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.

I first met Kevin Magnuson when I was playing midget in Illinois . . . we instantly got along really well and he fit in really well with my family which is important to me when choosing a family advisor and someone that would become my agent and he is just a very honest and trustworthy guy, which I liked, and we have been close ever since.
