New York Rangers forward Rick Nash reached an important milestone when his team won against the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday night. He played his 1000th game in the National Hockey League! Nash, 33, is currently playing in his sixth season with the blue shirts. He started his career with the Columbus Blue Jackets, after being drafted first overall in 2002.
The Brampton (Ontario) native as only scored one goal so far this season, and he has been involved in many trade talks for two reasons : the poor season start by the Rangers, and because his contract ends after this season. The 6'4", 211 pounds Canadian might interest some teams that would want to add some firepower in their lineup at the trade deadline. In 1000 games played in the NHL, Nash scored 417 goals and registered 772 total points. He added 41 points in 77 playoff games.
