Riley Nash, Chris Terry and Brett Bellemore will be healthy scratches in Thursday's game against Arizona.

Nash hasn't been terrible for the Hurricanes this year. He has produced seven goals and 20 points in 50 games this season. None of these three players have any fantasy value going forward.
Feb 5 - 8:58 PM

Riley Nash (undisclosed) was able to play in Tuesday's game.

Nash had to leave Friday's contest due to the ailment, but he didn't end up missing any full games as a result. He has four goals and 15 points in 23 contests this season.

Riley Nash suffered an undisclosed injury late in the third period Friday and did not return.

There were no updates after the game for the Hurricanes leading scorer so consider him day-to-day for now. Nash has four goals and 15 points in 22 games and has been one of the big surprises in the NHL in the first quarter of the 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.

Riley Nash had an assist in Carolina's 3-1 loss to Winnipeg Tuesday night.

Nash has a goal and four points in five games. That's a particularly impressive start when you consider that he only had 24 points in 2013-14. He doesn't have a lot of offensive upside on his own, but he's still worth keeping an eye on as he's gotten a fair amount of ice time on a line with Alexander Semin so far this season.

Riley Nash will skate between Jeff Skinner and Elias Lindholm in Sunday's preseason contest against Columbus.

Coach Bill Peters said that Eric Staal won't suit up in the game, but those were his linemates to open training camp. Staal should be expected to see some action at some point before the regular season begins.

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.

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.
Sun, Feb 9, 2014 09:31:00 AM

Riley Nash scored his seventh goal of the season in Carolina's loss to Winnipeg Tuesday night.

Nash now has 13 points through 46 games for the Hurricanes.

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.
Tue, Jan 7, 2014 10:24:00 AM

Riley Nash (lower body) is expected to miss a week to 10 days.

Nash was hurt during Tuesday's contest. Based on that timetable, he'll probably end up missing at least four games.
