The Boston Bruins have acquired Rick Nash on Sunday from the New York Rangers. The Rangers traded forwards Ryan Spooner and Matt Beleskey, along with prospect Ryan Lindgren.

The Rangers are also receiving a 2018 first-round pick from the Bruins. They are also receiving a seventh-round draft pick in 2019.

While the Rangers received a haul in exchange for Nash, they are also retaining 50% of his remaining salary. The Bruins will also retain 50% of Beleskey’s salary.

The 33-year-old Nash is in the final year of an eight-year, $62.4 million deal. He’s making $8.2 million this season. The 29-year-old Beleskey has three-years left on a five-year, $19 million deal.

Nash will be joining his third NHL team, who began his NHL career with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Beleskey will be paid $4 million during the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons. He’s slated to make $3 million during the 2019-20 season.

Nash is definitely not the player he once was, as the winger has just 18 goals in 60 games this season. He has 10 assists for 28 points.

Beleskey, 29, has only played in 14 games with the Bruins this season. He had zero points with a -8 in +/- and 17 PIM. This will be his third NHL team after playing for the Bruins and the Anaheim Ducks.

Spooner, 26, who will be playing for his second NHL team after playing his entire career with the Bruins, has nine goals and 16 assists for 25 points in 39 games this season. His best season came in 2015-16 when he had a career season with 13 goals and 36 assists for 49 points.

The 20-year-old Lindgren is a member of the Minnesota Golden Gophers. He has two goals and five assists for seven points in 33 games this season.
