Bo Horvat was impressed his coaches with his play all over the ice.
The ninth pick in the 2013 Draft, Horvat has been playing on the fourth line with Derek Dorsett and Jannik Hansen. "You’ve got to make decisions right on the spot and being a young guy, you try not to make too many mistakes," said Horvat. "There are times when I can hang on to the puck more and show a little more offence, but for now it’s just doing the little things, and if I do that, it should be good. They have a lot of confidence in me and staying here is only going to make me that much better. And the way we’re contributing shows a lot about our line and the skill we have." Horvat has only a goal and five points in 18 games but expect a lot more in the seasons to come when he moves up the depth chart and becomes a top-six forward. Dec 20 - 10:27 AM

Bo Horvat won't join Team Canada for the World Juniors.

Vancouver wants to keep Horvat on the NHL roster. He has a goal and five points in 17 contests in 2014-15.
Dec 15 - 3:24 PM

Bo Horvat will stick with the Vancouver Canucks rather than be returned to the OHL London Knights.

Horvat has a goal and four points in eight games this season. Once he crosses the 10-game threshold, this will officially count as the first season of his entry-level contract.

Bo Horvat had three assists in Vancouver's 4-1 win against Chicago on Sunday.

Jannik Hansen had a hat trick for the Canucks and Horvat assisted on each of his goals. It was a big night for Horvat, who just scored his first NHL goal and point on Thursday. On top of that, he logged 14:27 minutes of ice time, which is encouraging given that he's typically spent fewer than 10 minutes on the ice so far in his rookie campaign. He's got plenty of offensive upside and is consequently worth keeping an eye on.

Bo Horvat scored his first NHL goal in Vancouver's 4-3 shootout loss to Anaheim on Thursday.

The 19-year-old got the Canucks on the board when they were trailing 2-0 in the game. Horvat's goal sparked a comeback and Vancouver eventually grabbed a 3-2 lead in the game. Unfortunately, Matt Beleskey tied the game in the third period and the Ducks eventually won in a shootout. Horvat is more of a dynasty pick because he hasn't contributed much in limited minutes this season. He has one goal in seven games.

The Vancouver Canucks recalled center Bo Horvat from the AHL on Sunday.

Horvat, 19, was unable to collect a point during a two-week conditioning stint in the AHL.
Nov 2 - 2:12 PM

Bo Horvat is expected to be recalled on Sunday from Utica.

Horvat was sent down 14 days ago on a two-week conditioning stint and must be returned to junior hockey if he does not stick with the Canucks. Stay tuned.
Nov 2 - 9:07 AM

The Vancouver Canucks announced that they have assigned Bo Horvat to the Utica Comets on a conditioning assignment.

Horvat was injured during the preseason and hasn't played a game during the regular season yet. The 19-year-old registered 74 points in 54 games with the London Knights in the OHL last season.
Oct 19 - 1:28 PM

Bo Horvat (shoulder) resumed practicing with the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday.

"I was getting a little stressed out being off the ice for so long and stuff like that after a good preseason," said Horvat. "It was awesome to get back out there with the guys and start practicing again, start getting my speed back and my timing." He sustained the injury on Oct. 2 and that delayed his probable NHL debut. There's no firm return date for him yet, but it sounds like he'll be back sooner rather than later.
Oct 17 - 12:53 PM

Bo Horvat's shoulder injury isn't as bad as the Canucks initially feared.

More specifically, Horvat didn't break any bones. He sustained the injury during Thursday's game and should be regarded as day-to-day for now.
Oct 3 - 5:34 PM

Bo Horvat left early in the first period of Thursday's game with an upper-body injury.

Horvat absorbed a big hit from Edmonton's Tyler Pitlick. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Oct 3 - 11:35 AM

Bo Horvat's chances of making the team have improved since Vancouver decided to waive Jakob Markstrom.

The Canucks are now committed to carrying two goaltenders instead of three, which naturally opens up another roster spot for a different position. Horvat isn't the only candidate to fill that spot, but this is arguably a bigger opportunity for him than some of the other candidates, because Horvat is only eligible to play in Vancouver or the Ontario Hockey League.
Sep 29 - 11:03 AM

Bo Horvat looks like he is going to get a real chance to break with the Vancouver Canucks out of training camp as he was on a line with veterans Shawn Matthais and Derek Dorsett.

This has to be good news for the ninth overall pick in the 2013 draft and he already said that he would be more than happy to be a shutdown center if he had to, and not a top-two scoring center. "It's awesome," Horvat said of his linemates. "Matthias and Dorsett are really good hockey players and it's an honor to be put between them. I thought we had a good practice out there today. We just have to keep going if I want to stay on that line." Horvat is worth looking at in dynasty leagues as he has a lot of offensive potential but we cannot recommend him this season.
Sep 20 - 12:33 PM

Bo Horvat is perfectly willing to serve as a shutdown center if it gets him into the NHL.

"As a hockey player, you always want to get points, you always want to contribute that way but … if I just play my game, the points are going to come," Horvat said. He does have the potential to be effective offensively in the NHL, but if he did make the Canucks in 2014-15, there's a fair chance that he would start on Vancouver's third or fourth line. The question Vancouver needs to ask itself is if Horvat is better served getting limited playing time in the NHL or if he should head back to the OHL where he'll be a leader, but won't get experience playing against men. He's not eligible to start the season in the AHL.

Bo Horvat received an average grade from coach Travis Green following the prospects game on Friday.

Horvat was drafted ninth overall in 2013 and managed 30 goals and 74 points in 54 games last season with London of the OHL. "I thought Bo was okay," Green said. "Average. It was a tough night for forwards. We didn't get the puck a lot. I thought we spent a lot of time in our zone so guys like Horvat, Hunter Shinkaruk and Nick Jensen, you know the offensive-minded guys, I'm guessing they felt they were spinning their wheels a little bit and doing a lot of grunt work in their own zone." Horvat is in tough to make the Canucks this season but the opportunity to play for Team Canada at the World U20 Championships in Toronto and Montreal if he doesn't make the NHL, should help.
