Midseason Grades: Offense (1/2)

Rick Nash: (40 GP; 26G, 15A, 41 PTS) Finally the hockey player Ranger fans have been waiting for since the trade. Just 4 of Nash’s goals have come on the power play. Among the NHL’s best penalty killers at both ends of the rink. 3 shorthanded goals tied for second in the league. Buoyed Rangers […]
