In his first full Junior A season in the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) with the Salmon Arm Silverbacks in 2006–07, Nash scored 84 points in 55 games to finish as the Silverbacks' top scorer, rookie of the year and the team's most valuable player (MVP). Although he was drafted 21st overall by the Edmonton Oilers at the end of the season at the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, he opted against immediately signing with the team.

Instead, he went on to play college ice hockey at Cornell University of the NCAA's ECAC conference, where he was a linemate of current Toronto Maple Leafs' forward Colin Greening. As was the case at Salmon Arm, Nash played at Cornell with his older brother Brendon, a defenceman. In his freshman year with the Big Red, Nash was selected as the Cornell University Hockey Rookie of the Year and to the 2007–08 College Hockey News All-Rookie Team.

On June 26, 2010, the Oilers traded Nash's rights to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for the 46th pick (Martin Marinčin) at the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. Nearly one month later, on July 19, Nash signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Hurricanes, foregoing his final year of eligibility at Cornell. On December 23, 2011, Nash recorded his first career NHL point on an assist on Andreas Nödl's goal against the Ottawa Senators, and he later scored his first career NHL goal against the Florida Panthers on March 2, 2013.

After 6 seasons within the Hurricanes organization, Nash left as a free agent to sign a two-year contract with the Boston Bruins on July 1, 2016.

Personal life

Riley has a brother, Brendon, who played for the Hartford Wolf Pack in the AHL, and two sisters.
