Nathan Horton (born May 29, 1985) is a Canadian professional ice hockey winger who currently plays for the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League (NHL). During his career, Horton has also played for the Florida Panthers, the Thorold Blackhawks of the Golden Horseshoe Junior Hockey League (GHJHL), the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) and the San Antonio Rampage of the American Hockey League (AHL).

During his only season with Thorold he played in 41 games, scoring 16 goals and 31 assists. With Oshawa he scored 64 goals and recorded 71 assists for his career. Following his time with Oshawa, Horton was drafted by the Florida Panthers and spent his first professional season playing for the team. However, during what would be his second season, the NHL cancelled the season which caused Horton to find another team to play for. Instead of going to Europe as many other NHL players had, he joined the Panthers' AHL affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage. In an injury shortened season, Horton played in 21 games for the Rampage scoring 5 goals and recording 4 assists.

Playing careerEdit

Minor HockeyEdit

Horton grew up in Dunnville, Ontario playing much of his minor hockey with the Welland Tigers of the OMHA South Central AAA League before graduating to the Thorold Blackhawks Jr.B. club of the OHA's Golden Horseshoe League. For much of his career with Welland, Horton played up on the "'84" Tigers team with future NHL'ers Dan Girardi, Daniel Paille (current Bruins teammate) and Andre Deveaux.

Junior careerEdit

Horton first entered junior hockey as a player for the Thorold Blackhawks. In one season with Thorold he scored 16 goals and registered 31 assists in 41 games.[1] Prior to the 2001 OHL Draft, a 16–year old Horton stated that if he was drafted first overall by the Mississauga Ice Dogs, he would not report to the team.[2] He was instead selected second overall in the draft by the Oshawa Generals.[3] As a rookie in the OHL, Horton totaled 31 goals and 36 assists in 64 games for the Generals.[4]

To begin the 2002–03 season, Horton missed 13 games out of 22 but still ended up scoring 9 goals with 18 points during that span.[5] Horton was named to the Canadian national junior team's selection camp in December but was one of the first cuts.[6] He ended his final season in Oshawa with 33 goals and 35 assists in 54 games.[4]

2003 NHL Entry DraftEdit

In January 2002, Horton, along with Patrick O'Sullivan and Kevin Klein, was regarded as a top prospect from the OHL for the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.[7] Eleven months later in December, Horton was called, "an almost sure-fire top five pick" by USA Today.[8] Midway through the 2002–03 season, Horton was regarded as a top-five North American prospect by the NHL Central Scouting Bureau.[9] Scouts likened Horton, who considered him a "power forward", to John LeClair who was considered to be one of the best power forwards in the NHL. However, Horton stated that he saw himself to be more like Jeremy Roenick or Peter Forsberg, both of whom were faster than LeClair.[10]

The Florida Panthers, who originally held the first overall pick but traded it to the Pittsburgh Penguins, selected Horton with the third overall pick. Goaltender Marc-André Fleury (Pittsburgh) and centre Eric Staal (Carolina) were selected before him.[11]

Florida PanthersEdit

Horton signed with the Panthers on October 6, 2003.[12] After his signing, Panthers coach Mike Keenan compared Horton to future New York Rangers Hall of Famer Mark Messier.[13]

Against the Minnesota Wild on October 24, Horton recorded his first career point with an assist on an Ivan Novoseltsev goal.[14] Horton recorded his first career goal on November 1 against the San Jose Sharks.[15] In the next game for the Panthers against the Los Angeles Kings, Horton scored his second goal in as many games.[16] On January 9, 2004, Horton became the first rookie in NHL history to record a goal on a penalty shot, scoring against Philadelphia Flyers goalie Jeff Hackett.[17] Three seasons later, on October 22, 2006, Penguins rookie Jordan Staal matched the feat and surpassed Horton as the youngest player to score; Staal was 183 days younger than Horton was when he scored.[18] Four days after his penalty shot goal, Horton suffered a torn rotator cuff and labrum which would potentially end his season.[19][20] At the time, he was third on the Panthers with 10 goals.[21] Following an examination by surgeon Tony Miniaci, Horton was told that he could rehabilitate naturally and did not require surgery on his shoulder.[22] He returned to the Panthers in early March and scored in one of his first games back against the Tampa Bay Lightning.[23] However, his shoulder troubles continued and it was determined that surgery was required.[22] Horton ended his rookie campaign with 14 goals and 8 assists in 55 games.[4]

