Rick Nash Injury: Bruce Cassidy Gives Positive Update On Bruins Forward


April 1, 2018

Boston Bruins fans have been waiting for good news on Rick Nash, and Bruce Cassidy has delivered.

The Boston forward has missed the last seven games with a still-mysterious upper-body injury. But prior to the Bruins’ 5-1 win over the Florida Panthers on Saturday, Cassidy provided a (slightly) encouraging update on Nash.

“He’s been working out,” Cassidy said, via MassLive’s Conor Ryan. ” … He’s progressing, I guess at his pace.”

The fact that Nash is “progressing” at all is a positive development. However, the 33-year-old still isn’t skating, which raises doubt about whether he’ll appear in any of Boston’s five remaining regular-season games.

Nash, of course, isn’t the only Bruins player currently battling injuries.

During the Bruins’ thumping of the Panthers, center Riley Nash exited after taking a puck to the head, and defenseman Brandon Carlo was stretchered off after suffering a gruesome-looking leg injury. Neither player traveled with the team to Philadelphia, and Carlo reportedly was diagnosed with a broken left fibula.
