Nash to Miss a Week as Injuries Mount for Rangers

The injuries keep piling up for the New York Rangers. Add Rick Nash's body to the pile of walking wounded. The club announced that Nash would miss a week with a groin injury on Wednesday. Nash joins Pavel Buchnevich, Jimmy Vesey, Matt Puempel and Mika Zibanejad as players who have been recently knocked out of the lineup.

The good news--if there is any--for the Rangers is that they have tons of depth and that many of the injuries are not that serious. Unfortunately it is going to be a while for Buchnevich and Zibanejad, two of the most exciting off-season acquisitions who were off to fast starts in New York.

Also of note: There should be more news on the severity of Nash's injury tomorrow:
