Former #53 for the London Knights, Bo Horvat, just scored his first NHL goal with the Vancouver Canucks (Nov 21st).
There was a looming 9 game deadline when the Canucks would need to make a call and either send him back down to junior, or keep him with the Canucks.
Head Coach Willie Desjardins & Co had way too much fun breaking the news to him:
“Coach came in the room after video and showed one of my bad clips and then ended off with one of my good clips and asked me which player I’m going to be…”
At 19, he’s already got a goal & 3 assists in 9 games so far this season!
