I read somewhere while I was searching for answers that Bo Horvat is of Albanian descent...same as team-mate Max Domi. Sorry, can't recall the source, but it did seem legit. I think if he was Croatian it wouldn't be as hard to find that info.
About Tie Domi, way back when he was just a prospect for the Leafs, my cousin asked him if he was Croatian and he said yes...I was standing right there too...weird eh? I wonder if his first name is short for Tihomir? Perhaps he has some Croatian blood or he just doesn't know his backround too well.
