The 25-year-old's agreement means that he will avoid arbitration with the Canucks, as he was a restricted free agent.
Last season, the Burnsville, Minnesota native put up 46 points (23 G, 23 A) in 71 games.
Near the end of the year, Boeser told reporters that he was struggling with the poor health of his father, Duke.
Duke passed away at the end of May following a battle with cancer and Parkinson's.

In 324 regular season games, the 6 ft 1 in right winger has contributed 121 goals and 135 assists parts of six seasons.
Boeser re-signing with Vancouver solidifies the team's desire to be competitive, as they have recently signed KHL star Andrei Kuzmenko.
