From Douglas Flynn at NESN:
Horton has been practicing with the club throughout camp, but has not played in a game since suffering a severe concussion on a late hit by Vancouver’s Aaron Rome in Game 3 of the Cup Final on June 6. Horton had also suffered a separated shoulder earlier in the playoffs that he played through.
On Friday, Horton insisted he hasn’t suffered any setbacks with either injury, and the team is just proceeding cautiously by keeping him out of games early in camp.
“I feel good,” Horton said. “It’s nice to try to get back into things. I haven’t had any setbacks. I feel fine. I look forward to feeling better and getting better on the ice.
“Obviously I want to get back [playing],” Horton added. “I’m here, I want to play. But it’s nice to ease my way back into it and get back into things. [It] gives me a chance to feel good and come in and hopefully feel better.”
