Bo Horvat's goal over the summer will be to work on his skating.
"For me, it’s to keep working on my skating — you can never be too fast," Horvat said. "That’s something I already know and I know it’s something I have to keep working on all summer." Before he begins his summer training though, he's participating in the 2018 World Championship as a member of Team Canada. The Canadians will open the tournament with a game against Team USA on Friday. May 4 - 11:36 AM

Bo Horvat might become the Vancouver Canucks' next captain.

Henrik Sedin has held that role since 2010, but his retirement has left the 'C' vacant. Over his four seasons with the Canucks, Horvat has become a significant player with Vancouver, to the point where he averaged 19:21 minutes per game this season. He finished 2017-18 with 22 goals and 44 points in 64 contests, which was good for fourth place in the team's scoring race - second if you exclude the now retired Sedin twins. Horvat is on the young side at the age of 23, but that might make sense for the rebuilding squad.
Apr 9 - 5:44 AM

The Arizona Coyotes shutout the Vancouver Canucks 1-0 on Sunday night.

Neither the Canucks or Coyotes could get much of anything going offensively tonight. Bo Horvat finished tied with Clayton Keller for a game-high five shots on goal, but none of them could crack the back of the net. Horvat sits at 37 points and needs three goals to eclipses last season's total of 20 with 13 games remaining.

Bo Horvat recorded an assist in Vancouver's 4-3 overtime win against the Islanders on Monday.

Mar 6 - 7:02 AM

Bo Horvat picked up a goal with two assists and a plus-3 rating on five shots on goal in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime loss against the Rangers.

Horvat snapped a three-game scoreless skid with the three-point night, his second longest scoreless drought since he went without a point from the second regular-season game through the fifth game from Oct. 10-17. Despite the recent scoreless skid he remains a must-start across most formats, especially in pools that do not penalize plus/minus rating.
Mar 1 - 2:24 AM

Bo Horvat scored his 16th goal of the season on a pass from All-Star Brock Boeser in Tuesday's 5-4 loss against the Avalanche.

Horvat scored for the third consecutive game, and the fifth outing in the past six contests. He was playing at an All-Star level early in the season, but an early-December injury stunted his growth. After a exhibiting a little bit of rust in the first nine games of his return, he has re-discovered his scoring touch and is once again a potent fantasy force, one of few in Vancouver this season.
Feb 21 - 4:34 AM

Bo Horvat picked up a goal with a pair of assists and a plus-1 rating in Wednesday's 4-3 loss against the visiting Florida Panthers.

Horvat has posted games with back-to-back goals for the second time since Jan. 20. Since returning from a long-term ankle injury he has notched four goals with nine points across 11 games. Before his injury he was flying along and with his return he gives Vancouver another much-needed offensive option. He is worth scooping up off the waiver wire if he is still available.
Feb 15 - 4:09 AM

Jan 21 - 7:44 PM

Bo Horvat has apparently been activated ahead of Sunday's match against Winnipeg.

Horvat has missed the last five weeks with a fractured ankle, but it seems like he will suit up against the Jets. At the time of his injury, Horvat was the Canucks' best player with 20 points in 28 games. Since that time Brock Boeser stepped up big time (41 points in 43 games) and will now form a great duo with Horvat. Activate Horvat without delay.
Jan 21 - 1:49 PM

Bo Horvat (ankle) has been ruled out of tonight's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

The All-Star game will take place on January 29th this season, giving Horvat about a four-week timeline. He has 20 points in 28 games this season and the Canucks must be itching to get back their talented center. Get ready to scoop him up in fantasy leagues by the end of the month.
Jan 3 - 3:42 PM
