Sorry for the late news here. Our personal lives prevented us from a timely update on the Rick Nash injury. In Friday night’s 4-2 loss for HC Davos, the Ranger winger injured his shoulder in the first period. Ironically enough, the injury came from a collision with former Ranger Ilkka Heikkinen. Nash left the game in the first period as a precaution.

An MRI from yesterday showed no structural damage, and Nash is expected to be out for no longer than a week. Safe to say Nash and the Rangers dodged a bullet there.

Nash took some criticism from Ranger fans when he decided to head to Switzerland during the lockout. It’s likely that he’s still going to get some criticism from this injury. It’s worth noting that injuries, especially injuries stemming from collisions, can happen in team practices as well.