The 2004–05 NHL season ended up being locked out which forced Horton and other players to sign with other teams. Horton eventually signed with the Panthers' AHL affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage[24] after a controversy ensued as to whether junior hockey eligible players such as Horton were obligated to return to their junior teams.[25] Despite not signing with the Rampage until October 29, Horton still participated in their training camp.[26] Seven minutes into his second AHL game, Horton scored his first goal of the season.[27] He recorded his first career AHL assist on a Gregory Campbell goal.[28] On December 3, 2004, against the Houston Aeros, Horton scored both of the Rampage's goals to help the team win in overtime.[29]

For the second straight season, the Panthers did not allow Horton to play for the Canadian national junior team. He and Houston Aeros defenceman Brent Burns were the only two players not allowed to play for the team.[30] Days before the announcement that Horton would not play for Team Canada, he suffered another shoulder injury which allegedly played into the Panthers' decision.[31] Horton suffered the shoulder injury in a fight in December and missed 14 games. He was informed he would again have to undergo surgery.[32] In 21 games for San Antonio, Horton scored 5 goals and recorded 4 assists.[4]

Entering the 2005–06 season, Horton stated in response to a question about his shoulders, "I feel better. I feel stronger, bigger."[33] In the season opener against the Atlanta Thrashers, Horton scored the first goal for the Panthers.[34] Through the first games of the season, Horton was tied for the team lead in goals.[35] On November 8, 2005, Horton was placed on injured reserve because of a knee injury.[36] He was activated on December 1[37] and scored in his first game back against the Washington Capitals to help the Panthers win 3–2.[38] Horton added 2 goals against the Chicago Blackhawks in the Panthers' next game to bring his season total to 10 in 17 games.[39] Against the Nashville Predators on December 13, Horton recorded his first career hat trick and stated after the game that, "It's a pretty nice feeling. I felt like there was no one on me. I just tried to get it to the net and it went in every time."[40] Despite missing 10 games to injury, Horton was tied with teammate Olli Jokinen for the team lead in goals with 16 after 38 games.[41] Against Washington on January 9, Horton and Joe Nieuwendyk scored a goal in the shootout to help the Panthers win 4–3.[42] Two days after his shootout goal, Horton was promoted to the Panthers' first line.[43] Despite his promotion to the first line, Horton's name was mentioned in a potential trade with the Vancouver Canucks;[44] however, nothing materialized. In a 6–2 win over the Ottawa Senators, Horton scored 2 goals including one on a rebound, after which he said, "It just popped right out to me. It was a long time coming for goals for me. I got lucky tonight and hopefully they keep going in."[45] In March, Horton began playing in penalty kill situations for the first time in his career.[46] Also against the Lightning, Horton scored the Panthers' only goal with his 27th goal of the season.[47] Horton completed the season playing 71 games, scoring 28 goals and adding 19 assists.[4]

Following the 2005–06 season, Horton's rookie contract expired. He was re-signed by Florida on July 12, 2006, to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.[48] Against the Boston Bruins, Horton scored his first goal of the season to help the Panthers win 8–3.[49] He scored his third goal of the season on October 18 in a 5–2 loss against the Washington Capitals, who the Panthers had not lost to in regulation since the 2004–05 season.[50] After Horton was called for a second-period penalty against Atlanta, coach Jacques Martin demoted Horton to the fourth line in an attempt to send a message to Horton.[51] Before long, however, Horton was again promoted to the first line, with Finnish players Olli Jokinen and Ville Peltonen. They gave Horton the name "Nathan Hortonen" in an attempt to make his name Finnish.[52] Against the Montreal Canadiens on November 16, Horton assisted on all goals that Jokinen recorded.[53] Against Tampa Bay on February 17, Horton scored the game winning goal for Florida, 29 seconds into overtime.

For the second straight season, Horton's name was brought up in trade offers; however Canadian sports writer, Bruce Garrioch called it "doubtful" that Horton would be traded[54] despite Horton being unhappy playing in Florida.[55] Against Tampa Bay on March 28, Horton scored two goals, which brought his season total for goals against the Lightning up to 8.[56] In the Panthers' next game against the Lightning, Horton had 1 goal which made it 9 goals and 3 assists for him against Tampa Bay in the 2006–07 season. The goal also gave Horton his career-high 31st goal on the season.[57] He ended the season with 31 goals and 31 assists in 82 games.[4]

