The Vancouver Canucks will start the season without Brock Bowser following surgery on the right winger’s hand.

The team announced the news on Monday, saying the 25-year-old forward injured himself at training camp in Whistler, BC on Saturday and will be out for three to four weeks.

Bowser scored 23 goals and 23 assists for Vancouver last season while dealing with the declining health of his father, Duke, who died in late May after an extended battle with cancer and Parkinson’s disease.

Bowser told reporters on Thursday that he is looking forward to focusing on hockey and helping the Canucks win.

Drafted 23rd overall by the Canucks in 2015, the six-foot-one, 208-pounder has 256 points in 324 regular-season NHL games.

The Canucks will continue their pre-season games on Thursday when they host the Seattle Kraken. Vancouver begins its regular season on October 12 against the Oilers in Edmonton.
