McKegg (lower body) will not be in the lineup for Monday's game against Vegas, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports. McKegg has now missed the last five games with his lower-body injury. There's no timetable for the 27-year-old's return so he'll still be considered day-to-day.
McKegg (lower body) isn't in the projected lineup for Wednesday's clash with Carolina, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports. McKegg will miss a second straight game Wednesday and the Rangers have yet to release any details regarding a potential timetable for his return. Either way, the 27-year-old journeyman has only picked up two points in 14 games this campaign and isn't a viable fantasy option.
McKegg (lower body) won't suit up for Monday's game against the Wild. McKegg exited Saturday's win over the Canadiens, and it will linger enough to keep him out of this contest. The Rangers will be without Mike Zibanejad (upper body) as well, so the team recalled Greg McKegg from AHL Hartford to add depth up the middle.
McKegg (lower body) will not return to Saturday's game, Colin Stephenson reports. McKegg played 4:32 before leaving with a lower-body injury. He was minus-1 at the time of his departure, and McKegg will now look to recover in time to suit up Monday versus the Wild.
McKegg scored a short-handed goal, his first tally of the season, in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Rangers. McKegg followed his own rebound and jumped on a fortunate bounce right in front of the Detroit net to give the Rangers a 4-1 lead midway through the third period. It was the first goal in six games this season for McKegg and just the second shorty of his NHL career. The 27-year-old logged only about 10 minutes of playing time Wednesday, a season high, and will be limited to a third- or fourth-line role when he does draw into the lineup.
