If he's having an MRI right away it means that the swelling is very little. If you try to do any kind of diagnostic test when it is swollen all you will get is a big white spot.

True ... I didn't think of the swelling factor... Maybe he hit in where it numbs the leg where you can't walk...then it comes back,,,

I'm going with my original prediction and say he'll be back in 1.5 weeks, aka the playoffs. He's a tough ole farm boy. It'll take more than a knee slam to put this warrior out of commission

A Horton update!

Boston Bruins ‏ @NHLBruins

Nathan Horton skated for about 40 mins at Ristuccia with Tuukka Rask and Strength Coach John Whitesides before the full practice ^BB

Glad he's on skates but he's not coming back until next season.

Your just kidding yourself if you think otherwise.

This. Remember Savard.

That said, don't want to be a buzzkill -- excellent news that he's skating, and I hope he continues to!

Good to hear, but ya i don't think we'll see him until September, which would be the right choice

Excellent news about Horton but do not, repeat, do not, under any circumstances, bring him back for the playoffs. I do not think he was fully recovered from his first concussion, never mind his second. It's not worth the risk, not even close.

I think we'd have to win a couple series for him to be able to come back, at which point if he gets clearance, it'll be his choice, which means he'll play.

I agree with everyone else when it comes to Horty. Shut him down and make sure he is ready for next season. Somebody else will just have to step up and become a playoff hero.

I was thinking more about this on the way in to work this morning, and while I still think it's likely only an MCL sprain/tear (I don't think the ACL is likely involved), I think you are probably correct in that he is done for the year.

The rest and heal period for a serious sprain/tear without surgery is like 6-8 weeks. Even if they make it to the finals I don't think he's back by then, or maybe just back

i am in the minority here.
if he is going 40 min, they are trying to get him back for the PO's.
they wouldnt do it otherwise. unless he just wanted to get the skates wet.

he could go hard on the ice for a good week here with no symptoms and be back soon.

this is no savard. savard was a wreck and looked awful before he came back. horton looks healthy and ready to roll. he's been in the pressbox for a while. savard wouldnt even make it to the pressbox.

LOL at non doctors proclaiming from their chairs to shut Horton down. Giroux had a concussion this year. How is he? If Horton is better, he is better. All your typing wont change that.

Sorry, but coming back in the regular season with time to find your game and coming back for the playoffs are different beasts. Never mind their individual situations.

Awful comparison.

Guys you think Nathan Horton can't find his game on the 4th line in about 3 games? Honestly the garbage in here. Let the doctors and management worry about the decisions they actually have first hand knowledge of. The guy has played hockey his whole life. If he is healthy, nothing is keeping him from the ice. And that next concussion is always looming for Horton. He knows it, he has had months to think about it. He's an adult....

That is really good news

I doubt he will be back this season (even playoffs) but you never know. I like that Nate feels well enough to lace them up.
