-million contract with the Canucks as a restricted free agent on Sept. 16.
