Canucks: 3 takeaways from Bo Horvat’s first year as captain

Not that there was ever any doubt, but after just one season as the captain of the Vancouver Canucks, it’s safe to say that Bo Horvat has proven to be a natural-born leader and the right man for the job. This season the 25-year-old was the best 2C in Van-City since Ryan Kesler, and he took another big step forward this season in becoming a dominant two-way player.

The passing of the torch was a long time coming for the new Canucks captain, but it paid off. Groomed by two of the best leaders to ever step foot inside the Vancouver locker room, Horvat learned patience, hard work, and how to be the perfect role model athlete long before he ever became captain.
