The London Knights have been one of the biggest powerhouses in the OHL for years, and 2013 was no different. With a stacked up club, they've got a number of high profile prospects, including Horvath. A strong two way player, Bo Horvath has been one of the top PKers and shot blockers for the OHL Champions. A strong scoring threat in addition to his willingness to take the body, he's a player that opponents have to be aware of every time he's on the ice.

Scouting Reports:

London had a talented group of 94 birth dates in 2012, Horvat is one of several Knights who will make their mark for 2013. Horvat is a talented forward who even in a limited role last season managed to produce some admirable numbers. More effective down the middle, Horvat competes hard and has great strength to effectively play his game. Horvat has a number of intangibles including great leadership which are also elements of his game that make him a valued NHL prospect and a player who projects as a value pick in the 2nd half of Round 1.

Why He'd Be A Good Fit In Columbus:

Horvath is a very similar player to Boone Jenner, in particular the "never quit" style of play and physicality. While his scoring ability may not translate immediately to the NHL, the two way play and commitment to shot blocking will fit well in almost any coach's system, and his attitude and strong character fit well with the culture that's being established in Columbus.
