Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Ends playoff dry spell
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash registered a goal and an assist with one shot and three hits Saturday in a 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay in Game 3.

The points were Nash's first of the postseason after he had been blanked in each of his first seven games. He got the Blue Jackets on the board less than two minutes into the second period with a snap shot from the left dot, then assisted on Eric Robinson's third-period goal. Nash has generated just 10 shots on goal in eight postseason games.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Breaks point drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash notched a goal and an assist in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Canucks.

Nash went the past seven games without a point and hasn't lit the lamp in 18 contests, but he broke through on both accounts. He notched a primary assist on Kevin Stenlund's first-period goal, and the 30-year-old lit the lamp in the third frame. The Blue Jackets ended up scoring four unanswered in the period to notch their 32nd win of the season.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: In action Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash (undisclosed) will be in the lineup against Minnesota on Friday, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

Nash will suit up after just one game on the shelf. Prior to getting hurt, the center was bogged down in a six-game pointless streak, and he hasn't scored a goal in his last 17 appearances. The Alberta native is set to take on a fourth-line role following the return of Alexander Wennberg (upper body).

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Won't play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash (undisclosed) will not suit up for Tuesday's clash with Minnesota, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.

Nash left the ice against the Senators on Monday after logging just 5:49 of ice time. The center remains stuck in a six-game pointless streak and hasn't found the back of the net in his previous 17 outings dating back to Jan. 14 versus Boston. With Nach on the shelf, fans will get their first look at the newly-acquired Devin Shore.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Injured Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash (undisclosed) left Monday's game against Ottawa and will not return.

Nash took a big hit behind the Senators' net and immediately left the ice and went down the tunnel. It's unclear what he's dealing with, but he should be considered questionable for Tuesday's game in Minnesota.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Goal drought at 14 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash has just one assist in his last 14 games.

The veteran center isn't relied upon as an offensive force for Columbus, but the team would still like to see a little more production from the fourth-liner. On the season, Nash has four goals and 12 points through 56 games with 56 shots on goal, 60 hits and a plus-5 rating.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Lights lamp versus Bruins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Bruins.

Nash logged 12:40 of ice time and made his limited action worthwhile, adding an insurance tally in the third period. The 30-year-old pivot has already exceeded last year's goal total with four through 42 games.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Pockets helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash recorded an assist and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Ducks.

Nash assisted on an Eric Robinson goal in the first period. The fourth-line center has 10 points through 39 games this season, a much better pace than his 12-point effort from 78 contests last year. Still, Nash hasn't produced enough offense to warrant much fantasy attention.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Pots fluky goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash scored his second goal of the season in Monday's win over the Capitals.

Picking up the puck in the corner on the forecheck, Nash flipped it towards the front of the net, only for his "shot" to somehow find twine after deflecting off Braden Holtby. The veteran center hadn't scored a point in almost a month, seeing four healthy scratches in addition to seven games with a goose egg on the scoresheet. Nash remains far from the fantasy radar with seven points in 25 games on the year.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Bumped to press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash was a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Avalanche.

The fourth-line grinder had gone six games without a point before finding himself in the press box this weekend in favor of Kole Sherwood. Nash has one goal and five points in 16 games on the season, and even once he works his way back into the lineup, he's unlikely to offer much fantasy value.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Fires home first goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash scored a short-handed goal in Monday's overtime win over the Maple Leafs.

He opened the scoring on the night with a strong effort, stripping Mitch Marner of the puck in Toronto's end and passing it to Nick Foligno in the slot before banging home the return feed. Nash had a rough first season with Columbus but is off to a much better start this time around, scoring a goal and four points through the first nine games of 2019-20.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Two helpers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash recorded two assists while adding three hits, two blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-1 rating in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Penguins.

The fourth-line center had a fairly impressive night considering the final score -- in fact, he was the only Jacket to finish with a positive plus-minus. Nash had a disappointing first season in Columbus, scoring only three goals and 12 points in 78 games, but he's gotten his second campaign with the club off to a strong start.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: In lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash (shoulder) will play in Tuesday's preseason matchup with Buffalo, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

Nash missed the final three games of the 2018-19 campaign due to his shoulder problem, but will be ready to go when the Jackets kick off the preseason Tuesday. Heading into the upcoming year, the center figures to be locked into a bottom-six role and likely won't get back to being a 40-plus point producer, as he was in his final season with Boston. At best, fantasy owners should expect the Alberta native to reach the 20-25 point range.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Season comes to end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash (shoulder) wasn't able to return to the lineup before Columbus was bounced from the playoffs.

Nash missed the final three games of a second-round series versus Boston after recording three points in the previous seven postseason contests. It was no doubt a disappointing year for the 29-year-old, as he saw his ice time drop to just 10:50 per game (compared to 15:25 in 2017-18) and with it, his production (12 points). The Blue Jackets signed the center coming off a career-high 41 points with Boston and have yet to see that player show up for them. Unless he can earn back some of those minutes, Nash figures to be a mid-range fantasy option at best heading into 2019-20.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Out for Game 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash (undisclosed) will not suit up for Monday's Game 6 tilt against the Bruins, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

Nash had two assists in the first three games of this series but has now missed three straight contests. It's unclear what type of injury the 6-foot-1 forward is dealing with or if he'll be ready for a possible Game 7 on Wednesday.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash (undisclosed) isn't expected to be available for Saturday's Game 5 against the Bruins, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

Nash wasn't on the ice for Saturday's morning skate, so it's essentially a foregone conclusion that he'll miss a second consecutive contest due to the undisclosed injury he suffered at some point during the first three games of the series. The 29-year-old forward will hope to heal up in time for Monday's Game 6 in Columbus.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Ruled out for Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash (undisclosed) will not play in Thursday's Game 4 matchup with the Bruins.

It's unknown what exactly is ailing Nash, but it could be an issue from any of the number of big hits he's taken this series. The Alberta native was sent to the locker room early in Game 2 with an unknown injury, but his issue Thursday could be anything. More information on this issue should surface ahead of Game 5 on Saturday.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash returned to the bench late in the first period of Saturday's Game 2 in Boston after going to the locker room earlier, Brian Hedger of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Nash has gotten the necessary repairs after getting mashed by Zdeno Chara earlier in the opening frame.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Hurt early in Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash (undisclosed) had to go to the locker room early in the first period of Saturday's Game 2 against Boston after taking a big hit, Brian Hedger of the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Nash took a massive open-ice hit from Zdeno Chara in the opening minute, as Chara got retribution for the big hit Nash leveled David Krejci with in Game 1. It's safe to say the Bruins aren't going to hold back against their former teammate, who now plies his trade in a bottom-six role for Columbus.

Blue Jackets' Riley Nash: Dishes out two apples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nash had two even-strength assists in 17:39 of ice time in Tuesday's 7-4 win against Boston.

The two assist will hope to instill confidence in Nash, who has just three points in his last 10 games. The 29-year-old has a career-low 1.5 shooting percentage this campaign, so some progression could be expected. With just 10 points in 66 games, Nash isn't someone to be relied upon going forward.
