Nash thanks Columbus fans

Former Blue Jackets captain Rick Nash took out a full page ad from the Columbus Dispatch on Friday to thank his fans for their nine years of support when he was a member of the team.

The 28-year-old was traded to the New York Rangers on July 23, but has always claimed that the move was to benefit Columbus' rebuilding and give a fresh start to his career.

He has always been grateful to his fans in Columbus, and sent out the following message:

"Dear Blue Jackets fans,

Thank you for the unwavering support you have shown me over the past nine seasons.

I am so fortunate to have had the chance to call Columbus home and to say proudly that I am from the Buckeye state.

Thanks for the Memories. Thanks for everything.

Rick Nash"

In 82 games with the Jackets last season, Nash collected 30 goals and 29 assists for 59 points.
