Rick Nash announces retirement after 15 National Hockey League seasons

Rick Nash

Following consultation with doctors, the 34-year-old chose to quit sport to avoid possible brain injury which concussion-related complications might provoke.

"Due to unresolved issues/symptoms from the concussion sustained last March, Rick Nash will be forced to retire from the game of hockey".

Resnick told NHL.com on Friday that Nash was holding out hope he could play this season, but on advice of his medical team made a decision to retire. Rick would like to thank everyone who has supported him during this hard time period, " the statement read.

Paquette was not given a penalty on the play and didn't receive a suspension or fine from the National Hockey League. Still dealing with the effects of a concussion, it has now forced him to retire. He sustained a concussion shortly after the trade and scored three goals and six points in 11 regular-season games.

An unrestricted free agent after the season, Nash showed interest in coming back to the Bruins, but announced in June he was sitting out the start of the free-agent signing period.

In October, Nash said that while he missed the game, there was a good chance that he wouldn't return.

Nash was drafted first overall in 2002 by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Bruins acquired Nash from the Rangers last February in exchange for Ryan Spooner, Matt Beleskey, Ryan Lindgren, a first-round pick and a seventh-round pick. "But there's definitely a chance that I don't".

Nash sustained at least four concussions during his National Hockey League career.

Nash, 34, finishes his career with 437 goals and 368 assists in 1,060 games. His 674 regular-season games with the Blue Jackets remains a franchise record, and he's the runaway leader in almost every scoring category by a wide margin. He spent almost six seasons with the Rangers, making it to the Stanley Cup final in 2014 (losing to the Los Angeles Kings) and scoring a career-high 42 goals in 2014-15.

Nash is also a two-time Olympic gold medalist, winning in 2010 and 2014 with Team Canada.
