Riley Nash assisted on both Carolina goals Saturday in a 3-2 overtime loss to Columbus.
Nash had a power play assist on Andrei Loktionov's goal and then set up Jeff Skinner in the third stanza. The 24-year-old now has nine goals and 21 points in 65 games so his fantasy value is negligible at best in deep pools. Mar 30 - 3:17 AM

Riley Nash is on a three-game point streak.

That's a first for the 24-year-old forward. Nash now has 15 points in 48 games in 2013-14. We wouldn't count on him to have any value in standard leagues after the break.

Riley Nash (lower body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

The move is retroactive Dec. 31, so Nash can be activated as soon as he's healthy. He has four goals and 10 points in 36 games this season. Consider him day-to-day.

Riley Nash had a goal and an assist on Friday in the Hurricanes 5-3 win over San Jose.

Nash now has three goals and seven points this season and was plus-one in only 8:36 minutes of ice time. He doesn't play enough to warrant any fantasy value.

Riley Nash practiced on a line with Jeff Skinner and Elias Lindholm on Tuesday.

"He's versatile. He can go center or right wing," Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller said. "They had some chemistry before, too, those three." Nash has just three points in 21 games this season, but he does have more upside than those numbers imply. He's worth keeping an eye on.

Riley Nash potted his first goal of the season in the Hurricanes 5-3 loss to Phoenix Sunday.

It was the 24-year-old's first point of the season as well. He is an impressive plus-four in the early going but we cannot recommend him in fantasy hockey at this time.

Riley Nash sustained a cut in his armpit on Friday and will be kept out of action for at least the next few days.

This is not what Nash, who is competing for the fourth-line center job, needs. Even if he recovers to make an impact and win the job, Nash has no fantasy value.

The Carolina Hurricanes extended qualifying offers to forwards Riley Nash, Jared Staal, Zach Boychuk and Zac Dalpe and defenseman Michal Jordan.

Nash had four goals and nine points in 32 games with the Hurricanes while Staal played two games at the NHL level toward the end of the season. Boychuk bounced around the NHL via waivers for much of the season. Dalpe played 10 games with the NHL club and Jordan skated in five. None of the players listed have any fantasy value entering next season.