Horton re-signed with the Panthers on June 21, 2007, to a six-year, US$24 million contract.[58] despite previous rumours he would not.[59] Through seven games for the Panthers to open the 2007–08 NHL season, Horton recorded 3 goals and 3 assists, during which he had a four-game point streak.[60] Horton scored the only goal for the Panthers in a 2–1 loss against the Carolina Hurricanes on November 18.[61] Against the Washington Capitals on November 28, Horton along with teammates Olli Jokinen, Kamil Kreps and Stephen Weiss scored shootout goals to help Florida win the game.[62] For the first time since March 2007, Horton scored 2 goals in a game to help the Panthers win over the Atlanta Thrashers on December 28.[63] Horton and linemate David Booth combined for three goals against the New York Islanders, of which Horton scored two.[64] In the Panthers' 5–3 win over the Ottawa Senators on January 22, 2008, Horton recorded 4 assists,[65] which was a career–high.[66] Horton scored against Vancouver Canucks goalie and former Panther Roberto Luongo in a shootout to help the Panthers win 4–3, giving them their first win over Vancouver since 1999.[67] Horton scored a goal against the Washington Capitals to help Florida win 4–2 in the game after Richard Zednik suffered a neck injury in which he had his external carotid artery cut by a skate.[68] Twenty-two seconds into overtime against the Boston Bruins on March 5, Horton scored to give the Panthers a 1–0 victory.[69] Four days later on March 9, Horton scored again in overtime with 23 seconds left, causing the Miami Herald to nickname him the "King of Overtime".[70] On April 5, Horton scored his 100th career goal.[71]

Prior to the start of the 2008–09 NHL season, Panthers head coach Peter DeBoer, who first saw Horton play at seven years old, said about his hopes for Horton, "If I'm looking for guys to do more, he wouldn't be at the top of the list. If he can give us 30-plus, I'd be happy with Nathan. There's a group of guys underneath him that I think can make a lot bigger jumps than I need out of Nathan Horton goal-wise."[72] Horton was also moved from his position of right wing to centre before the season. After playing a few games at centre, Horton said, "It's not as easy as wing. You can play wing and all you have to concentrate on is getting the puck and shooting it. At center, you have more responsibilities."[73] Against the Nashville Predators on November 1, Horton played in his 300th career game, but failed to record a point.[74] On November 26, Horton suffered a deep cut in his leg after it was stepped on by a skate. At the time of the injury, Horton had 6 goals and 7 assists.[75] In early December, the Ottawa Sun reported that the Panthers might have been looking to trade Horton after he was reportedly unhappy playing for the team.[76] Horton returned to the lineup on December 17 after missing eight games. After the game, Horton commented, "I'm excited to play. It's kind of a different Panthers team than the past. It's really changed in a matter of a month. Things are going good now, and everybody's really buying into what Pete has been telling us all year."[77] On January 17, Horton recorded 3 assists to help the Panthers defeat Tampa Bay, 4–3.[78] For the second time during the season, Horton's name came up in trade rumours, this time with the Chicago Blackhawks.[79] In early March, days after the trade deadline, Horton suffered a finger injury that forced him to have surgery.[80] He returned to the lineup on March 23, recording an assist in a Panthers loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.[81] Horton ended the season with 22 goals and 23 assists in 67 games.[4]

Boston BruinsEdit

Horton was traded to the Boston Bruins on June 22, 2010 along with Gregory Campbell for Dennis Wideman, the Bruins first round pick (15th overall) in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, and third round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.[82] He got off to a great start in his first season in Boston, with seven goals and six assists, including a six game point streak, in the first 12 games of the season. He finished second on the team in goals and fourth in assists.

During the first round of the 2011 NHL Playoffs, Horton scored a game-winning overtime goal for the Bruins in both games five and seven to help the Bruins win the series over the Montreal Canadiens.[83] A third period goal by Horton against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the only goal of game 7, later sent the Bruins to the Stanley Cup Finals.[84]

In game three of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals, Horton was hit with late check to the head by Vancouver Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome. Rome received a five-minute major for interference and a game misconduct. Horton seemed concussed and unresponsive as he was carried out on a stretcher and put into an ambulance. He was moving all his extremities in the ambulance.[85] He was later diagnosed with a severe concussion and missed the remainder of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals. Rome was suspended for 4 games following the hit.[86]The NHL stated that if the series were to be completed in less than seven games, then any remaining games on the suspension would be served at the start of the following season. Although Horton missed the remainder of the finals, the Bruins went on to win the series in game seven, and he hoisted the Stanley Cup in Vancouver on June 15.

Personal lifeEdit

Horton married Canadian model and fellow Welland native Tammy Plante, the great-niece of NHL goaltending great Jacques Plante, on July 7, 2007.[87] Together they have one son named Dylan Jaxon Horton.
