Nick was drafted by the San Jose Sharks in the 6th round (173rd overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

His rights were traded to the Ducks with goaltender Timo Pielmeier in exchange for Travis Moen and Kent Huskins on March 4, 2009.

On March 21, 2010, Nick signed a two-year entry-level contract with the Ducks. After signing with the Ducks, he immediately joined the team making his NHL debut on March 26, 2010 in a game versus the Edmonton Oilers.

He scored his first NHL goal in Anaheim's next game, three nights later, against the Dallas Stars, the goal was assisted by Teemu Selanne.

Nick finished the year playing in 9 games and registering 1 goal and 1 assist for 2 points and 6 PIMs.

On June 27, 2014 after a breakout season in 2013–14 in which he scored 22 goals and 27 assists (49 points), Nick was traded to the Vancouver Canucks with defenseman Luca Sbisa and a first-and third-round pick in 2014 in exchange for Ryan Kesler and a third-round pick in 2015.

In his first season with the Canucks, he appeared in 75 games, scoring 15 goals along with 24 assists. Nick scored a goal and had two assists during Vancouver's first round loss to the Calgary Flames in the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
