Forward Nathan Horton will not be back with the Boston Bruins next season.

Horton has decided to test the free agent market when his contract expires on July 5.

"Nathan has told the Bruins he wants to explore free agency. It's not a financial issue, just a decision to move on," Horton's agent Paul Krepelka told TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie.

Last season, Horton scored 13 goals and added nine assists for 22 points in 43 games.

In the playoffs, he had 19 points in 22 games as the Bruins fell just short of winning the Stanley Cup.
