Horvat sniped in tonight's game vs Eerie.
Shutdown one of the best young players in the world in McDavid too.
Can't ask more from a guy than that. Horvat looks to be our Toews...
Future sure looks a lot brighter with him in our system.
Shades of Patrice Bergeron if you ask me.
McDavid draws a lot of comparison and hype like Crosby. Bergeron played against him in junior and also in the NHL - shutting down the best player while quietly scoring goals as well.
Toews and Bergeron are similar players, but Toews is a little better at everything. I don't see Horvat making the same impact as Toews, but I could see him being a similar player to Bergeron.
Or Bolland. I know people hate him around here, but in 2005 Bolland was on the London Knights team that shut out Sidney Crosby's Rimouski Oceanic to win the Memorial Cup (Different personality wise, but the skill set is similar).
