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.

News: Ryan McDonagh has tallied an assist in both of his games since returning from a separated shoulder.

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.

Rangers' McDonagh Not Returning Wednesday

News: Despite getting in a full practice Tuesday, Ryan McDonagh (shoulder) doesn't expect to play Wednesday versus the Lightning, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh was a full participant in practice and was encouraged by how the skate went, but seemed to acknowledge that he needs some additional time to get his conditioning back up to snuff. The captain has been out for over three weeks with the separated shoulder, but may be ready to reenter the lineup Friday against the Flyers.

News: Ryan McDonagh practiced Tuesday for the first time since injuring his shoulder Nov. 1.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh participated in all drills and was able to take contact, so it appears he is nearly back at 100 percent. He may need a few practice sessions to get into playing shape, but he is on the verge of returning to action.

Rangers' McDonagh Will Skate Soon

News: Ryan McDonagh (shoulder) is expected to start skating this week, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh's shoulder won't inhibit his ability to skate too much, so he'll return to the ice to work on his conditioning. Keep an eye out for him to be cleared for contact, since that will be a better indication that he's nearing a return.

New York has not yet announced a timetable for how much time McDonagh might miss. He will be re-evaluated Sunday.

Rangers' McDonagh Notches First Points

Analysis: After being minted the new captain of the Blueshirts prior to the start of the year, Ryan McDonagh opened quietly, posting six straight scoreless games, but his heavy power-play usage finally paid off on Tuesday. After last season's 43-point campaign, big things are expected of McDonagh, who could quite reasonably challenge for 50 points as New York's top blueliner.

McDonagh Active In Rangers' Loss

News: Ryan McDonagh led all skaters with 42:12 of ice time in Friday's Game 5 loss to the Kings, notching a power-play assist on the team's first goal.
Analysis: Ryan McDonagh has emerged from this postseason as one of the league's rising stars among the cresting trend of two-way defenders, recording 17 points in the playoffs and seemingly never leaving the ice. This playoff run is on the heels of a 43-point regular season that saw him grab 14 goals under new coach Alain Vigneault. McDonagh will be a trendy pick in next fall's drafts. There will be two ways to approach this: either this will be the last time you'll be able to get him a slight discount or you will have to overpay because of his exposure this past season due to the playoffs and his strong play for Team USA in the Winter Olympics. Either way, he'll be a safe pick with his best years ahead of him.
