Rick Nash Trade Rumors: Forward Still On Trading Block; Jack Johnson 'Excited'

For those NHL fans that thought the trade talks surrounding Columbus Blue Jackets star forward Rick Nash were over because Jeff Carter was shipped to the Los Angeles Kings Thursday. Well, you have the wrong train of thought.

That's because according to Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch, the Blue Jackets are still willing to listen to trade offers for Nash.

Meanwhile, Columbus' newly acquired defensemen Jack Johnson, who was a part of the Carter deal and is a native of Indianapolis and graduate of the University of Michigan, is excited about returning to the Midwest and a fan-friendly organization.

Portzline reported earlier that Johnson will wear jersey number seven.
