A reporter has disclosed that six members of the Vancouver Canucks will be scratched for tonight's critical Game Seven against the Edmonton Oilers.

Ahead of the decisive matchup, the Canucks held an optional morning skate. Thomas Drance of *The Athletic* confirmed the status of the six players:
"Gate closed at a highly optional Game 7 morning skate.

Thatcher Demko was working with Podkolzin, Juulsen, Karlsson, Friedman and Wolanin - so those are your projected Game 7 #Canucks scratches."

Additionally, Brock Boeser will not be participating in the game due to a blood clot issue:
"Sounds like #Canucks Brock Boeser's blood clot developed in his leg, something team medical staff found after Game 6.

He has been placed on blood thinning medication and is not expected to be available to play again this season.

Brutal break for #Canucks' leading goal scorer."

It will be challenging for these players to miss such an important game, as Game Sevens are rare opportunities in a career. However, as professionals, their primary objective is to contribute effectively to their team.
The Edmonton Oilers will need to exploit the gaps in Rick Tocchet's lineup.
Stay tuned for updates.
