Rangers' McDonagh Won't Need Surgery

News: Ryan McDonagh's broken right foot will not require surgery, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: The news is encouraging, as it suggests that Ryan McDonagh will in fact be ready for the Rangers' training camp in September. McDonagh had a solid 2014-15 campaign, registering eight goals and 25 assists for a total of 33 points in 71 games.

Rangers' McDonagh In Walking Boot And On Crutches

News: Ryan McDonagh is currently donning a walking boot and using crutches due to the broken foot he suffered in the Eastern Conference Final against Tampa Bay, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: He'll remain in a walking boot and on crutches for four weeks, at which point his broken foot will be re-evaluated. While a broken foot is certainly nothing to scoff at, if all goes well with the healing process, Ryan McDonagh should be ready for the Rangers' training camp in September.

Rangers' McDonagh Played Through Broken Foot

News: Coach Alain Vigneault acknowledged after the Rangers' Game 7 loss to the Lightning that Ryan McDonagh played the final couple games of the series with a broken right foot.
Analysis: It likely would have taken nothing less than a broken foot for the Rangers captain not to be on the ice in the Eastern Conference Finals, but he clearly wasn't himself in the last three games. After tallying a goal and assist in Game 4, Ryan McDonagh failed to get on the scoresheet and mustered only one shot on goal in Games 5 through 7. Additionally, he skated fewer than 22 minutes in each of the last three contests, well below his postseason average of 23:51 TOI.

Rangers' McDonagh Adds Goal, Assist In Loss

News: Ryan McDonagh registered a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 6-5 OT loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: The Rangers captain found the score sheet for the fourth time in the last four games, but struggled overall on the night, and finished with a minus-2 rating. The Rangers will need Ryan McDonagh to play his best hockey if they want to avoid heading back to New York facing a 3-1 series deficit.

Rangers' McDonagh Practicing Tuesday

News: Ryan McDonagh (undisclosed) is on the ice for practice Tuesday, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh took a hard hit from Alex Ovechkin in Game 6, but there was never much doubt that he'd be on the ice for Game 7, and the fact that he's practicing Tuesday all but ensures he'll be ready to go Wednesday night.

Rangers' McDonagh Expected To Play In Game 7

News: Ryan McDonagh, who took a hard hit from Alexander Ovechkin in Game 6, is expected to play in Wednesday's Game 7, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: It would take a lot to keep Ryan McDonagh or any player form missing a playoff game - let alone Game 7 - so it shouldn't be surprising that he'll likely play. The team should provide an official update before the game, but all signs at this point seem to indicate that he'll be on the ice.

Rangers' McDonagh Scores Game 5 Overtime Winner

News: Ryan McDonagh was the hero Friday, scoring in overtime to propel the Rangers to a Game 5 win over the Capitals.
Analysis: That's the second game-winning goal of the playoffs for Ryan McDonagh, who has managed five points in 10 postseason games. While the goal Friday was his first point of the second round, the 25-year-old captain has been logging heavy minutes and has fired nine shots on goal in his last four games. If The Rangers hope to win Game 6 and force a Game 7 in New York, McDonagh will need to play a key role.

Rangers' McDonagh Staying Hot In Playoffs

News: Ryan McDonagh collected an assist, two hits and five blocked shots in Wednesday's Game 4 victory over the Penguins.
Analysis: The season has largely been a disappointing one for Ryan McDonagh, but he's beginning to turn things on right when the Rangers need him most. He's recorded points in three of the series' four games, and has two goals and nine assists over his last 12 games dated back to March 29.

Rangers' McDonagh Nets Game 1 Winner

News: Ryan McDonagh scored a first-period power-play goal that held up as the game-winner and went plus-1 with four shots, three blocks and a pair of hits in Thursday's Game 1 victory over Pittsburgh.
Analysis: The Rangers' captain fell back offensively a bit this year, but he finished the season with nine points in the final nine games, and he's carried that heat forward into the first game of the playoffs. If there was ever a time to get hot, this is it.

Rangers' McDonagh Heating Up As Season Ends

News: Ryan McDonagh tallied a power-play goal and put five shots on net in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Devils.
Analysis: Though his production has waned for much of the season, Ryan McDonagh certainly seems to be heating up at the right time for fantasy owners. The goal Tuesday gives him seven points over his last six games, during which he's compiled a plus-5 rating. Those contending for the championship in their season-long leagues should continue to keep McDonagh active over the Rangers' final two games.

Rangers' McDonagh Helps Out In Win

News: Ryan McDonagh picked up a power-play assist in the first period, then helped out on J.T. Miller's game-winner in the third.
Analysis: The Rangers' captain is on a little late-season run here, with four assists in the last three games. He's not to going to avoid having this campaign labeled as a disappointment -- in terms of stats, at least -- but Ryan McDonagh has undeniable offensive ability, so it's hard to ignore him when he starts showing signs like this.

Rangers' McDonagh Chips In Assist In Loss

News: Ryan McDonagh registered an assist in Sunday's loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh's false start to the season due to the separated shoulder he suffered in November seems to have compromised his production, even since his return from the injury. His 26 points in 64 contests translates to a .40 per-game average, which amounts to a fairly noticeable drop from his .55 mark from a season ago. McDonagh won't turn 26 until June, and with a healthy offseason, should make for a strong bounce-back candidate in 2015-16.

