Rick Nash was the New York Rangers' only goal scorer in a 5-1 loss to the visiting Montreal Canadiens Wednesday night.

Rick Nash carried the Rangers with a hat trick Saturday night in their 5-4 overtime win against the Panthers.

Nash began the night with an underwhelming two goals and he finishes the night with a slightly more respectable five. His power-play goal was the game-winner 2:01 into overtime. Nash also had 10 shots on goal as he bullied his way to the net and reminded everyone of his world-class ability. Nash has 13 points this season. Mats Zuccarello (goal, two assists) and Viktor Stalberg picked up the other goals.

Rick Nash scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-0 win over Carolina.

He missed his team's last two games because of a back injury and it looks like the rest did him some good. Jesper Fast and Nash scored just 11 seconds apart in the first period to give New York a 2-0 lead. Nash also picked up the only assist on Ryan McDonagh's third period goal. Hopefully this positive momentum can get Nash out of his early-season scoring funk. The 31-year-old has just two goals and eight points in 13 games this season.

Rick Nash is ready to return to the lineup on Tuesday night after missing two games with a sore back.

He took part in Monday's practice without limitations and told coach Alain Vigneault that he was ready to play. Nash has one goal and five assists in 12 games this campaign. Get him back in your lineup.
Nov 9 - 1:59 PM

Rick Nash (back) is questionable for Saturday's game.

Nash injured his back in practice on Thursday and sat out Friday's game against the Avalanche. He has a goal and six points in 12 games thus far this season and with that uneven start, it's not like you missed him in your fantasy lineup Friday.
Nov 7 - 8:07 AM

Rick Nash will indeed sit out Friday's tilt with the Avalanche on Friday night.

Rick Nash sustained a back injury during Thursday's practice. Said Coach Vigneault, "he twisted his back a little bit during the shooting drills so he’s day to day." Emerson Etem will take his place, and will likely play on the fourth line. Nash has just a goal and six points in 12 games thus far, while Etem has just a helper in three.

Rick Nash sustained a back injury during Thursday's practice.

"He twisted his back a little bit during the shooting drills so he’s day to day," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. "I don’t know about tomorrow. These things can turn around quickly or sometimes they might go for a couple of days." In other words, we should regard Nash as questionable for Friday's game. He's off to a slow start with a goal and six points in 12 contests.
Nov 5 - 5:56 PM

Rick Nash hasn't scored a goal in the Rangers' first five games.

This is the longest goal scoring drought Nash has endured at the start of a season, which says more about Nash's history of success than it does his current struggles. "I feel good, I just can’t hit the back of the net," Nash said. He has recorded 19 shots on goal so far this season, including four on Thursday.
Oct 16 - 9:21 AM

Rick Nash registered an assist in a 4-1 loss to Winnipeg.

Nash has been limited to that one point in four games this season. That's in stark contrast to 2014-15 when he opened the season with a four-game goal scoring streak. We wouldn't read too much into Nash's sluggish start though as there's obviously more than enough time for him to turn things around.
Oct 14 - 10:28 AM

Though there had been growing speculation that the New York Rangers may trade leading scorer Rick Nash, he is expected to remain a Ranger.

Nash's No-Trade Clause expired today, and when you combine that with his underwhelming playoff performance with his $7.8M cap hit the next three seasons, it's easy to see why he may have been on the block. Such as it is, the Rangers' leading scorer isn't expected to be moved any time soon.
Jul 1 - 7:30 PM

There is growing speculation that the New York Rangers may seek to trade leading scorer Rick Nash this off-season.

With the cap expected to rise to only about just north of $71M, and the Rangers being $9.5M from the cap ceiling, they may view Nash's $7.9M cap hit the next three seasons too burdensome. Forwards Derek Stepan, Carl Hagelin, JT Miller, and Jesper Fast are all RFA's come July 1st, and with Nash's mere eight goals and 24 points over the past two postseasons, the 30 year old may be ripe for being dealt. His full No-Movement Clause becomes a Modified Trade Clause come July 1st, giving the Rangers 10-12 teams to work with. Some may include Washington, Anaheim, Edmonton, and Florida as they each have at least $16.7M in cap space.

Rick Nash was not at all happy about being ousted from the playoffs on Friday.

The forward ended the post-season with five goals and 14 points in 19 games and was shutout along with his teammates in a 2-0 loss in Game 7 to the Lightning. "I'm pretty upset," Nash said. In a career, you don't get too many opportunities to play on a team like this and get that opportunity to win a championship. It's pretty frustrating right now."
May 31 - 7:33 AM

Rick Nash scored a goal and added three assists in the Rangers' 7-3 demolition of the Lightning in Game 6 on Tuesday.

Nash was also a plus-4 on the night. After getting shut out in Game 5, the Rangers top players showed up big time in an elimination situation. Nash scored his goal on a power-play during New York's crazy five goal third period. The goal was his fifth of the playoffs and after struggling for most part, Nash has really caught fire at the right time. He has 7 points (3G,4A) in three games for a total of 18 points in the entire postseason.

The New York Rangers were shut out by a score of 2-0 in Sunday's Game 5 tilt against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

After lighting up the scoreboard in back-to-back games, the Rangers offense was shut down by Ben Bishop and his teammates. New York is now on the brink of elimination with the series heading back to Tampa Bay for Game 6. Rick Nash led all Rangers skaters with five shots on goal.
