Rick Nash has been dealt to the New York Rangers, according to TSN's Darren Dreger, in a deal that sees the Rangers give up Artem Anisimov, Brandon Dubinsky, prospect defenseman Tim Erixon and a first-round pick in the blockbuster trade.
The deal also sees the Jackets give up prospect defenseman Steve Delisle, and a conditional third-round pick in the exchange.
Upon his arrival on Broadway, Nash will undoubtedly help the Rangers score more goals—a definite hole in the Rangers' overall game last year.