McDonagh, Rangers Set Record In Win

News: Ryan McDonagh was a plus-1 with three shots on goal in Sunday's win over Florida.
Analysis: More impressive was Ryan McDonagh season-high six blocked shots, part of a team effort that resulted in 36 blocked shots, the most the organization has put up since 2005-06 campaign. No, he hasn't had the consistent offensive spark (24 points in 57 games) that most owners were expecting, but taking on the pressure of the team captaincy was bound to have an impact. Whether that impact is long-term remains to be seen, but we highly doubt management would change a thing right now.

Rangers' McDonagh Pots Two In Win

News: Ryan McDonagh potted two goals in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Islanders.
Analysis: It was the first two-goal game of Ryan McDonagh's career as he had an unusually offensively minded outing as he also rifled off a season-high six shots on goal. The captain is getting on the scoresheet with some consistency lately as he's now tallied seven points in his last nine to bring him to 22 points on the season.

Rangers' McDonath Tallies Two Points In Win

News: Ryan McDonagh picked up an assist and an empty-net power-play goal Thursday against the Avalanche.
Analysis: The empty-netter was actually a nice one, as he picked off a pass in the neutral zone and fired it home from long distance. Ryan McDonagh's offensive resurgence continues, as he's tallied a more-than-respectable five points in the last seven games.

Rangers' McDonagh Snaps Goal-Scoring Drought

News: Ryan McDonagh scored an early-third-period goal in Saturday's loss to Nashville.
Analysis: It was his first score in 15 games, and it certainly bodes well for fantasy owners who have remained patient with the talented blueliner. Despite a minus-3 rating over his last seven contests, the Rangers' 25-year-old captain is on something of a warming trend, having posted a goal and three assists over that same span. Ryan McDonagh has a modest 18 points in 39 games, but should pick things up down the stretch.

Rangers' McDonagh Turning Things Around?

News: Ryan McDonagh logged a power-play assist in Monday's 6-3 victory over the Panthers.
Analysis: No one is happier to see the month of February as much as Ryan McDonagh, who seems to be bouncing back from his seven point-scoring drought quite nicely. With assists in consecutive games and three points in his last five contests we recommend starting the 25-year-old with confidence until he hits another rough patch. While he's unlikely to match last year's career-high of 43 points, McDonagh (plus-10) has managed a respectable 17 points in 34 games this season.

Points Drying Up For Rangers' McDonagh

News: Ryan McDonagh recorded an assist in Tuesday's win over the Senators, marking his first point since Jan. 3.
Analysis: The blueliner had gone seven games without a tally in either scoring column. It's the second time this season that Ryan McDonagh had a scoring drought of at least six games, which -- combined with a four-week absence due to a shoulder injury -- has dampened his fantasy appeal this season. He still sports a commendable plus-12 rating, but fantasy owners surely expected more than three goals and 15 points at this juncture.

Rangers' McDonagh Adds Goal, Assist In Win

News: Ryan McDonagh picked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Panthers.
Analysis: The Rangers captain is starting to heat up after missing time earlier in the season with a shoulder injury, and has posted four points in his last five games.

Rangers' McDonagh Scores Game-Winner Sunday

News: Ryan McDonagh's first-period goal was the only one scored in Sunday's win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: After opening the season with no points in his first six games, Ryan McDonagh has gotten on track with two goals and seven points in his past 11 games. Aside from that recent slump at the beginning of the season, McDonagh has been very consistent, register a plus-8 rating and never going more than two games without recording a point. Averaging 23:26 of ice time and playing on the power play, McDonagh is a solid fantasy option in almost all formats.

McDonagh Powers Rangers To Win Over Canucks

News: Ryan McDonagh earned first star honors in Saturday's win over Vancouver, scoring his first goal of the season, registering four shots on goal, and recording a plus-4 rating.
Analysis: After going pointless in his first six games, Ryan McDonagh has hit his stride, recording five points in six games since returning from a shoulder injury. Logging heavy minutes on a Rangers' team that has won two straight games, McDonagh is on track for a second consecutive 40-point season. He's a great fantasy option on the blueline and should be in your lineup every night New York is in action.

Rangers' McDonagh: Two Points In Two Games Back

News: Ryan McDonagh has tallied an assist in both of his games since returning from a separated shoulder.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh skated 22:12 and 24:46, respectively, in dominant wins over the Flyers on Friday and Saturday. Activate the blueliner if you haven't already.

Rangers Activate McDonagh

News: Coach Alain Vigneault confirmed that Ryan McDonagh (shoulder) will play Friday against the Flyers.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh missed nearly four weeks with the shoulder injury. He'll reunite with Dan Girardi on the Rangers' top pairing, giving the defense an added scoring punch. The Rangers went 4-4-3 over the 11 games the captain missed.

Rangers' McDonagh Likely To Play Friday

News: Ryan McDonagh (shoulder) appears likely to return from IR to play Friday against the Flyers, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Out since Nov. 1 with a separated shoulder, Ryan McDonagh has been practicing since Tuesday and was paired up with regular partner Dan Girardi at Thursday's session, suggesting he'll be ready to go Friday. The Rangers won't hold a morning skate Friday due to the 1:00 p.m. ET puck drop, so McDonagh's return to lineup likely wouldn't be announced until pregame warmups.

Rangers' McDonagh Targeting Friday

News: Ryan McDonagh (shoulder) is aiming to return to the lineup Friday versus the Rangers, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh will skate Wednesday and practice Thursday before the team decides on his status for Friday's game. Coach Alain Vigneault noted that team trainers wouldn't allow McDonagh to return to the lineup until he was deemed 100 percent healthy, so it's far from a given that he'll give clearance to play over the weekend.
