Lightning acquire Riley Nash from Coyotes, assign him to Syracuse

The Tampa Bay Lightning announced Monday that they have acquired forward Riley Nash from Arizona Coyotes in exchange for future considerations.

Nash has been assigned to the Syracuse Crunch.

The 32-year-old has played in 49 games this season between Arizona, Tampa Bay and Winnipeg, notching four assists, all with the Coyotes. Nash began the season in Winnipeg before being claimed off waivers by the Lightning December 7. He skated in 10 games with Tampa Bay before Arizona claimed him off waivers on January 6.


He has played in 627 career games over 11 seasons with Carolina, Boston, Columbus, Winnipeg, Tampa Bay and Arizona, accumulating 63 goals and 176 career points. He made his NHL debut with Carolina during the 2011-12 season. Nash was originally drafted by Edmonton in the first round (21st overall) of the 2007 NHL Draft.

Syracuse will be back in action on Wednesday when they host the Cleveland Monsters at 7 p.m.
