Bo Horvat contract
The Islanders have signed recently acquired forward Bo Horvat to a 8-year, $68 million extension that does NOT include a no-trade clause.

The New York Islanders have signed recently acquired forward Bo Horvat to a 8-year, $68 million contract extension that has a full no-trade clause from 2023-24 through 2026-27 and converts to a 16-team ‘no-trade’ on July 1, 2027 for rest of his contract.

When Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello traded for Horvat it was expected he would sign a long-term deal and not test free agency this summer.

Horvat, 27, was drafted 9th overall by the Vancouver Canucks in the 1st round of the 2013 NHL entry draft. Currently over a career that extends 9 seasons, he has a total 420 points in 621 games played, and 16 playoffs points in 23 games played.

You can view the Islanders salary cap with Horvat’s updated cap hit to see how the Horvat contract affects the Islanders projected cap space for 2023-24.

What are fans saying about the Bo Horvat contract

The contract will be an albatross before it’s done, but how could Vancouver not make that work for a core player? Assuming he’d be willing to stay

Good deal, for a scrappy, captain, two way, 30+ goal scorer.

Horvat hasn’t played a game yet and gets extended. Maybe not too smart on both ends.
