Rick Nash scored a goal in the Rangers' 5-3 victory over Edmonton Thursday night.

Rick Nash seems to have a new lease on life with new linemates Jimmy Vesey and Derek Stepan.

The trio were put together in the fifth game of the season and haven't looked back. "Rick knows the game so well. It seems like every time I’m open he puts it on my stick," said Vesey. "With Step, we’re all skilled players and for me, playing with two veteran guys like that, they’re always talking about what we can try, what kind of plays we can make. It’s been great." Nash had a very difficult season last year as he had only 15 goals but a deep bone bruise kept him out of action for six weeks and affected his play the rest of the season. Thus far he has four goals and seven points in nine games with Nash getting a goal and an assist in each of three of his last five games. Grab him if he is available in your pool as he is back.

Rick Nash had a goal and an assist Saturday.

Nash scored into the empty net as earlier he set up Jimmy Vesey on the power play. Nash now has a couple of goals and three points as he was struggling in the early going. A lot of poolies are down on Nash after a 15 goal, 36 point season last year but he did find the back of the net 42 times the previous season so don't necessarily jump to conclusions yet.

The New York Rangers have named Rick Nash as an alternate captain.

Nash is joining Derek Stepan, Dan Girardi, and Marc Staal as one of the players wearing an 'A'. This will be his fifth season with the Rangers and Nash is a veteran of 922 NHL games overall. The more pressing concern though is if Nash can bounce back after being limited to 15 goals and 36 points in 60 games last season.

After a rough 2015-16 campaign, Rick Nash feels he needs to earn his spot with the Rangers during training camp.

"I can’t speak for (others) but I know for me, as I get to the tail-end of my career, and you see these young guys come in with high expectations, you just know you have to prove yourself," Nash said. "Especially after the year I had last year, I’m here at camp to show that I belong on this team. For me I truly feel that way. You look at the numbers and we have so many forwards and you know that there’s going to be big moves that are going to be made. For me, I want to be a Ranger, I want to be in New York, so that’s all I’m worried about." Nash had just 15 goals and 36 points in 60 contests last season. At the age of 32, he's not so old that a big bounce back campaign would be shocking, but it's not a safe bet.

The Rangers are "willing" to trade Rick Nash "under the right circumstances," according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

Well, that’s one way to get the offseason hot stove ignited. Friedman says that "there seems to be a little smoke to this one" and that he thinks the Rangers have been asked about trading Nash, who has a $7.8 million cap hit for the next two seasons. He has a list of 12 teams he'd OK a trade to. Nash had 15 goals and 36 points in 60 games, but he played hurt and New York believes it affected his production. It will be an interesting offseason for the Rangers, and this is just one story line to watch.

Rick Nash finished his postseason with a strong effort in Saturday's Game 5.

Nash collected at least a point in four of the five games, including an opening-minute goal in Game 5. He finished with two goals and four points.

Rick Nash scored in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Nash opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal just 39 seconds into the second period. Unfortunately for the Rangers, that's the only puck they'd be able to get by Pens goalie Matt Murray. Nash has one goal and three points in the first three games of the series. The Rangers are down 2-1 in the series with Game 4 going Thursday night at MSG.
Apr 19 - 10:32 PM

Rick Nash recorded an assist in a 5-2 loss to Pittsburgh in Game 1 Wednesday night.

Nash is coming off of a disappointing regular season where he scored 10 goals and 33 points in 61 contests. The Rangers will likely need significantly more out of him now if they are to have a lengthy playoff run. The fact that Nash got a point on Wednesday is obviously a good start, though a best case scenario for the Rangers would involve Nash getting hot from a goal scoring perspective.

Rick Nash has scored three goals in his last five games.

Nash returned to action 10 games ago and was pointless in five games before the current scoring streak. He has 15 goals and 36 points in 55 games and should be worthy of a high pick in playoff pools if you think the Rangers are going deep into the playoffs.

Rick Nash is fine to play on Wednesday night.

He sat out Tuesday's practice because of some leg soreness, but he took part in the "extras" morning skate on Wednesday. Kevin Hayes or Oscar Lindberg may be scratched because Nash is OK to go.
