Veteran winger Rick Nash is undecided on continuing his playing career and will forego the July 1 signing period, his agent Joe Resnick informed TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger.
Dreger reported earlier this week that at least five teams had been pursuing the winger, but they have since been informed of his decision.
Nash, 34, scored 21 goals and tallied 13 assists over 71 games with the New York Rangers and Bruins last season, his 15th year in the NHL.
The Bruins acquired Nash from the Rangers at the trade deadline for Ryan Spooner, Matt Beleskey, Ryan Lindgren, a 2018 first-round pick and a 2019 seventh-round pick. Nash, however, sustained a concussion shortly after the trade.
He scored three goals and added two assists in 12 playoff games for the Bruins.
"It was disappointing with having the concussion and having some effects during it and only playing a certain amount of games and then coming back for the playoffs," Nash when the Bruins were eliminated from the postseason. "But everything was positive. The organization was great, the guys were awesome, so it was a great chapter here and hopefully it can continue."
The Brampton native was selected first overall in the 2002 NHL Draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets and scored 289 goals with 258 assists over 674 career games with the organization.
The six-time All-Star won the 2003-04 Maurice Richard Trophy in his sophomore season. Nash is coming off an eight-year, $62.4 million contract and is ranked seventh on TSN's free agent list.
