Nathan Horton Reportedly Has 'Severe Concussion,' Will Miss Remainder Of Stanley Cup Finals

After suffering a crushing hit during Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the Boston Bruins' Nathan Horton was put on a stretcher and transported to Massachusetts General Hospital. The initial report, fortunately, said Horton was moving all of his extremities. Unfortunately, the morning after, the news isn't so good. 

The Boston Globe's Tony Massarotti reported early Tuesday morning on 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston that Horton suffered a "severe concussion" and will miss the remainder of the Stanley Cup Finals. 

The Vancouver Canucks' Aaron Rome, the player who delivered the hit, is scheduled to meet with the NHL for a disciplinary hearing at 11 a.m. ET.
