|Undrafted - Under 20|
|Written by Brendan Ross|
March 2013 - Not surprisingly, Bo Horvat showed well in the Best Faceoff (2nd) and Best Shot Blocking (1st) categories of the annual OHL Western Conference Poll. Horvat had a very strong regular season competing hard at both ends of the rink and tallied 33 goals and 61 points in 67 games for the London Knights. Brendan Ross
February 2013 – This future captain of an NHL team owns a complete package of skills and the intangibles of no other player in this draft class. Understanding and reading the game is Horvat’s greatest asset and it is evident in his ability to play in all three zones of the ice. He has been high on this list since last season and now other scouting services are beginning to realize that Horvat is much more than just a defensive forward (although, good luck winning a faceoff against him). He lacks top end speed but his powerful skating stride makes him a difficult player to knock off the puck especially when he combines his underrated puck control skills and intense never-quit attitude in board battles.

Fantasy Outlook: B+
Horvat is a versatile player with underrated offensive skills. He could eventually be pigeon-holed into a shutdown role but he does have the offensive skills and smarts to contribute points in a top-6 role. Horvat can play all three forward positions very well so that is an added bonus in positional fantasy leagues.
