Riley Nash will be scratched against the Devils on Sunday afternoon.

Nash took a hard spill on Saturday into his own net, and appeared to have suffered a lower body ailment. However the team hasn't noted as such, and he did play 15:33. Either way, with just 21 points and 57 hits to his credit through 61 games thus far Nash doesn't provide much fantasy value.
Mar 27 - 2:59 PM

Riley Nash had two assists in a 3-2 overtime victory against Boston Thursday night.

This was Nash's third multi-point game of the season and the first that involved him getting at least two helpers. He has seven goals and 18 points in 54 contests in 2015-16.
Mar 11 - 10:45 AM

Riley Nash had a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

Both of Nash's points came on the man-advantage. He set up Jordan Staal's first period goal and he added the game-winner in the second period. The 26-year-old has picked up six points in his last seven contests. Nash has six goals and 13 points in 43 games this season.
Feb 16 - 9:47 PM

Riley Nash scored a pair of goals in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

This was his first game back after missing two contests due to an illness. Nash gave the Canes a 2-0 lead in the first period and he also put home Carolina's fifth goal of the night. Jeff Skinner, John-Michael Liles and Joakim Nordstrom also found the back of the net for the Hurricanes. Nash has four goals and nine points in 38 games this season.
Jan 26 - 10:23 PM

Riley Nash, who is sick, will join Chris Terry and Michal Jordan as scratches from Friday's match with the Rangers.

Unfortunately there isn't a lick of potential fantasy value between any of these three players, whom, to one degree or another, are allergic to accumulating meaningful counting stats.
Jan 22 - 7:07 PM

Riley Nash will be scratched against Florida on Friday night.

Despite recording an assist on Dec. 8th, Nash will now have been scratched in four straight games. With just four points and 16 hits in 21 games this season, it's easy to understand why.

Riley Nash appears to be a healthy scratch Friday night against the Ducks.

Chris Terry will draw back into the lineup in place of Riley Nash. Nash has four points in 21 games and has no fantasy upside.

Riley Nash and Michal Jordan will be scratched from Tuesday's match with Dallas.

Unfortunately neither have much of any fantasy value to speak of. Nash has three points in 20 games thus far, while Jordan has none in 10.

Riley Nash will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's match with Montreal.

Sat, Dec 5, 2015 06:37:00 PM

Riley Nash has gone 12 straight games without recording a point.

Nash has a goal and two assists in 18 contests in 2015-16. He's likely to finish the season with 20-30 points if he can stay healthy, which is in line with what he did in each of his last two campaigns.

Riley Nash had an assist in Carolina's 3-1 win against the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday.

Nash has two points in four games this season. His lack of playing time thus far can be attributed to a shoulder injury that cost him about two weeks.

Riley Nash (shoulder) returned to action on Saturday.

Nash missed two weeks with the injury which was a perfect call since the diagnosis was 10-14 days when the incident occurred against the Red Wings. Nash picked up his first goal of the season against San Jose but it was too little, too late, as the Hurricanes dropped a 5-2 decision to the Sharks. Nash had 25 points last season including eight goals and that seems to be a good place to put his stats again in 2015-16.

Riley Nash will be sidelined for 10-14 days due to a shoulder injury.

He logged just 1:54 of ice time on five shifts against Detroit on Saturday before exiting the game. Nash had eight goals and 25 points in 68 games last season.
