Nathan Horton’s got his mind on hockey For the first time since having his season ended last Jan. 22 on a blindside hit from the Flyers’ Tom Sestito, Horton skated with his teammates yesterday during a captain’s practice at Ristuccia Arena.
“I feel great,” said Horton, who suffered his second concussion in less than a year on the hit. “I’ve had a lot of time to work out and get back to normal. Obviously, it’s been tough for everybody this year. It’s not the way anyone wanted this year to be, but I feel great. Better than I have in a long time.” http://bostonherald.com/sports
Bobby Orr: No team better than Bruins “Give me a team that’s better than Boston,” 4 told the Track. “But it’s going to come down to which team is willing to pay the price to be a champion. It’s a grind … But on paper, how many teams are better than the Bruins?” http://bostonherald.com/sports
Aaron Johnson likes new team WILMINGTON — As a bit of a hockey nomad, Aaron Johnson is used to fitting into new situations. The Bruins defenseman, who signed a two-way deal last summer, is now on his sixth NHL team. But he must have enjoyed easier beginnings than this one.
Bruins forward Nathan Horton says he is healthy, ready to play WILMINGTON — Nathan Horton hasn’t played in an NHL game since Jan. 22, 2012. Like all his union brothers, Horton has missed nearly three months of healthy direct deposits ($4 million annual salary) because of the lockout. Horton is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.
One of my biggest hopes and concerns was/ is Horty comes out playing without hesitation and to his strengths. Huge question mark, let`s hope he answers it nice and early on the ice, saying it to the media is one thing....
