Rick Nash injured his shoulder in Swiss game. His agent, Joe Resnick says he was taken out of game and will be re-evaluated in a cpl days.— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) September 28, 2012
Resnick stressed, Nash's injury is shoulder and not head as some have speculated. Taken out of game for precautionary reasons.— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) September 28, 2012
...so much for no new updates. And for us Rangers fans, Dreger is the last guy we want confirming this news.
Update, 6:15 p.m.:
Based on the remarkable intensity the Swiss media is working on unraveling this Nash mystery, I wouldn't expect anything new today. #Rangers— Matias Strozyk (@MaStrozyk) September 28, 2012
Update, 6:05 p.m.:
If the name of the guy who hit Nash, Ilkka Heikkinen, sounds familiar he was under contract with the Rangers back in 2009-10. He left the Rangers for the KHL after not being happy having a two-way NHL deal.
...guess making him unhappy came back to burn the Rangers.
Update, 5:57 p.m.:
Steve Zipay at Newsday says he has not been able to confirm anything on Nash injury.
...not sure if that's good or bad.
Update, 5:07 p.m.:
According to suedostschweiz.ch, Nash was "groggy"after the hit.
Update, 4:59 p.m.:
Strozyk adds that more likely story is injured shoulder, not concussion.
Update, 4:53 p.m.:
There's an early concussion rumour around Rick Nash's 1st period departure after a hard collision w/ Ilkka Heikkinen. Too soon to tell. #NHL— Matias Strozyk (@MaStrozyk) September 28, 2012
...you have got to be kidding me.
...God damn Bettman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
@TheNYRBlog Hi, I'm trying to get 2 tickets to watch #NYRangers on 11/1. I'm visiting from England. Would you be able to help me out?
@KyleSpel @tonygraz10 injury isn't bad, nothing wrong with head, going to sit out a week for shoulder
@mikev1969 @kylespel yea I was able to exhale after I seen the tweet from @NYDNRangers that the injury wasn't to the head
@tonygraz10 @mikev1969 @nydnrangers The NHL/ owners can only blame themselves if their stars get hurt.
@tonygraz10 @mikev1969 @nydnrangers for some reason I don't believe it. Shoulder could put you out for awhile to if it's true.
@tonygraz10 @mikev1969 They will both get what they want at the fans expense. Increased prices for everything across the board.
@tonygraz10 @mikev1969 I agree with Mike. We will see if it's true in a week. The owners and players are both to blame.

@tonygraz10 @kylespel owners need to realize players took 24% cut and agreed to cap in '05! NHLPA can come closer to 50-50 split get it done
@mikev1969 @kylespel I hope they settle within a week to be honest Nash Is a big boy he should be fine
@KyleSpel @tonygraz10 I'm not worried, if it was serious they'd say it, they aren't gonna hide it, if he's playing in a week we know its ok
@mikev1969 @tonygraz10 would be playing locally and this maybe not happening if there was no lockout.
@mikev1969 @tonygraz10 If it is, the owners know that the fans will get more pissed at them knowing these players
@mikev1969 @tonygraz10 I didn't say that he would be out for the year, I just think it may be more serious than what they say.
@TheNYRBlog if the injury is serious, then I don't want the season to start anytime soon. No Nash + no Gabby = no good.
@TheNYRBlog unreal these guys shouldn't be allowed to play. This lockout needs to go away for so many reasons! @NHLFanAlliance
@TheNYRBlog how do you go from shoulder injury to concussion? I'm no dr, but can't they tell the difference between his head and shoulder?
@TheBroadwayHat @thenyrblog like you're even surprised! Saw that coming a mile away #FireBettman end the #nhl lockout!
I didn't want to drink til I pass out tonight. I wanted to go fishing or something tomorrow. I need hockey erased from my brain.
@TheNYRBlog part Bettman's fault, part Nash's fault, part Dolan and 29 owners fault, part Rosival's fault.
