New York Rangers forward Rick Nash will play Tuesday against the Boston Bruins.
Nash returns to the lineup for the first time since Oct. 8 when he suffered a concussion on a high hit by San Jose Sharks’ Brad Stuart.
Nash, 29, has been skating for more than a week and was cleared for contact Nov. 15.
“Dealing with the brain, you always want to be careful,” Nash said Nov. 9 after his skate. “I’m inching forward here. I’m getting better.”
