Boston Bruins right wing Nathan Horton, out since January with a concussion, has been cleared for contact and should be healthy by the start of training camp, the team announced Tuesday.
"Horton has been cleared for contact and our medical staff says he'll be ready to go when we start playing," Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli told reporters.
Horton had 17 goals and 15 assists in 46 games last season, but he didn't play after taking a hit from the Flyers' Tom Sestito on Jan. 22. It resulted in Horton's second concussion in six months.
Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid, who played just once after suffering a concussion March 29, also has been cleared for contact.
