Aaron Rome Apologizes Via Canucks GM For Nathan Horton Hit

While neither the Canucks Aaron Rome nor the Bruins' Nathan Horton will play in the remaining games of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals, Rome did issue an apology for his hit on Horton. Rome asked his general manager, Mike Gillis, to let the Bruins and their general manager, Peter Chiarelli, know that "he was very sorry for the hit," reports the Bruins' official Twitter feed.

Rome delivered a nasty elbow to Horton during Game 3 on Monday night, which resulted in a concussion for the Bruins' winger. Rome was suspended for four games, the remainder of the series, and Horton is out for at least that long as well. But as teammate Marc Savard could tell Horton, concussions are a serious matter.
