Horton out again with concussion TheFourthPeriod.com
Bruins forward Nathan Horton is still suffering from a mild concussion he sustained on Jan. 22 against the Philadelphia Flyers, ESPN Boston reports.
According to Bruins head coach Claude Julien, the 26-year-old, who suffered the injury following a late hit by the Flyers' Tom Sestito, won't be allowed to do any physical activity for at least another three or four days.
"He is getting better," Julien told ESPN. "But for at least three days we won't be doing anything with him. He's still at the point where he hasn't ridden the bike yet, but he is getting better. When you have a concussion it's about headaches and everything else, and everything is going in the right direction right now."
The winger suffered a severe concussion in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals last year and missed the rest of the series.
He then struggled in the first dozen games of the season and acknowledged that effects of the concussion may have been partly responsible for his slow start.
In 46 games with the Bruins this season, Horton has collected 17 goals and 15 assists for 32 points.
