Observations:

 

February 2015 – While it may have officially started in January (30th), Horvat’s recent hot streak has made February one to remember for the young man. He has put up five points, including three goals and a three-game point streak (one goal, two assists) in the last seven games. He has seen his ice-time increase by an average of four minutes per game, including a career-high 14:59 versus the Penguins on February 7th,  which resulted in one of his goals. This is extremely positive for everybody involved, as the 19-year-old has now shown he can be counted on for much more than just steady defensive play over the next few years.

November 2014 – Bo Horvat scored his first career NHL goal on November 20th versus the Anaheim Ducks and posted a three assist game one game later versus a talented Chicago Blackhawks roster. While the string of points are great news, Bo Horvat is impressing the Canucks brass with his outstanding maturity and defensive presence. Early in the season, Horvat sits with a 60% faceoff proficiency rate and his minutes are starting to climb. On November 25th, Head Coach Willie Desjardins announced to Bo and his teammates that he will be staying with the Vancouver Canucks. See Video Below. Unfortunately for Hockey Canada, this news likely keeps Horvat from being part of the 2015 World Junior team. Brendan Ross

 

November – Bo Horvat stuck with the Canucks after a solid training camp, but he has not been a fixture in the lineup only playing in six of 19 games and recording no points (two PIM, minus-1). The organization is being cautious with his development, as they are stretching out his stay as long as possible before
