I think this is the first time any of us have seen Horvat in a full on Canucks jersey and boy does he look good!

Sry it's still summer so I'm posting this thread. Just a little bit of insight into what Bo Horvat did last week for the Upper Deck Rookie card photo shoot.

Congrats to him for being recognized as one of the better rookies! Too bad Shinkaruk wasn't invited.

Aaron Rome 1 goal in 114 games and oh yeah 10 assists. Thats 11 points people..that's a decent .0964 points per game average. He's a power play expert at turn overs and wide shots. He's a depth defenceman for anyone looking to win the stanley cup. A key here is he is very slow and takes timely penalties because he is an expert at head games. Clearly the most underrated underachiever of all time. He also has a mean 5 oclock shadow. MMMMM Aaron Rome goes down smooth like an unshaked can of Guinness that has been in the garage for awhile. MMM Aaron Rome put him on your powerplay, let him kill penalties, a stud...a steed... half cro magnon man part time bowling champion but supremely talented Defenceman. Rome for the Norris! I think Rome was solid like Rory Fitzpatrick or Eric Weinrich...Rome could use a yellow visor for that matter ...really give him the edge

+1, thanks for the update!

I think it's cool that Jensen was there too, it's nice to see some Canucks finally at the rookie card photo shoot! It's also a good indication of where the NHLPA ranks these rookies.

I see the 3, obviously he is not wearing a 3 by itself, anyone know the rest of the jersey number?

Edit: I looked on google images, I take it he is partial to #13, last worn by Raffi.

Thanks Avlanche.

i was actually incorrect, based off a bad source. I looked at the beckett article and apparently they all wore different numbers. horvat was 53.

So, interesting, #53 is available. Prab Rai wore it, or at least a jersey with that number it is for sale with his name on it.
http://www.myiceoutf...stitched-jersey
Edit: He wore it http://vansunsportsb...gton-to-wolves/

On an odd note, Amazon has a rookie card of Thomas Gradin advetised as #53, and while the number on the jersey could be mistaken for #53, but the number on the top of the glove cannot.
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004IJ59WS

I wondered if anyone that we recently signed might want #53, and thought Zach Hamill might, as a Google search has Yahoo Sports listing him as #53
http://ca.sports.yah...hl/players/4247
But they have their info wrong as well, he played #52 for the Bruins as shown by the pics.

53 would just be a temporary number given to him, not his actual chosen number.

also, didn't shirokov wear 53?


He wore 65 and then 25 i believe.

53 was what Horvat wore at prospects camp too, and 46 is looking like Jensen's number - i think in tribute to his fellow Dane, Hansen.

I can't find him him (Shirikov) in 53. I find him in 52 on the Moose, 52 in Russia, and in 65 and 25 on the Canucks.

when they make the team full time they will have to option to use a lower, permanent number. those high numbers are just temporary numbers for prospects.

Well Horvat wears #53 for the London Knights so maybe he wants to wear it.

A few guys have tended towards keeping the high numbers, Horvat may keep #53, besides what I mentioned earlier, It has not been used on the team.

Based on his high draft status, and the canucks management tendency to "persuade" players to wear lower numbers (forcing Shirokov to wear 25 instead of 52) i highly doubt Horvat will wear 53 for an extended period of time in the NHL.

I think Horvat can challenge for a third or fourth line spot right now.

Cool to see Nick and Bo both there! Yeah like you said OP, would've thought Hunter could've made it too.

On a side note, what's with the white helmet - dark jersey thing they have going with Bo and Morgan Rielly(?) in the video? The Flames prospect got to wear matching gear (just saying).
