    Hurricanes' Riley Nash: Strikes twice in return

    Nash scored two goals -- one against each of Chicago's netminders -- in Tuesday's 5-0 victory. Making his return from an illness that held him out a couple games, Nash had four takeaways and his second-best shooting day of the year with five pucks on net. Despite this fine effort, the 26-year-old forward still owns only nine points in 38 games for the season, and his lack of peripheral fantasy stats leaves his value close to rock bottom.

    Hurricanes' Riley Nash: Out again Sunday

    Nash will sit out again Sunday against the Flames. Nash came down with an illness before Friday's game, and will now sit out two straight contests because of it. However, he has just seven points through 37 games this season, so it shouldn't make too much of an impact, but Chris Terry will draw into the lineup in his place Sunday. Nash's next chance to return now comes Tuesday against the Blackhawks, but the team should update his status before then.

    Hurricanes' Riley Nash: Rejoins lineup following benching

    Nash rejoined the lineup Saturday against the Penguins following a four-game stint as a healthy scratch. He saw ice time of just 5:35 playing on the Hurricanes' fourth line. Previously, Nash was being used in a top-six role the past two seasons, but that has all changed this year as he has landed squarely in coach Bill Peters' doghouse. With just four points in 22 games, it's easy to see why. He should not be in anyone's fantasy lineup right now.

    Hurricanes' Riley Nash: Moves up to Canes' second line

    Nash is expected to center the second line Saturday against the Flyers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports. Despite having just three points in 11 games so far this season, Nash suddenly finds himself in a top-six role alongside Jeff Skinner and Kris Versteeg. Nash's ice time has also increased, from 16:03 in his first game to roughly 18 minutes currently. For those of you in deeper leagues, feel free to pluck him from the waiver wire and hope he can make something click with his new linemates.

    Hurricanes' Riley Nash: Coach deems Nash ready to play

    Hurricanes head coach Bill Peters told reporters Saturday that he believes Nash (shoulder) is ready to play. Nash has been held out of game action since sustaining the malady Oct. 10 against Detroit. If he returns Saturday against the Sharks, as expected, Nash should provide some help to a Hurricanes' penalty kill that currently stands at 76.5 percent, seventh worst in the league.

    Nash remains sidelined with a shoulder injury. Nash is nearing the early end of his return timetable, but he is not ready for game action just yet. He did resume skating with a non-contact jersey earlier this week, so it should not be long before he is back on the ice with the Hurricanes.
