Rick Nash skated in 1,060 regular-season games during his 15-year NHL career, all but 11 of which were spent in either a Columbus Blue Jackets or New York Rangers uniform.

Nash officially announced his retirement from professional hockey Friday and on Sunday he’ll have a chance to give both of his former fan bases a proper goodbye.

The Blue Jackets announced the six-time all-star will take part in a ceremonial puck-drop prior to the Sunday evening clash at Nationwide Arena in Columbus.

The 2002 first-overall pick of the Blue Jackets finished his career with 437 goals and 805 points, sharing the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy with Ilya Kovalchuk and Jarome Iginla in 2004, and winning two Olympic gold medals while representing Team Canada.
