Rick Nash Won’t Rush Return

from Steve Zipay of Newsday,

"The plan is each day to do more and more on the ice and in the gym and see if any symptoms pop up," said Nash, who has scored 30 or more goals seven times. "And as we move along, just kind of work my way back into game situations. I've been in touch with the doctors the whole time, obviously, we'll keep them in the loop. It's day by day. We'll figure it out tonight and go to a new game plan in the morning."

The next step would be a full-team practice, then taking contact in others.

But Nash, who is signed through the 2018-19 season with a cap hit of $7.8 million per year, said there was no need to hurry back into the lineup.

"When you look at it, New York's invested a lot in me and I've invested a lot in them," he said. "I think even if we were losing, it would be stupid to rush back, just because of that. It's a long-term contract and we want to make sure from both sides that I come back at 110 percent ready to play."
