How Riley Nash’s List Of Goals Has Come To Fruition For Bruins

March 20, 2018 12:08 am

BOSTON, MA –

Riley Nash recently revealed that one way his Bruins teammates often teased him was by calling him Rick Nash.

Now the joke’s up because Rick Nash is wearing a Bruins sweater, and because Riley Nash has become a prolific scorer capable of temporarily filling in for the injured Patrice Bergeron without Boston missing a beat.

The 28-year-old Riley Nash, who was a first-round pick (21st overall) of the Edmonton Oilers in 2007, has met every challenge placed in front of him this season, including plugging in between Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak while Bergeron recovers from a fractured foot. Nash has eight points (three goals, five assists) in seven games and the Bruins are 6-1-0 since Bergeron went out of the lineup heading into Tuesday night’s game at Carolina.

Nash has already set career-highs for goals (13), assists (23) and points (36) in 66 games.

Some of the challenges Nash has met were made by coach Bruce Cassidy and his staff. Others Nash wrote down early this season.

As an aspiring professional hockey player, one of the most challenging things that both the athlete and family face is selecting the right person to help guide us through the journey.  For our family, this proved to be very true.  We considered it very fortunate that John was introduced and came to work with Kurt.  Since we began working with Kurt and his staff, they have given us guidance and sound advice every step of the way.  Kurt’s unparalleled knowledge of the hockey world and professional demeanor gave us the utmost confidence that John’s career is being managed properly.  We can’t imagine anyone else filling the role that he does for our family.  Lastly, we highly recommend Kurt and KO Sports to any young athlete that has the dream of becoming a professional hockey player.
