CANUCKS CURRENTLY NOT SHOPPING CAPTAIN BO HORVAT

NOV 28, 2022  (11H33)      COOPER GODIN
Despite rumours for the last several weeks about a move being inevitable leading up to the trade deadline due to Vancouver's poor start, the Canucks are reportedly not shopping captain Bo Horvat.

"I know Vancouver wants to keep him. They recognize his value; they can see the type of character he is," Darren Dreger said. "He's not going to go wire-to-wire with this level of offence, but they've seen enough to know that he's an interesting and needed piece moving forward."

He added, "So we in the media we gotta pump the brakes on the speculation. Just because the negotiation hasn't concluded to this point, maybe it hasn't started with any sense of vigour at this point, doesn't mean they're shopping him. I know they're not shopping him. And I know they want to keep him in Vancouver."

Horvat, 27, is in the final year of his contract and is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st. If he hits free agency on Canada Day, he's set for a big payday, given his play so far this season.


In 22 games, the London (Ontario) native has 24 points (17 goals, seven assists), six penalty minutes and is a plus-one. His 17 goals is good enough for second in the entire NHL, only one behind Dallas Stars forward Jason Robertson.
