Maple Leafs' Nathan Horton: Fails medical
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horton (back) failed his physical for the Leafs on Thursday, as expected, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

Horton's deal -- $5.3 million annually through 2019-20 -- can now be designated for long-term injured reserve, which will provide the Leafs with much-needed cap relief. This figures to be an annual process for the 32-year-old until his contract runs out, at which point he will officially retire.

Maple Leafs' Nathan Horton: Remains on long-term injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horton (back) remains on the Leafs' payroll, but his $5.3 million salary (through 2019-2020) does not count against the team's salary cap.

Rich teams can afford to absorb big salaries like Horton's, as he remains trapped on the league's long-term injured reserve list. Horton is struggling with a degenerative spine issue that has had him out of action since 2014. He will likely never return to the game as a player.

Maple Leafs' Nathan Horton: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Horton (back) has been placed on injured reserve by the Maple Leafs, according to the NHL Media site.

Horton failed his physical and wasn't a member of the team's training camp roster, so his placement on injured reserve isn't overly surprising. The winger tallied 19 points (five goals, four assists) as a member of Columbus in 2013, but hasn't played in the NHL since then and is unlikely to play with the Leafs when he's ready to return.
