NATHAN HORTON RUMORS

Examining the innovative and surprising Nathan Horton – David Clarkson trade

In one of the most innovative and surprising trades in recent memory, Nathan Horton of the Columbus Blue Jackets was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs for David Clarkson. Full stop. No salary retained. Nothing else was added to this deal to sweeten the pot for either side. For as simple as it was presented on the surface, this deal was anything but. Clarkson (all situations): 2007...

Leafs trade David Clarkson to Blue Jackets For Nathan Horton

The Toronto Maple Leafs found a way to trade the contract of underachieving forward David Clarkson, something very few people thought would be possible. Clarkson signed a seven-year, $36.7 million contract with the Leafs before the 2013-14 season and failed to meet expectations with just 15 goals in 118 career games with the Original Six club. On Thursday, the Leafs traded him...

Nathan Horton showing signs of improvement, future still a mystery

It’s been a long time since we’ve had some positive news about Nathan Horton. Back in October, we discussed how Horton’s degenerative back condition was far worse than previously thought and that the forward’s career was in jeopardy. Since the time of that report, information on Horton has been scarce if not nonexistent. Most hockey fans assumed the worst. We finally have...

Why Nathan Horton Should Retire

A few months back I caught flack from readers and non readers alike about an article I wrote about Nathan Horton. I stated in the article that in his injury ridden season we didn’t have much more to be excited about as his production was in line with previous seasons. While this presumption upset some, others were quick to accept the fate of an oft injured winger who brought other...

Ex-Bruin Nathan Horton Hoping For ‘Miracle’ As Career Hangs In Balance

Nathan Horton might never play in the NHL again. It’s a stunning reality for the Columbus Blue Jackets winger. Horton hasn’t played since April because of a degenerative back injury he first suffered while rehabbing from a shoulder injury. He could undergo surgery to relieve the agonizing pain he constantly experiences, but the procedure would end the 29-year-old’s career....

Report: Nathan Horton’s injury is more serious than we all thought

Nathan Horton’s back injury is a perplexing one. Information regarding his degenerative back condition has been fairly limited and a predicted recovery time has been nonexistent. Some have suggested Horton will be on the shelf for a considerable amount of time while others paint a far worse picture. One report suggests that Horton’s career may be in jeopardy. As seen on Sportsnet...

Unpopular Opinion: Don’t Expect Much More from Nathan Horton

The much ballyhooed signing of Nathan Horton is a proud moment among new fans and old. A player who has a Stanley Cup on his resume decided to come to the capital city to play hockey for the Blue Jackets. I myself was excited at the time of the signing, I believed wholeheartedly that Horton brought a sense of legitimacy to the team that hadn’t been seen since James Wisniewski joined...

2013-14 Season Review: Nathan Horton

#480336643 / gettyimages.com With possibly the biggest splash in the free agency market last year after a late season playoff push that saw the Jackets miss the playoffs by a measly point, Blue Jacket’s GM Jarmo Kekalainen pulled the trigger on a star forward that so many people thought the club would need to become a consistent playoff team; and his name was Nathan Horton. Horton...

Nathan Horton could make NHL history by not playing vs. Stars

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Nathan Horton is rumored to not be playing on Wednesday against the Dallas Stars, which has him in line to set an NHL record that will surely never be broken. Wednesday’s Blue Jackets-Stars game is out of the ordinary. It was the game that was postponed following Rich Peverley’s health scare. The NHL announced that the two teams will start over and...

On the road to returning, Horton hoping to contribute

Since signing his free-agent contract with Columbus on July 5, 2013, the saga of Nathan Horton's return to the ice has been well-chronicled. From undergoing offseason shoulder surgery last July to his debut in union blue on Jan. 2, 2014 and his subsequent shutdown because of said injury a few weeks ago, he knows he can do better, on the ice and health-wise. "It's been hurting me...
