The Vancouver Canucks are trusting the process.

GM Jim Benning announced on Friday that the team has signed centre Bo Horvat to a six-year contract extension. It’s worth an average annual value of $5.5 million.

For Horvat, he is at peace with his decision to stay in Vancouver.

“It’s a great feeling to be able to continue my career for six more seasons in Vancouver and I’m grateful to the Aquilini family and Canucks management group for making this possible” said Horvat.

Moreover, the Canucks hope that he can build off what was a career year for him last season.

Horvat registered career-highs in goals (20), assists (32) and points (52) in his third season with the Canucks.

The Rodney, Ontario native was originally drafted by Vancouver 9th overall at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. Vancouver acquired this pick by trading Cory Schneider to the New Jersey Devils.
