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

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
