Rick Nash has returned to New York from the Rangers' West Coast road trip and will reportedly miss at least the next two games after suffering a concussion in San Jose on Tuesday.
Larry Brooks of the New York Post wrote on Thursday that Nash will miss the Rangers' next games on Thursday and Saturday. Brooks reported that there is no guarantee that Nash will be available next Wednesday when the Rangers visit the Washington Capitals.
Brad Stuart, who caught Nash with a check to the head during San Jose's 9-2 victory, was suspended three games by the NHL on Wednesday.
Nash played several shifts after the hit, but did not return for the second period.
"It just didn't feel right," Nash said after the game Tuesday. "Any time you get a head shot, you're concerned. It's not a good feeling."
