Rick Nash Retires Due To Concussion-Symptoms 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jan 11, 2019 8:12 pm

Rick Nash, a 34-year-old left winger and one of the most prolific scorers in recent NHL history, has retired due to concussion-related symptoms, his agent announced Friday.

\"Due to unresolved issues/symptoms from the concussion sustained last March, Rick Nash will be forced to retire from the game of hockey. Under the advice of his medical team, the risk of further brain injury is far too great if Rick returns to play,\" his agent Joe Resnick said in a statement. \"Rick would like to thank everyone who has supported him during this difficult time period.\"

Damn, that sucks. :(

It's always sad when an elite athlete is forced to retire prematurely.
