McQuaid (lower body) was placed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site. Considering McQuaid has already missed the Rangers' last four outings, it's all but guaranteed the club used a retroactive designation, which would make him eligible to be activated as soon as possible. Even if he was designated for IR as of Monday, the blueliner was recently downgraded to week-to-week, which will probably keep him sidelined until Nov. 12 against the Canucks at the earliest anyway.
McQuaid (lower body) will not play Sunday against Buffalo and is now considered "week-to-week," Rick Carpiniello of The Athletic reports. McQuaid has missed the last three games, last suiting up on Oct. 25 against Chicago. He has just two points in eight games in his first season as a Ranger and should be ignored in most fantasy formats, especially with an extended absence expected.
McQuaid (lower body) won't play Thursday against Anaheim. McQuaid will miss a third straight contest due to a lower-body injury. His continued absence will test the Rangers' depth at defense, but it shouldn't impact many fantasy lineups, as the hard-nosed blueliner lacks the offensive upside necessary to be considered a viable option in most formats.
McQuaid (lower body) isn't in the lineup Tuesday versus the Sharks. McQuaid could still be dealing with a lower-body injury, but there's a chance he's a healthy scratch. His next chance to play is Thursday versus the Ducks.
McQuaid (lower body) could return Tuesday for a road game against the Sharks, or he may come back Thursday to cap off the west coast trip versus the Ducks in Anaheim, Dan Greenspan of NHL.com reports. McQuaid won't play Sunday against the Kings, but the industrious blueliner should join the team for game action this coming week. The ex-Bruin has two assists representing his point total through his first eight games with the Blueshirts.
