He produced eight goals and 25 points in 68 games with the Hurricanes last year. Nash had a great start to the campaign with 15 points in his first 23 contests, but it was never believed to be sustainable. GM Ron Francis hasn't closed the door completely on bringing Nash back, though.

Through 68 games this season, Nash has accumulated eight goals, 25 points, 88 hits, and winning 51% of his 1,058 faceoffs.

Terry meanwhile has not produced, with just nine points in 35 games, neither can be recommended for your fantasy squad this season.

Riley Nash had a goal and an assist in the Hurricanes’ 4-3 overtime loss to the Capitals on Saturday night.

With four goals and six assists, the 25-year-old is well on his way to exceeding his 10-goal, 24-point 2013-14 campaign. That being said, he’s probably a player to monitor for another week or so. Nathan Gerbe and Elias Lindholm netted the other goals. Justin Faulk had two assists.

Riley Nash has taken over as the Carolina Hurricanes top center.

Granted, the injuries to Eric Staal and his brother Jordan have had everything to do with it, but Nash is centering Jiri Tlusty and Alexander Semin. He led the Hurricanes in power play time on ice Friday as well. Nash had only 24 points last season so it's easy to see why the Hurricanes are the only NHL team without a win.
