Bruins’ Trade for Nathan Horton, Gregory Campbell Laid Foundation for 2011 Championship Run

Nathan Horton Gregory Campbell

Sunday’s Captain Morgan Legendary Moment laid the foundation for the Bruins’ historic Stanley Cup run of 2011.

Back in June of 2010, the B’s sent struggling defenseman Dennis Wideman and a pair of draft picks to the Panthers in exchange for forwards Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell. Only third-round pick Kyle Rau is still in the Florida system — though he has not suited up for the pro club — while Horton and Campbell have both played key roles on a Bruins team that is perennially among the best in the NHL.
