The center player has set record highs in career past year with 20 goals and 52 points, who has missed only one of the 82 meetings of his team.

As a result, the Canucks' looming commitment to the young center will be carrying an annual salary cap hit of $5.5 million through the 2022-23 campaign.

Jim Benning announced on Friday that the team has signed centre Bo Horvat to a six-year contract extension. The 22-year-old has already played in 231 games to this point of his career, scoring 49 goals and adding 68 assists to his tally.

If he can start contributing more with the extra attacker, Horvat could join the upper tier of fantasy talents. While Vancouver finished seventh in the Pacific Division with only 69 points, Horvat had career numbers across the board. "I couldn't be more excited to help this team win".

Horvat had a career year in 2016-17, breaking the 50-point mark.

The club's lone representative at last season's all-star game, Horvat is also viewed by many as the captain-in-waiting in Vancouver whenever the tenure of Henrik Sedin, who along with brother Daniel turns 37 at the end of the month, comes to an end.
