Horvat collected a trio of assists in Saturday's win over Los Angeles. Horvat was an alternate captain for the first time in his NHL career, as he now wears the letter with the departure of Alex Burrows to Ottawa. The 21-year-old has kicked off the month of March with a bang, piling on four points in his first two games. Horvat has emerged as the present and future of the Canucks and his 44 points (19 goals) have made him the team's most dynamic fantasy option. Keep him rolling, as he's a consistent producer that's only going to improve.
Horvat is the first Canucks player to score 20 goals in a season prior to his 22nd birthday since Daniel Sedin accomplished the feat in the 2000-01 season, according to Sportsnet. There haven't been many bright spots in Vancouver this season but the All-Star Horvat certainly is one of them. He had a multi-point game Saturday against the Kings, and he has at least one goal in back-to-back games to kick off the month of March. Horvat is a must-start in all fantasy formats, and an even better value in pools not penalizing plus-minus rating.
Horvat (foot) is projected to return for Thursday night's showdown in St. Louis. After practicing Thursday morning and taking line rushes with seemingly no issues, it seems safe to say that Horvat will make his return to the lineup after just one game out. The young pivot is slated to center Vancouver's second line with Alex Burrows and Jannik Hansen on his wings. He'll look to pick up where he left off, having recorded three goals and three assists in his last five appearances.
Horvat (foot) is a game-time decision for Thursday's game in St. Louis. The All-Star participated in Thursday's morning skate, rotating with Brandon Gaunce as third-line center. This is great news for Vancouver, as Horvat has been one of their only bright spots this season, turning in an impressive 17 goals and 38 points in 56 games. Horvat was heating up with six points in five games prior to the injury, which makes him an intriguing fantasy option if he's able to suit up.
Horvat (leg) will miss Tuesday's matchup with Pittsburgh, Jon Abbott of TSN 1040 reports. Horvat has racked up six points in his last five outings, including a goal and an assist on the power-play, so losing him for an extended time could knock them out of the race for a playoff spot. Brendan Gaunce, who was recalled from AHL Utica on Monday, will fill in for Horvat for the time being. The 21-year-old Ontario native remains day-to-day and has not been ruled out versus the Blues on Thursday.
