Boston Bruins forward Nathan Horton will miss the remainder of the 2011-12 season because of recurring post-concussion symptoms, the team announced.

"We've made the determination to shut him down for the remainder of the playoffs," Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said. "We felt that it wasn't in the long-term interest of Nathan to be having this specter hanging over him of trying to come back during this playoff season. He made one step forward and two steps back. We just made the determination upon consultation with our doctors, with Nathan, that it would be prudent to shut him down. He'll continue to rehab for next year."
