"Nathan is healthy and ready for the season to start," Horton's agent Paul Krepelka told ESPN.com's James Murphy. "Has been for a while now. He's ready to go and has been ready to go."
This is encouraging news for the Bruins and Bruins fans. Horton has been dealing with concussion problems since he took a hard hit from Aaron Rome in Game 3 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals. Horton did not return to the series after that hit but was in the Opening Night lineup for the 2011-2012 season. But his season was cut short when he suffered another concussion in Philadelphia. At the time he went down, Horton had scored 17 goals and 6 assists in 46 games.Tags: Boston, Boston Bruins, Hockey, Nathan Horton, NHL
