McDonagh picked up an assist, three blocked shots and two hits in Friday's 7-1 win over the Jets. McDonagh won a puck battle and dished to Carter Verhaeghe for the tally at 11:10 of the second period. Through 42 games, McDonagh has 12 points, 84 blocked shots, 43 shots on goal and 29 hits. The 30-year-old defenseman is on pace for his worst offensive season in a full-length campaign.
McDonagh (upper body) was minus-1 with one shot and one block Thursday in a 3-2 loss to the Wild. McDonagh was in the lineup for the first time after missing seven games and he was able to log nearly 19 minutes of ice time, including a team-high 4:10 on the penalty kill. The 30-year-old has just one goal and 11 points in 41 games this season, disappointing production after his 46-point campaign in 2018-19.
McDonagh (upper body) is expected to return to the lineup for Thursday's matchup with Minnesota, Diana C. Nearhos of the Tampa Bay Times reports. McDonagh's return will bolster the Lightning's strength on the back end, but it won't affect many fantasy lineups, as he's only collected a dissapointing 11 points through 40 games this campaign. The 30-year-old American is expected to skate with Erik Cernak on Tampa Bay's bottom pairing against the Wild.
McDonagh (upper body) won't play Tuesday against L.A., but he's hoping he'll be ready to return at some point during Tampa Bay's upcoming two-game road trip, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports. McDonagh will miss a sixth straight game Tuesday, but he could be ready to rejoin the lineup as soon as Thursday against Minnesota. Another update on 30-year-old blueliner, who's picked up 11 points in 40 games this campaign, should surface prior to that contest.
McDonagh (upper body) will not be with the Lightning for their upcoming two-game road trip, Caley Chelios of the Lightning's official site reports. McDonagh already was on the shelf for Tampa's previous three contests and now is set to miss two more. According to the team, the blueliner will be upgraded to day-to-day heading into Tuesday's matchup with Los Angeles. Until then, Jan Rutta and Luke Schenn figure to continue competing for a spot in the lineup.
