Nathan Horton signs seven-year deal with Columbus


Nathan Horton closed the book on the Boston Bruins Friday afternoon when he agreed to a seven-year, $37.1 million contact to play for the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The deal gives Horton pretty much exactly what he wanted this offseason – to sign a big money, long-term contract in a quiet hockey market.

Horton likely cashed in big time on the fact that he gained a reputation for being a clutch postseason performer during his three seasons in Boston, one of which culminated in a Stanley Cup. That’s pretty ironic considering Columbus has never won a playoff series in franchise history.
