Rick Nash officially is hanging up his skates.

Rick Nash announced his retirement from the National Hockey League on Friday due to "unresolved issues/symptoms from the concussions sustained last March".

The Rangers acquired Nash after the 2012 season and he played six seasons on Broadway before being dealt to Boston before last season's trade deadline.

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.

According to Dreger, the Toronto Maple Leafs, San Jose Sharks, Columbus Blue Jackets, Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins were among the teams who checked in with Nash over the past few months. He returned for the Bruins' playoff run, which ended with a second-round loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning, and initially wanted to play this season, Resnick told NHL.com on Friday, before deciding to retire on the advice of his medical team.

Eligible for unrestricted free agency when his contract expired at the end of last season, Nash chose to take some time away from the game and mull his future.

The winger suffered a concussion at the end of March 2018 and missed the Bruins' final 12 games of the season but he did return for the playoffs and played in all 12 of the Bruins' post-season games.

Nash concludes his career with 437 goals and 805 points in 1,060 games split between the Blue Jackets, Rangers, and Bruins.

But in June it was reported that Nash would not be fielding free agent offers while he continued his concussion recovery, despite contracts being on the table. He also enjoyed incredible success on the worldwide stage, winning two Olympic gold medals for Canada and three silvers at the World Championship. "But there's definitely a chance that I don't". He had five points (three goals, two assists) in 12 Stanley Cup Playoff games.
