Nash's agent, Joe Resnick, revealed in a statement Friday that the 34-year-old left wing has chose to retire due to concussion-related symptoms.
The 34-year-old most recently played for the Boston Bruins in the 2017-18 season after being acquired ahead of the trade deadline from the New York Rangers.
Six-time NHL All-Star Rick Nash is retiring, citing ongoing concussion symptoms and the risk of further brain injuries, his agent announced in a statement Friday. After a few months of weighing his options, Nash decided it would be best if he just retired in order to keep his health intact. Playing for the Blue Jackets, New York Rangers and Boston Bruins, Nash had 437 goals and 368 assists in 1,060 career games. While with the Bruins, Nash had three goals and three assists in 11 regular-season games and three goals and two assists in 12 playoff games.
The Bruins spent big to get Nash, sending the Rangers forwards Ryan Spooner and Matt Beleskey, defense prospect Ryan Lindgren, and a pair of draft picks, including their first rounder last summer.

In the 2003-04 season, Nash shared the Rocket Richard Trophy as the NHL's top goal-scorer with Jarome Iginla and Ilya Kovalchuk when they each scored 41 goals.
In October, Nash said that while he missed the game, there was a good chance that he wouldn't return. "The game has been my whole life, so it's been a hard adjustment to not show up for training camp, for fitness testing ... it's been really tough". There's a chance I could get healthy, come back and be great.
