Bo Horvat played only three shifts in the third period Saturday.
Coach Travis Green stated after the game that Horvat's play was only average so you have to figure that he benched his best player to send a message. "I wasn’t crazy about his game," said Green. "We had 11 forwards (after Eriksson injury) and Bo was average. I wanted to try some different looks." Green used Burmistrov between Brock Boeser and Sven Baertschi with Horvat glued to the bench. Horvat has two goals but both were scored in the opener and he has done little since. Oct 16 - 9:44 AM

Vancouver Canucks head coach Travis Green can't guarantee that Horvat will be ready for the opener.

However, Green also added that although he can't make it a guarantee, he is 'pretty sure' Horvat will be able to suit up. Horvat is coming off a 52-point season and if the Canucks have any hope of making the playoffs, they'll need him to be healthy. He skated with his teammates today but didn't take part in any line rushes.

The Vancouver Canucks have announced that Bo Horvat will be out for the next week due to an upper-body injury.

The injury occurred on a hit from Drew Doughty during the first of two games against the Kings in China. Good news for Canucks fans is that he is expected to be ready in time for the regular season. Horvat is an excellent candidate to take another step forward this season.

Bo Horvat believes he's just scratching the surface of his NHL potential.

Horvat scored a team-high 20 goals and 52 points with the Canucks last season. The 22-year-old is certainly a big part of the team's future after signing a six-year, $33 million contract earlier this week. "I think I’m just scratching the surface," said Horvat. "I’ve only been in the league three years. These next six years is where I can really step up my game and prove myself. I think them signing me to a long-term deal means that they they have a lot of support for me and they believe in me. I’m really humbled by that and, obviously, I respect them for that."
Sep 9 - 8:14 PM

Bo Horvat's recently signed six-year, $33 million contract is front loaded with special attention made to 2020-21, which is a potential lockout season.

Horvat will earn $6.5 million this season and that will balloon to $7 million in 2018-19. After that he'll see his salary dip to $5.775 million in 2019-20 and then $3.5 million in 2020-21 when the CBA expiring might end up costing him some paychecks if the NHL ends up in another lockout. For the 2021-22 campaign his salary will go back to $5.775 million before ending with a $4.45 million season. We've been seeing a lot of contracts this summer work around the 2020-21 campaign as much as the legal structures will allow.
Sep 8 - 4:20 PM

Bo Horvat has agreed to a six-year, $33 million contract extension with the Vancouver Canucks.

That works out to a $5.5 million annual cap hit. He had 20 goals and 52 points in 81 games last season, but if the 22-year-old continues to grow as expected then this will end up being a pretty solid contract for Vancouver. Naturally this deal also removes the possibility of him missing some or all of training camp, so contract issues should have no impact on his play in 2017-18. "Bo has quickly become a foundational player on our team and we're thrilled for him to be a part of what we're building here long term," Canucks GM Jim Benning said. "His commitment and work ethic have helped his game improve each season. He's already a leader on our team and a young player fans can be excited to watch for years to come."
Sep 8 - 12:39 PM

Canucks GM Jim Benning is hoping to re-sign Bo Horvat by the week's end.

Horvat is a restricted free agent and we're getting to the point where concerns about him missing the start of training camp seem more rationale. That said, Benning remains upbeat. "We're still working on that...It's going well," Benning said. Canucks president Trevor Linden recently said that the Canucks have explored two to eight-year contracts with Horvat, so it will be very interesting to see what kind of contract he ends up getting.
Sep 4 - 11:53 AM

The Vancouver Canucks have discussed a number of different contract extension possibilities with Bo Horvat's camp.

"All options are on the table, I think we've explored many of the options, anything from two to eight (years)," president Trevor Linden TSN 1040 in Vancouver. "We've had some good conversations with Bo and his rep - Newport Sports - who I was a client of there's and we've done several contracts with them. I would say they have been very positive. We're looking forward to getting Bo under contract. Out of respect to the process, I don't want to say a whole lot, but things have been very positive, we're moving along and I don't see any issues." The 22-year-old had 20 goals and 52 points in 81 games last season.

Vancouver GM Jim Benning expects to have RFA Bo Horvat signed before training camp.

Benning chose not to comment publicly on the negotiation process, but he feels that talks are progressing. He said: "I would say that everything has been positive to this point and we'll just continue to go through the process because Bo is a very good young player for us and we want to figure something out that is fair to him and fair to the team." It's being speculated that Horvat could be seeking a contract worth around $5 million annually, which would be similar to deals that Mika Zibanejad and Nino Niederreiter signed this summer. Horvat led the Canucks with 52 points in 81 matches last year, while registering personal bests with 20 goals and 32 assists.
Aug 3 - 11:05 AM

Bo Horvat will be a restricted free agent this summer after completing his entry-level contract.

Canucks GM Jim Benning said that the team intends to meet with Horvat's representatives soon to start talking about a new deal. The 22-year-old center improved each year and he led the team in scoring in 2016-17. Horvat had 20 goals and 52 points in 81 games.
Apr 20 - 5:08 PM

Bo Horvat has not scored in his last 13 games.

Horvat does have six assists in the 13 games but it appears that once he hit the 20 goal mark he hit the wall. He has 51 points this season and look for a better campaign in 2017-18 as he gets more and more first line time.
Apr 3 - 10:49 AM

Bo Horvat notched his 20th goal of the campaign in a 2-1 win over Anaheim on Sunday.

The 21-year-old has shown steady development since breaking into the NHL in 2014, and now has 20 goals and 45 points in 64 games this season. He has five points in his past three games.
Mar 5 - 11:54 PM

Bo Horvat chipped in with three assists Saturday in a 4-3 win over the Kings.

The trio of helpers gives Horvat 25 assists and 44 points this season, the best on the Canucks. He teamed up on a line with Sven Baertschi (2 goals) and Loui Eriksson to give them a seven point night. Horvat is the Canucks best player at this time and should be on someone's team in most fantasy pools.
