Hockey has fallen in love with Brock Boeser.

Many fans would like for the Canucks rookie to be their valentine.

According to a new survey from ticket resale website StubHub, Boeser is the most desired member of Vancouver’s roster, with 11 per cent of hockey fans and a whopping 67 per cent of B.C. hockey fans saying Boeser is the player they would choo-choo choose as their top NHL valentine, or “Stubhubby.”

“It’s no surprise,” said centre Bo Horvat. “He’s known as Prince Charming, he looks exactly like him, so I mean I guess all the ladies are going to love that.

“I think he’s a pretty good-looking kid.”

Erik Gudbranson echoed that.

“He’s a good looking cat,” said the defenceman. “He’s funny, he’s got a good personality. He’s gonna make a lot of money in this league. He should be up there – he’s having a great season. Doesn’t shock me.”

Among Canucks, Boeser was followed by defenceman Alex Edler at six per cent and winger Daniel Sedin at five per cent, which certainly raises a few questions. Among them: who the heck were the respondents for this thing? Daniel over Henrik? Henrik has more career points, a bigger forehead and he’s the captain. Does leadership mean nothing to you people?

And how the devastatingly handsome Gudbranson failed to even crack the podium is anybody’s guess. Through two seasons in Vancouver, it’s clear that his rugged good looks are his best asset.

VANCOUVER, BC - MARCH 31: Brock Boeser . Do the Vancouver Canucks have enough star power in their prospects to sufficiently replace the Sedin twins? In addition to being a hockey player, Boeser lives as a son to a father who has Parkinson’s disease.

**** For those missing out on their advanced stats all year, Corsica Hockey 2.0 It might take a little while yet for full functionality, but it’s a great day for hockey fans in general. **** There has been a lot of love for Brock Boeser so far this off-season from some fantasy hockey owners, and I don’t get it.

But he can’t score like the 20-year-old Boeser, who leads the Canucks with 26 goals and 48 points, earned a nod to this year’s NHL All-Star Weekend, then went on to win the shooting accuracy contest as well as MVP of the entire event.

Accomplishments like this tend to make a man extremely desirable, especially to other men. Boeser took 15 per cent of the vote among male respondents, compared to eight per cent for women.

It’s not just the scoring, either. When Boeser isn’t turning heads with his elite hockey ability, the man nicknamed “The Flow” gets it done with his incredible head of hair.

Be. My. Valentine.

But while Boeser needed only half a rookie season to become the most desired Canuck, he wasn’t able to take the top spot leaguewide, finishing in a tie for second place with Auston Matthews of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The overall winner was Montreal Canadiens’ netminder Carey Price, but we’ve all seen what happens when he and Boeser go head-to-head.

As for Canada’s other markets, Erik Karlsson was the top vote-getter among Senators, Mark Scheifele edged out all other Jets, Johnny Gaudreau did the same among Flames, and Connor McDavid ran away with things in Edmonton.
