BOSTON (CBS) – Nathan Horton is moving on from the Boston Bruins, and heading to Columbus.

Horton signed a seven-year, $37.1 million deal with the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday, according to TSN.

Horton, 28, will reportedly make $30 million over the first five years of the deal, with a annual average value at $5.3 million.

After three seasons in Boston, in which the Bruins went to two Stanley Cup Finals and won one, Horton’s agent told the team this offseason he would not be returning.
