Found November 15, 2013 on Blue Seat Blogs:
Per Pat Leonard, Rick Nash is wearing a full contact jersey today in practice.

The Rangers are that much closer to their best player returning to the lineup. Also per Leonard, Michael Del Zotto appears to be a healthy scratch, as he is paired with Nash on defense. Justin Falk is skating with John Moore. Tweet

Musings: Are the Rangers prospects underrated?
