Rick Nash LW NYR 17 Days

Nash received a maintenance day and did not take part in Tuesday's practice, Newsday's Steve Zipay reports.

Nash does not appear in any danger of missing the Rangers' season opener, but he may not be 100 percent healthy heading into the regular season, which is not exactly the news fantasy owners wanted to hear after Nash played in just 65 games and averaged a career-low 17:01 TOI last season.

Nash finished the preseason with no goals and just one assist in three games played.

Nash had a down year in 2013-14 and has struggled to find his scoring touch that he had at the beginning of his career in Columbus. Nash played in 65 games last season so if he is able to remain healthy, his offensive numbers should increase. For now he is slotted to be on the Rangers first line with Derick Brassard and Chris Kreider but with the possibility of Martin St. Louis playing center and Anthony Duclair making the final roster, Nash's line mates could change.

After Rick Nash scored a mere three goals in the recent post-season, there's been plenty of speculation that the New York Rangers would try to trade the highly paid, high-profile right winger.

Larry Brooks, however, insists in a New York Post column that such a trade will not be happening. "Nash has a no-move clause in his contract in force through the end of this season that management has no intention of asking him to waive and No. 61 has no intention of volunteering to forfeit," Brooks writes. "The Rangers are not asking Nash to leave town after two seasons on Broadway in which he led the team in goal-scoring both times, and No. 61 is not asking for an exit from New York after recording a sum of four goals in 37 playoff games. The concept is not on the table for either party."

Rick Nash's disappointing playoffs ended with just three goals and seven assists.

However, he did finish with a playoffs-high 83 shots on goal. The lack of goal scoring will certainly leave a sour taste in the mouths of Rangers fans and fantasy owners, but don't let it drop Nash down on your draft board too much next season. Nash might not be the force he was a few years ago, but he'll be just 30 when the season starts and is coming off a season in which he potted 26 goals with 13 assists in 65 games. Another training camp under Alain Vigneault and some better luck could help him.

Rick Nash was back to receiving power-play ice time on Monday.

Nash didn't get a lot though as he logged just 2:18 minutes over the course of six power plays. "I liked his effort level tonight," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. "He battled real hard like he's done through the playoffs for us. Doesn't have a lot to show for it but he's competing hard. I just wanted to see if we couldn't throw a different look at them." Nash has just three goals and 10 points in 24 playoff games.

Rick Nash and the Rangers were held without a goal in Monday's 3-0 loss to the Kings in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Nash has yet to garner a point in the Finals, despite having fired 15 shots in the direction of L.A. netminder Jonathan Quick. For the postseason as a whole, the slick winger has accounted for only 10 points in 23 contests, making him one of the bigger disappointments in these playoffs.

Despite putting eight shots on goal, Rick Nash was held pointless in Game 2.

Nash has had a tough time scoring in the playoffs as he has only 10 points in 22 games. He also managed five hits on Saturday but the Rangers need him to start finding the back of the net if New York is going to celebrate their first Stanley Cup in 20 years. Game 3 goes on Monday at Madison Square Garden.

Rick Nash has accounted for just four goals in 33 games for the New York Rangers in the playoffs.

He produced three goals in six games against Montreal last round and had one marker in five contests versus Boston last year. "I've got to find a way to finish some of those chances," Nash said referring to his Game 1 performance in the Stanley Cup Final. "Just get to the inside, try to get some better opportunities, better chances. I think our line has to establish more of a forecheck. I thought we had a good first period, had some chances. After that, we just had too many turnovers." Nash has 10 points in 21 matches during the Rangers' playoff run.

Rick Nash played just 13 seconds of ice time on the power play during Game 1's loss to Los Angeles.

The Rangers had three man advantage situations in the contest. Coach Alain Vigneault wasn't happy with questions suggesting that he needs to get Nash going by giving him more power-play minutes. "I'm not sure if you followed our series very closely, but Rick has been playing some real good hockey," Vigneault said. "He's done some great defensive plays for us. He's been a big part of why we are where we are." The Rangers coach likes that Nash is generating plenty of chances even though he hasn't had much luck at finishing them. He has three goals and seven assists in 21 playoff contests.
