Florida sends Horton, Campbell to the Bruins

The Florida Panthers have traded away forwards Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell for defensemen Dennis Wideman, their original first round draft pick (settle down B’s fans, not the one you acquired from Toronto) and another draft pick down the road, according to TSN.

Horton was drafted by Florida in 2003, and has been at the top of the Panther’s leader board for just about every season since. He has scored 142 goals with an additional 153 assists in his career.

Campbell, son of Disciplinary Commissioner Colin Campbell,was drafted the same year as Horton, and though not as notable on the scoring end, brings that physical presence to the Bruins. He finished off  this past season with 158 hits, the most on the team.

Wideman began was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in 2002 but began his NHL career with the St. Louis Blues and just finished off his fourth season with the Bruins. His 11 points in this past season’s playoffs were the most to ever be recorded by a defenseman in a single post season since Ray Bourque (25 points) in 1991.
