Confirmed: Horvat will stay with Canucks

@VanCanucks: Coach Willie Desjardins confirmed during team meeting this morning that @BoHorvat will remain with the team. # Canucks

The right decision imo. So exciting to finally have a young player in our lineup. Congrats Bo!

No World Junior camp either:

I am sure this decision was not unanimous .

You base this on what?

Bo has done exactly what WD and Benning said the young guys had to to make the team. He has played better than the guys he would be replacing. TO have sent him down would have been to send the wrong message to all the prospects. It's all about his development and he has been getting better every game.

Unlike the Oilers rookies, Bo is a man at 19 both physically and mentally. He also has a lesser role so less pressure than the Oiler kids and can play more sheltered minutes if needed (not that he has needed that protection so far).

Sending him down could have really hurt his development from a mental perspective and I doubt he has anything to learn in juniors.

Very happy for him. He's a classy kid and I look forward to watching him develop further. I expect some off shifts/games as he learns the big league but he exhibits all the attributes to be a force and a key piece of this team going forward.

Yay. Him Dorsett and the renewed Honey Badger have good chemistry. Hopefully he's a regular on that fourth line. Maybe even steal some third line minutes.

DOrsett said after last game, he would be happy to play alongside BO for the rest of the year. Pretty good endorsement from an experienced vet.
