Rangers place Nash on IR
The New York Rangers have placed forward Rick Nash on injured reserve due to a head injury believed to be a concussion. Nash hasn't played since Tuesday when he was elbowed in the head by Brad Stuart during a game against the San Jose Sharks.

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The New York Rangers on Monday placed forward Rick Nash on injured reserve due to a head injury believed to be a concussion.

Nash hasn't played since Tuesday when he was elbowed in the head by Brad Stuart during a game against the San Jose Sharks.

Stuart was suspended for three games by the NHL's Department of Player Safety.

Nash was sent home from the team's road trip, missing games Thursday against the Anaheim Ducks and Saturday against the St. Louis Blues.

He also didn't practice Monday, and there is no timetable for when he could return to the lineup.

"He's still feeling some symptoms, so until I hear otherwise I don't expect him back," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said after practice.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
