The Vancouver Canucks' trade for Tyler Toffoli is suddenly making a lot more sense.

Brock Boeser suffered a rib cartilage fracture and will be re-evaluated in three weeks, while forward Micheal Ferland is out for the season due to recurring concussion-like symptoms, Canucks general manager Jim Benning announced Monday night.

Boeser, who's missed the last three games, was hurt Feb. 8 against the Calgary Flames.

Ferland was diagnosed with concussion-like symptoms after leaving Friday's game with the AHL's Utica Comets.

Boeser has collected 16 goals and 45 points across 56 contests in 2019-20. Ferland managed only five points in 14 games during an injury-plagued campaign.

Vancouver landed Toffoli in a deal with the Los Angeles Kings earlier Monday night.
