Why Nathan Horton Should Retire

Nathan Horton’s back injury is ‘career-threatening’

Nathan Horton’s career in Columbus hasn’t been what it was expected to be and now, it may have hit the wall. Sure, they were well aware of his pending shoulder surgery when they signed him to a seven-year, $37.1 million deal in the summer of 2013. They were okay with that.
