It was recently reported that Vancouver Canucks forward Bo Horvat has rejected the team's recent contract offer, which is not the first they have offered him. The Canucks are said to have made the highest offer that they were able to allocate to his deal, but Horvat ultimately decided to turn it down.

It was recently reported that Vancouver Canucks forward Bo Horvat has rejected the team’s recent contract offer, which is not the first they have offered him. The Canucks are said to have made the highest offer that they were able to allocate to his deal, but Horvat ultimately decided to turn it down.

Horvat, who has been with the Canucks since being selected ninth overall in the 2013 NHL Draft, has become a crucial player for the team. In the 2021-2022 season, he set career highs in goals (31) and had his third highest career points total (52). He was named the team’s captain in 2019.

Despite Horvat’s importance to the team, it seems that the two sides were unable to reach an agreement on a new contract. The Canucks will now reportedly take the best offer for Horvat, and it remains to be seen where he will end up.

Many fans are disappointed by the news and are hoping that the team will be able to find a way to keep Horvat in Vancouver. However, with the disagreements in value and lack of cap space for the Canucks, it may be difficult for the Canucks to match offers from other teams if he decides to hold out until free agency. The Canucks would rather get some sort of return through a trade instead of letting him walk for free in the summer.

Horvat is currently only 27 years old and still has a lot of top level hockey to be played, he has put up just shy of 400 points in his first 600 games in the NHL.

It will be interesting to see how this situation develops and where Horvat ends up. For now, Canucks fans will have to wait and see what the future holds for their captain.
