The Bruins have acquired Rick Nash from the Rangers in exchange for Ryan Lindgren, Ryan Spooner, and Matt Beleskey, according to the official announcement.

Nash, 33, spent the past six seasons in NY after the Rangers acquired him via trade from the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Boston, which on Tuesday sent the Rangers a 2018 third-round pick and Rob O'Gara for Nick Holden, has cap issues, but the Rangers can retain up to 50 percent of Nash's remaining salary, which they're reportedly going to do.

Nash scored 18 goals and racked up 10 assists in 60 games for the Rangers this season.

Prior to his stint with the Rangers, Nash played nine seasons with the Columbus Blue Jackets, tying for the Maurice Richard Trophy in the 2003-04 campaign.

A three-time 40-goal scorer, Nash has 434 goals and 365 assists in 1,049 career National Hockey League games split between the Rangers and Columbus Blue Jackets.

The 33-year-old forward is in the final season of an eight-year contract and can become an unrestricted free agent July 1.

Lindgren is a 2016 second round draft pick now in his second season at the University of Minnesota.
