Batchelor: I see Horvat stepping into a leadership role with the Canucks, there's definitely a different feel to the dressing room
September 21 2018
Brendan Batchelor says there is a change in the culture in the Canucks dressing room as the team turns the page on the Sedin era. Bo Horvat and Brock Boeser are ready to step into leadership roles. Elias Pettersson looked great again in his second preseason game, although he did struggle in the face off circle, winning just 2 of 11 face offs Thursday night. Batchelor thinks that Pettersson will start the season at centre, but he could slide over to wing at some point.
