Nathan Horton to skate today

Nathan Horton is scheduled to skate today, according to Claude Julien. It will be Horton’s first time on the ice since suffering a concussion on Jan. 22. Horton resumed off-ice workouts on Friday.

Given the nature of concussions, there is no timetable to Horton’s recovery. Assuming Horton’s solo skates go well, he will then progress to non-contact practice. After that, Horton will take contact, then await clearance for game action.

Horton will miss his fifth straight game today.
