Bo Horvat was a member of the Canucks what will most likely be half of his NHL career. The centerman's time with the Vancouver-based franchise came to an end in an attempt to load up on assets.

THE END OF AN ERA

Horvat moving to Long Island also meant that the Canucks sent away their captain. Patrik Allvin first struck a deal with Lou Lamoriello, which then unfolded a series of events the Canucks' fans are close to forget. The first deal saw Horvat going to the Islanders for a 2023 first-round selection, Anthony Beauvilier and Aatu Raty.

Horvat was quiet in his debut with Isles last year, but just like the Canucks, he's been thriving this year in his new colours. After collecting an underwhelming 16 points through 30 games last year, he has 9 through 10 games and one of the league's top Faceoff percentages.

AN UNEXPECTED TURN OF EVENTS?

Once that deal was closed, Allvin made a move that nobody could've anticipated, and he's now looking like a genie for it. The Canucks traded the 1st Round Pick they had just acquired, along with a 2nd Round Pick to achieve the high-end Defenseman Filip Hronek.

Ultimately, the deal is now looking like this:


CANUCKS GIVE

- Bo Horvat
- 2023 2nd Round Pick
- 2023 4th Round Pick

CANUCK RECEIVE

- Filip Hronek
- Anthony Beauvilier
- Aatu Raty


The trade has grown on the fan base; Hronek has been expanding into the Canucks very own version of Devon Toews. Matched with Quinn Hughes for the better parts of this season's debut, he's collected an impressive 11 assists through the first 11 games.
