Rick Nash! Remember him? He was the Bruins' big deadline acquisition.
He got off to a good start, then got hurt against Tampa and just...disappeared.
He wasn't at practices. He wasn't working out. Bruce Cassidy basically said during the road trip that he had no idea what was going on with him.
In all likelihood, Rick Nash is actually a super spy and has been out on a super secret mission. Thank you for your service.
However, the Bruins issued an update (kind of) today.
Bruce Cassidy on Rick Nash (upper-body): "He’s improving daily, still not ready to play. Saw him this morning. He was working out. That’s where he’s at right now. Not on the ice yet." #NHLBruins— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) March 29, 2018
Alright, so he still exists! That's good. And it looks like progress is being made.
It's been widely speculated that he was concussed against Tampa. @dafoomie posted what he thought was the problem hit the other day:
Here's to hoping he's well soon, but I wouldn't count on him being back until right before the playoffs.
