Reports: Horton ready to move on from Bruins
Forward Nathan Horton, who becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 5, reportedly has told the Boston Bruins he wants a new beginning with another team.

Forward Nathan Horton, who becomes an unrestricted free agent July 5, reportedly has told the Boston Bruins he wants a new beginning with another team.

Horton's agent, Paul Krepelka, has told multiple media members Horton does not plan to re-sign with the Bruins.

"Nathan has told Boston he wants to move on," TSN's Bob McKenzie said via his Twitter account, quoting Krepelka. "It's not a financial issue, just a decision to move on."

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli has said he wants to re-sign Horton, who needs surgery to repair a dislocated shoulder that popped out in the first game of the Stanley Cup Final against the Chicago Blackhawks. He played the final five games of the series with a brace on the shoulder.

Horton, 28, had 13 goals and 22 points for the Bruins in 2012-13, then scored seven goals and had 19 points in 22 Stanley Cup Playoff games. He is coming off a six-year, $24 million contract he signed in 2007 with the Florida Panthers, who traded him to Boston in 2010.

Quote of the Day

You've got to focus on playing good hockey. When we do that we give ourselves a chance to win games. Win games and then maybe we''ll have a chance at the end. You can't worry about something like (the division title) when we're not playing our best hockey down the stretch. We'll figure things out together the way we always do and get back on the right page.
