The New York Rangers are sitting both Rick Nash and Michael Grabner amid continuing trade talks and the two won’t be playing as the Rangers take on the Montreal Canadiens, according to Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post.
Per the report, while trade talks are “inching closer to completion” nothing seems imminent at the time. Still, the Rangers are taking this measure as talks intensify.
Grabner and Nash are both pending unrestricted free agents.
Grabner has scored 25 goals in 59 games this season while Nash has scored 18 goals in 60 games.
