Rick Nash Open To Staying With Bruins

Published

Boston Bruins’ impending free agent Rick Nash is open to staying with the Bruins, according to NHL.com’s Matt Kalman.

“It was disappointing with having the concussion and having some effects during it and only playing a certain amount of games and then coming back for the playoffs,”Nash said on Wednesday. “But everything was positive. The organization was great, the guys were awesome, so it was a great chapter here and hopefully it can continue.”

Nash, 33, was acquired by Boston, via trade, back in February and went on to score 3 goals over 11 regular season games, but missed 12 games due to a concussion.

Nash also added five points (three goals, two assists) in 12 playoff games.

Nash will enter free agency for the first time since 2009, and still prioritizes winning as he seeks his next contract.

“Obviously to win, that’s No. 1,” Nash said about his free agency goals. “No. 2 is a good place to live, a good place that my family enjoys. And Boston’s been great. It’s been a pretty seamless transition for us, so everything was positive.”
