Nathan Horton has stopped skating because of post-concussion syndrome. According to Claude Julien, Horton’s symptoms, which have included headaches, returned once he resumed solo skates.
“He’s been pulled back,” Julien said. “He’s got some symptoms. So we’ve pulled him back. It’s hard for me to come out every day with a step forward, step backward. He’s back to square one. We’re giving him some time here. Those symptoms, once he got on the ice, came back.”
Horton hasn’t played since Jan. 22, when he suffered a concussion after being hit by Philadelphia’s Tom Sestito. Horton first skated on his own on Sunday.
