We’ve been holding off on doing something like this with Nathan Horton for a few reason:
1) We didn’t think it’d last this long.
2) We kinda like Horton. We’re seeing the effort but no follow through. Guy must’ve kicked a puppy or something to get this streak of luck.
But he’s gone 21 days without a goal and our fantasy hockey teams have suffered for it. He has 1 goal and 2 assists in January (last goal vs. Toronto). Therefore — and with the help from our good friend Brian Fantana — we’re introducing Horton Watch 2011.
Stay tuned between periods in our game recaps to get Fantana’s take on Horton’s goalless streak.
