Great News For Rick Nash.

The Boston Bruins have been without their big trade deadline pickup for 9 games now and that number will grow to 10 after Thursday's game. 

Forward Rick Nash suffered an upper body injury last month against the Tampa Bay Lightning, and head coach Bruce Cassidy has been very secretive when it comes to the winger's status. 

Cassidy finally broke his silence with some big news regarding Nash. 

"He skated (on Wednesday), so that's good," per NBC Sports Boston's Joe Haggerty.

"He's a day closer when you're skating. Now that he's skating, not speaking out of turn, there would be a chance (he could play this weekend).

I'm not saying he will or he won't, but he's obviously closer than he was three days ago when he wasn't even skating."

The Bruins have back to back games this weekend against the Ottawa Senators and the Florida Panthers, and it looks like Nash might be able to play in at least one of those games to get warmed up for the playoffs. 

The 33 year old has three goals and three assists in 11 games since joining the Bruins at the trade deadline.
