Canucks: Bo Horvat traded to Islanders in multi-package deal
The Vancouver Canucks have traded captain Bo Horvat to the New York Islanders in exchange for forward Anthony Beauvillier, centre Aatu Raty and a protected 2023 first-round draft pick.
“First of all, we would like to thank Bo Horvat for all that he has done for the Vancouver Canucks during his nine seasons in Vancouver,” Canucks general manager Patrik Allvin said in a club release. “He has been a great leader and ambassador for our hockey club.
“As difficult as it is to trade away our captain, we are excited to add a high-quality 25-year-old winger in Beauvillier, a young centre in Raty, and a protected first-round draft pick. These pieces will be a big part of our development and growth moving forward.”
Beauvillier, 25, has appeared in 49 games with the Islanders this season and has 20 points (9-11) and 10 penalty minutes. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound forward has spent his entire career with the Islanders since entering the league in 2016-17. In 457 regular season games, Beauvillier has 209 points (102-107) and collected his 100th NHL goal during a three-point outing (2-1-3) on Dec. 23 against Florida. He has also appeared in 49 career NHL playoff games with the Islanders, compiling 29 points (15-14-29).
