BOSTON — Bruins head coach Claude Julien said after practice today at the TD Garden that forward Nathan Horton suffered post-concussion-like symptoms after attempting to skate and has since ceased skating.
Horton was injured on a Tom Sestito hit in Philadelphia Jan. 22.
Horton reportedly skated on his own last Sunday while the Bruins were on the road. While the Bruins have classified the current concussion as “mild” it comes seven months after a more severe one he suffered on an Aaron Rome hit in the Stanley Cup Final.
“He’s back to Square 1, and we’re giving him some time here,” said Julien.
