The Vancouver Canucks have reassigned centre Bo Horvat to the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League.

The Knights broke the news to their fans via Twitter Sunday afternoon, writing: "We are proud to announce that @BoHorvat will be back with the boys after being re-assigned by the @VanCanucks! #WelcomeBackBo".

The Canucks took Horvat with the ninth overall selection in the 2013 NHL Draft, the pick they acquired from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for goaltender Cory Schneider.

Horvat, a London native, scored 33 goals and added 28 assists in 67 regular season games with the Knights last season.

He will join fellow first-round pick Max Domi on the Knights, after he was assigned to the OHL by the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday.
