Rick Nash injury: Rangers forward won't travel to Ottawa

USA TODAY Sports

The New York Rangers won't say what is wrong with Rick Nash and Nash won't be traveling with the team to Ottawa. John Tortorella probably won't be much help either.

Nobody seems to know for sure what is going on with New York Rangers forward Rick Nash.

After suffering a hit from Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic last Tuesday, some have speculated that Nash is dealing with a concussion, or, the post-symptoms of a concussion. Either way, the Rangers have yet to say whether Nash actually suffered a concussion and head coach John Tortorella, well, he hasn't been much help in getting to the bottom of the matter.

While the team has largely remained silent on the specifics surrounding Nash, they did announce on Wednesday afternoon that he will not be traveling with the team to Ottawa. This will mark the second consecutive game Nash has missed as he sat out Tuesday night's game against the Montreal Canadiens.

Despite not traveling with the Rangers, there is a chance that he will re-join the team in Montreal for Saturday night's contest with the Canadiens.

Entering Thursday night, Nash leads the Rangers in total points and is tied for the team-lead in assists.
