Good news for the New York Rangers — Rick Nash says he’s “symptom-free” from the head injury he suffered Oct. 8 when he was hit by Sharks defenseman Brad Stuart.

“[I am] symptom-free from the injury,” he said today, per NHL.com. “Just [need to] push myself more and more and see if any symptoms come back from it. But so far it’s been good.”

Nash has skated for four straight days. However, he’s still got a ways to go before he’s back in the lineup.

“When you look at it, New York has invested a lot in me and I’ve invested a lot in them,” he said. “I think even if we were losing it would be stupid to rush back. It’s a long-term contract and we want to make sure I come back at 110 percent and ready to play.”

The Rangers, of course, aren’t losing anymore; in fact, they’ve won six of their last seven following a 3-7-0 start under new head coach Alain Vigneault.

New York hosts rival New Jersey tonight at MSG.
