The New York Rangers still won't tell us what's wrong with Rick Nash, but they put him on IR today to make room on the roster fore call-up Christian Thomas.

The team put him on retroactive to last Sunday, so if he's healthy, he'll be eligible to play Tuesday against Winnipeg.

The problem here, is that the Rangers won't disclose what exactly is wrong with Nash. But the fact that it's significant for him to go on IR. He received a hit to the head last week against the Boston Bruins, so speculation has sufficed that he could have a concussion.

Reports have also stemmed that a groin injury he picked up while playing with HC Davos in Switzerland during the NHL Lockout has flared back up.

Either way, John Tortorella and Co. haven't opened up what's wrong with Nash. Maybe now that he's been officially shelved, perhaps they will before tonight's game.
