Per Pat Leonard, the Rangers have placed concussed winger Rick Nash on injured reserve. The move is a paperwork move, and it allows the Rangers an extra roster spot to call up an additional forward for Wednesday’s game in Washington after waiving Arron Asham.
It is expected that the Rangers will call up one or both of J.T. Miller and Chris Kreider.
Note that this is not LTIR, the Rangers do not gain additional cap space.
