Horvat will play for Team Canada at the 2018 IIHF World Championships. Despite missing almost 20 games due to injury, Horvat still had a very successful 2017-18 campaign in Vancouver, posting a career-high 22 goals in 64 games. Horvat now heads to Denmark, where he will represent Team Canada for the first time since 2014 (World Juniors). A strong showing in his first World Championships alongside talented players such as Connor McDavid and Mathew Barzal would certainly give a boost to his confidence and fantasy value entering 2018-19.
Horvat scored a goal and dished out an assist in the third period of Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over Columbus. Horvat busted out of a short four-game slump with his two-point performance. Despite missing 18 games earlier this season, the 22-year-old center has still managed 21 goals and 42 points in 61 games, with 12 of those coming on the man advantage. Horvat should continue to get better each season and will continue being a solid fantasy asset.
Horvat hit the 20-goal mark for the second consecutive season Thursday, notching a goal and an assist in a win over Chicago. Horvat has missed significant time this year, but the power forward has still managed to score as many times in 56 games this season as he did in 81 games last season. The second-line center is up to 40 points and has netted three game-winning goals. Vancouver may be out of playoff contention, but Horvat should still deliver offense down the stretch in a prominent role.
Horvat scored and dished out two apples Wednesday in a 6-5 overtime loss to the Rangers. Horvat has had a balanced season, with 17 in both the goals and assists categories. However, it's also been a frustrating one, as he hasn't consistently been able to showcase his obvious talent. His pace suggests better things for him in future seasons if he can stay healthy, but 2017-18 looks like it'll go down as a learning experience for the young center.
Horvat scored his 11th goal of the season in Tuesday's overtime win over the Avalanche. Horvat opened the scoring with a breakaway beauty that got Vancouver off to a hot start. It was his first tally since returning to the lineup following an 18-game injury absence (leg). Horvat has looked like his usual dynamite self in his first four games back, collecting three points and averaging around 20 minutes of ice time. The 22-year-old has put up 23 points in 32 games this season and is sporting a tidy plus-6 rating. Now that the first one is out of the way, look for Horvat to start scoring more regularly.
