from Kirk Luedeke of the Hockey Journal,
From the smile on Nathan Horton’s face, you might think he knows something that everyone else doesn’t.
Or perhaps his happiness is due to the fact that after toiling in relative obscurity in the hockey backwater of Sunrise, Fla., he’s now with an Original Six franchise in the Boston Bruins with a legitimate shot at professional redemption.
Seven years after being hailed as the savior of the sagging Florida Panthers franchise, Horton has a chance to live up to the crushing expectations that came with being the third overall selection in the very deep 2003 NHL draft class.
“It’s been awesome; I couldn’t have pictured it being any better,” he said after finishing up the second training camp session at TD Garden Sunday. “It’s been great on the ice out there, and I’m just trying to do the best I can in the short time I’ve been here.”
