Honestly I would even worry about it. Just try not to do it again. I’ve seen boards with all of that’s stuff gone and they’re fine. Getting a new logic board is not necessary.

You need to get a new logic board. That’s not safe for you or the phone, the thermal paste that was there is now exposed and the processor can no longer connecting to any cooling device. The device is going to overheat and break itself or worse.

Based on the pictures the OP provided, none of what you fear is actually true. It's just the black sheathing that is slightly torn.
