He seems like a player built for playoff hockey. If we manage the improbable and draft him at #25, I'd be ecstatic! Again, keep in mind my opinion is entirely based on what the scouts say.
Kyle Woodlief last week, gave a ringing endorsement in a 690 interview:

Quote:
Bo Horvat: Big strong stud. Whatever territory he wants to occupy on the ice, that's what he's going to occupy, cause nobody is going to stop him from getting there. A big bull with good hands, who finishes all his checks. Plays well both ways, very responsible in his own end and great personal character. Captain material. RLR has him going 10th, but can't seem him dropping later than 12th or 13th max.
