Interview: Rick Nash On The Rangers and Being in Switzerland

Written by and interview conducted by: Andrea Branca, Nicola Martinetti (heshootshescoores.com)

AMBRÌ – There are many NHL players currently playing in the swiss NLA, but New York Rangers’ Rick Nash is for sure one of the most followed and anticipated. He already played for HC Davos in the 2004-2005 lockout, winning the swiss championship with his friend and teammate Joe Thornton, at that time captain of the Boston Bruins.

8 years later Rick Nash – 678 NHL games, 550 points all with the Columbus Blue Jackets and an olympic gold medal won in Vancouver in 2010 – came back to Davos to spent in Switzerland his “free time” due to another NHL lockout. Nash, after being at the center of a big trade move by New York that saw him becoming the missing piece in Rangers’ pursuit to the Stanley Cup, couldn’t make his debut as expected on October 12 in Los Angeles against the Kings. Instead, he’s trying to help Davos in a disappointing season start: the team was able to get only 11 points in 13 games (in Switzerland a victory gives you 3 points); despite that, Rick Nash and Joe Thornton are leaving their marks (again) on the  swiss league. In fact, Rangers’ superstar scored 6 goals in 6 game, while the Captain of the San Jose Sharks is actually the top scorer of the team with 9 points in 10 games.

On October 13 Rick Nash was in Ambrì for the game between HC Ambrì Piotta and HC Davos; at the end of the game we had the amazing opportunity to talk with him for a couple of minutes: “Tonight we didn’t play our best game, it’s a tough lost. We absolutely need points, we are close to the last place, the situation where we are right now it’s of course disappointing”.

Rick Nash, do you think something changed in Davos since the last lockout?

“Well, obviously the players that I’m playing with have changed, but not much other then that. That’s because I think we got a lot of things that we have to fix, we got to be a lot better”.
