Rick Nash might not be hitting the open market after all.
Nash is still undecided about whether or not he'll play next season, and in turn will forgo the July 1 signing period, his agent, Joe Resnick, told TSN's Darren Dreger.
Nash missed 12 games with the Boston Bruins during the final three weeks of the past regular season with a concussion and missed a total of 49 games over the last three years.
At least one of the teams believed to have interest in Nash is the Columbus Blue Jackets, who were reportedly at the top of his list of potential destinations, according to The Athletic's Aaron Portzline.
Nash is coming off a 2017-18 campaign in which he tallied 21 goals and 34 points split between the Bruins and the New York Rangers. Over his 15-year career, Nash has 437 goals and 805 points in 1,060 career games.
