Rick Nash is expected to be back in the Rangers' lineup on Friday against Toronto.

Nash has 13 goals and 20 points in 30 games so far, with a 14.8% shooting percentage as well. Tack on his 19 hits and 21 blocks, and you have yourself a prime time fantasy contributor.

Rick Nash (groin) will not make his return on Saturday.

Jan 6 - 1:57 PM

Rick Nash will miss his seventh straight game Wednesday with a groin injury.

The good news is that he could return as early as the weekend. Nash has not played since December 18 and this is the second time this season that he has missed action with a groin injury, although there have been two different injuries to his groin. Nash has 13 goals and 20 points in 30 games and his offense is likely sorely missed on your fantasy squad.
Jan 4 - 8:49 AM

Rick Nash practiced with his mates on Saturday morning, a strong indication that his groin injury is healing up nicely.

Nash hasn't played since Dec. 18th due to the ailment. With 13 goals in 30 games already in the bank, he's on the cusp of catching and passing last season's 15 goals in 60 games last go-round. However he's still day-to-day and will not play Saturday versus Colorado.

Rick Nash (groin) could resume skating later on this week.

It's the second groin injury of the month for Nash, so you have to believe the Rangers will be cautious with him. He's still considered day-to-day at this point. Nash has 13 goals and seven assists in 30 games this season.

Rick Nash (groin) will travel with the Rangers.

Rick Nash's groin injury is to the other side of the groin he injured earlier in December.

The Rangers will likely be more careful in deciding when he returns as they do not want a recurrence of the injury. He will miss Tuesday's game and will need to practice and have the Rangers medical staff happy enough that he is fully recovered before a return can happen. Nash has 13 goals and 20 points this season in 30 games. Keep him reserved for now.
Sun, Dec 25, 2016 08:44:00 AM

Rick Nash (groin) isn't expected to play in the next three games.

Coach Alain Vigneault said: "He won't play these next two games and then we come back from the Christmas break (Dec. 27) it's just a morning skate, so it's safe to safe at this time that he probably won't play the next three games and after that it's day-to-day. We'll see how he reacts to treatment."

Rick Nash scored his 13th of the season Saturday.

The forward returned two games ago from a groin injury and now has scored in both games. Nash has 20 points in 29 games this season and after a tough 2015-16 season in which he had only 15 goals and 36 points in 60 contests, it looks like his game is back.
