Report: Rick Nash Injures Shoulder Playing in Switzerland, Removed From Game as Precaution

Report: Rick Nash Injures Shoulder Playing in Switzerland, Removed From Game as PrecautionEvery NHL front office's worst nightmare during the lockout is that while playing in a league that isn't locking out its players, one of their own could get injured. New York Rangers, come on down!

Rick Nash hurt his shoulder and was removed from a game in Switzerland, according to TSN's Darren Dreger, not yet having played a single game in a Rangers sweater. Instead, it was as a member of HC Davos that he got hurt.

Dreger clarified that Nash's injury was not to his head, and that the forward was removed for precautionary reasons, but that won't do much to assuage fears in the Big Apple.

The 28-year-old Nash, who was traded to New York from Columbus in July, will be re-evaluated in a couple of days.
