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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
