Vancouver Canucks‘ 1st round pick in the 2013 draft (#9 overall) center Bo Horvat(53) started his rookie season with the on the opening night roster but was unable to crack the lineup, so less than a month into 2014/2015 he was sent down on a conditioning reassignment to minor league affiliate Utica Comets.
In 5 AHL games he was somewhat oddly unable to come up with a point but still showed enough that he should be up with the parent club.
The 6′ 216 lbs. former two-time 2012 and 2013 OHL Champion continued to work hard and finally found a spot on the team.
He was virtually a point-per-game player in three seasons with London Knights.
At only 19-years old and leaving a year early from junior hockey, he plays the game like a true power forward and in his 7th NHL game finally came up with his first pro goal in the team’s 4-3 loss.
He did appear in the full slate of preseason match ups and was credited with an unofficial tally.
Signed to a three-year entry level deal, he should be a contributor for a long-time in Western Canada.
