Gross spoke with Rangers GM Glen Sather about Nash and Sather said that Nash having experience in Davos, in 2004-05, makes him feel more comfortable about the situation as Nash is familiar with their medical staff.
Sather went on to add "It’s no different playing over there than playing here because here you can get hurt playing in the American League or you can get hurt playing junior. I don’t think it’s a huge risk for anyone to play."
Carl Hagelin, the only other Ranger who has signed to play in Europe, is playing for his home town where he played for two years prior to joining the University of Michigan.
Nash is expected back in the Davos lineup by the end of the week.
