Nash injured, may miss remainder of season

Riley Nash of Kamloops suffered a sprained knee on Sunday while playing for his Columbus Blue Jackets against the Florida Panthers and is expected to be out of the lineup for four to six weeks.

The 31-year-old forward, a third- or fourth-line checking centre who takes faceoffs and kills penalties, is in the final year of his contract with the Blue Jackets and was subject to rumours ahead of the Monday, April 12, NHL trade deadline.

Nash has two goals and seven points through 37 games this campaign and is likely to enter the off-season as an unrestricted free agent.

He may have played his last game for the Blue Jackets, who are not likely to qualify for the post-season.
