The Canucks believe Bo Horvat can live up to higher expectations.
"I have tremendous respect for Bo. Bo is very mature kid. But there were no expectations on him whatsoever and now there is," said President of Hockey Operations Trevor Linden. "There is going to be significant pressure on him this year, significant exterior pressure on him. That's a challenge. It's not that Bo can't handle it. If anyone can, he can. But it is a challenge." Linden intends to help out anyway he can, but Horvat should be able to continue to develop on Vancouver's third line. Aug 14 - 6:26 PM

The arrival of Brandon Sutter after a trade with Pittsburgh will probably bump Bo Horvat down the depth chart.

Sutter is projected to be Vancouver's second-line center, so that could place Horvat on the third unit for the start of the season. Horvat is expected to build on his 25-point rookie campaign, but his development won't be aided by ice time on a scoring combination. That obviously hurts his fantasy value going into this year, but he wasn't likely to contribute enough to warrant much attention anyway.

The Vancouver Canucks will not trade Bo Horvat.

GM Jim Benning notes that the Canucks are "comfortable at No. 23" in this month's Entry Draft, but that doesn't mean they're going to sit back and see who, or what, comes to them. It's just that Horvat isn't going anywhere. "We're just starting to get some depth now with our young prospects and I don't want to give any of them up," Benning continued. The Canucks surprised many by making the playoffs last season, and they first have a goalie surplus "problem", if you wish to call it that, to solve. Benning also said that he's "going to try and recover a second-round pick."

Bo Horvat was tied for first among Vancouver Canuck players in playoff points.

The talented 20-year-old had a goal and four points which tied him along with the Sedin twins, Radim Vrbata and Jannik Hansen for the team lead. He was also outstanding at the faceoff dot Saturday, winning 11 of 14. He is ready to explode offensively and is worth selecting next season in most pools, especially keeper pools as he can be a force in the years to come.

Bo Horvat scored his first playoff goal in Vancouver's 2-1 series opening loss to Calgary on Wednesday night.

The goal was a result of dogged-puck pursuit and some puck luck as the it rattled off some skates before beating Calgary goalie Jonas Hiller to open the scoring. The rookie logged 13:36 of ice time in what was a pretty impressive debut aside from his 30% efficiency in the face-off dot. Alex Edler and Jannik Hansen picked up assists on the lone goal.

Bo Horvat has nary a point in his last eight games.

Horvat, who celebrated his 20th birthday on Sunday, was the Canucks first pick and ninth overall in 2013. He has 13 goals and 23 points in 65 games. Not too bad for the rookie.

Bo Horvat found the back of the net in a 4-1 win over Los Angeles.

Horvat has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four contests. He has 13 goals and 23 points in 57 games in 2014-15. That's good for 13th place among rookies in the scoring race.

Bo Horvat scored his 12th goal of the season after Blue Jackets' center Mark Letestu turned it over by the top of the wrong slot. However, the Blue Jackets would go on to win 6-2 on Thursday night.

Horvat's goal opened the scoring, and it was pretty shot too. Beating Sergei Bobrovsky over the shoulder before the netminder could get set. Horvat now has two goals and three points over his last five games. He also has 22 points on the season.
Mar 20 - 2:02 AM

Vancouver Canucks coach Willie Desjardins has been very happy with Bo Horvat's progress over his rookie season.

"He's quite a bit better," Desjardins said. "At the start, he just didn't have that tempo or the confidence, either. He wouldn't take any chances because he was afraid if he didn't score, he'd get sent down. He certainly exceeded my expectations. I didn't expect to play him late in games on faceoffs or any of those situations." Horvat has impressed defensively, but he also feels he has something to prove when it comes to his offensive game. He's been solid offensively too for a 19-year-old rookie with 11 goals and 20 points in 52 contests. It wouldn't be surprising if he had fantasy value in standard leagues in a couple years.

Bo Horvat scored a goal in a 2-1 victory over Anaheim Monday night.

Horvat has now found the back of the net in back-to-back games. At the age of 19, he's enjoying a solid rookie season with 11 goals and 20 points in 52 contests.
Mar 10 - 11:56 AM

Bo Horvat scored once and was the only Canuck over 50 percent on the face off draw Saturday.

Horvat now has 10 goals and 19 points as the 19-year-old looks to be grabbing control of the second line center spot. His future looks bright and do not forget about him next season.
Mar 8 - 11:11 AM

Bo Horvat credits his growing confidence as a contributing factor in his recent offensive outburst.

Horvat has four goals and eight points in his last 10 games after recording eight points in his first 32 contests. "I am carrying the puck a little bit more than I was at the beginning of the year," Horvat said. "To have that confidence and not be afraid to make mistakes has definitely helped me out. It’s nice to have that confidence to take the puck to the net and not give too much respect to your opponent." We expect Horvat to cool down offensively, but in the long run he has a lot of potential. Horvat could develop into a great two-way forward and fantasy owners should keep a close eye on him next season and he'll be a potential breakout candidate.
Feb 19 - 11:01 AM

Bo Horvat scored a goal in Vancouver's 3-2 victory over Minnesota.

That extended Horvat's point streak to four games. The 19-year-old rookie has seven goals and nine assists in 42 contests in 2014-15.
Feb 17 - 11:31 AM

Bo Horvat scored his fifth of the season Saturday and now has five points in his last seven games.

Horvat was selected with the ninth pick of the 2013 Draft in a controversial trade that sent Cory Schneider to New Jersey but he is starting to show his stuff of late. Horvat is up to 12 points in 37 games this season. He should break out and become a top-six forward but the Canucks may still want to take things slowly with Horvat and not rush him.
Feb 8 - 11:37 AM

Bo Horvat scored a goal in a 2-1 victory over Florida.

Horvat has three goals and eight points in 30 contests this season. He has the potential to become a productive top-six forward someday, but for now he doesn't have any fantasy value in standard leagues.
