Top Ryan McDonagh News

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Garners helper in win

    McDonagh logged an assist, three hits, two blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Maple Leafs in Game 4.

    McDonagh helped out on a Ross Colton empty-net goal at 17:44 of the third period. The assist was McDonagh's second in as many games. The 32-year-old continues to make an impact with his body, logging 10 hits and 10 blocked shots through four playoff contests, though his scoring contributions will likely come only on an occasional basis.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Defensive beast in postseason

    McDonagh has averaged 20:44 in the first two games of the Round 1 series against Toronto, and he has delivered seven blocked shots, five hits, two shot attempts and one shot on goal.

    McDonagh is a shutdown rock on the Tampa Bay blue line, so his contributions won't appear on the offensive side of the ledger. But his value is clear -- he received three votes for the Conn Smythe Trophy last year as playoff MVP in a pure defensive role. McDonagh is the NHL leader in postseason appearances (162) since his debut in 2010-11 and has remarkably played in the playoffs every season in his career. He will be counted on to shut down Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner as the series turns to two games in the Sunshine State.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Two-point end to season

    McDonagh scored a goal and added an assist in a 6-4 win over the Islanders on Friday.

    Gone are the days of high 30s or low 40s point totals. But it was a nice way to cap a fairly standard McDonagh year at this point in his career. His 26 points were hard fought at even strength (except one assist) and he plays the toughest minutes against the opponent's best players. McDonagh will play a key role on the ice for the Bolts as they make their quest for a three-peat. But he won't give you much from a fantasy perspective.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Playing Sunday

    McDonagh (upper body) will play Sunday against Buffalo, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

    McDonagh has missed the last eight games and will replace Cal Foote in Sunday's lineup. The veteran blueliner has blocked 116 shots and chipped in 21 points through 60 games this season. He was stuck in a seven-game scoreless drought prior to his injury.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Remains unavailable

    McDonagh (upper body) will miss a seventh straight contest Wednesday versus Washington, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    At this point there's no telling when McDonagh, who's collected 21 points through 60 contests this campaign, will be ready to return. Another update on his status should surface once he's given the green light to rejoin the lineup.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Still out Monday

    McDonagh (upper body) will not be in the lineup against the Maple Leafs on Monday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    McDonagh will miss his sixth consecutive contest due to his lingering upper-body issue. Prior to his absence, the veteran defenseman was stuck in a seven-game pointless streak but has gotten back over the 20-point threshold already after missing that mark last year.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Sidelined indefinitely

    McDonagh has been ruled out indefinitely with an upper-body injury, the team announced Saturday.

    While the Bolts didn't provide a specific timeline for McDonagh, fantasy players should probably be expecting him to miss some time. With just 21 points in 60 games this year, the defenseman was far from a top point producer, but his absence could expose the Lightning netminders to increased shots. In his stead, Cal Foote figures to step into the lineup.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Out against Wings

    McDonagh (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup versus Detroit on Saturday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    McDonagh was forced out of Thursday's matchup with the Bruins after blocking a shot and will now be unavailable Saturday. The defenseman is stuck in a seven-game pointless streak dating back to March 8 versus the Jets. With McDonagh unavailable, Cal Foote will step into the lineup for the Bolts.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Leaves after shot block

    McDonagh (undisclosed) left Thursday's game versus the Bruins after a blocked shot, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

    McDonagh was unable to return to the contest. The 32-year-old plays a key role in the Lightning's top four on defense, though he's more of a defensive presence, so fantasy managers aren't as likely to miss him if he's forced to miss games. The Lightning's next game is Saturday versus the Red Wings.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Adds helper Sunday

    McDonagh registered an assist, four blocked shots, three shots on goal and two PIM in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Blackhawks.

    McDonagh had the secondary assist on Cal Foote's first goal of the season at 16:48 of the second period. While far from a regular contributor on offense, McDonagh has supplied four assists in his last 10 games. The veteran defenseman has 20 points, 68 shots on net, 69 hits, 100 blocked shots and a plus-12 rating in 52 outings overall in a top-four role.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Notches assist in win

    McDonagh posted an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Friday's 4-3 win over the Coyotes.

    McDonagh set up Corey Perry's tally at 17:11 of the first period. In his last nine games, McDonagh has put up five assists, a plus-5 rating and 13 blocked shots. The 32-year-old is a solid defensive defenseman, and he's collected a solid 18 points, 53 shots on net, 77 blocked shots, 59 hits and a plus-9 rating through 45 contests overall.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Records pair of assists

    McDonagh notched two assists and a plus-4 rating in Saturday's 7-1 win over the Sharks.

    Both of McDonagh's helpers came in the first period, on goals by Ross Colton and Corey Perry as the Lightning dominated this one from the start. McDonagh has collected six assists in seven appearances in January. The 32-year-old blueliner is up to 16 points, 44 shots on net, 69 blocked shots, 53 hits and a plus-10 rating in 40 contests overall while playing a mostly defensive role in the Lightning's top four.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Supplies helper in win

    McDonagh notched an assist and went plus-3 in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Kings.

    McDonagh set up Mathieu Joseph on the game-winning goal in the third period. The Lightning's defense was understaffed Tuesday, with Jan Rutta (undisclosed) and Erik Cernak (lower body) unable to play, leading to McDonagh playing a season-high 29:18 of ice time. The 32-year-old is up to 14 points, 65 blocked shots, 53 hits, 44 shots on net and a plus-8 rating through 38 appearances while serving as a defense-first option in the Lightning's top four.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Likely to play Saturday

    McDonagh (lower body) took the ice for warmups Saturday, indicating he'll play versus the Stars, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

    McDonagh's absence is set to end at three games. He had three assists in his previous two outings before suffering the lower-body injury. The 32-year-old will likely resume a top-four role, though he's more of a defensive presence in the Lightning's lineup.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Game-time call

    McDonagh (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's matchup with Dallas, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

    McDonagh's status for Saturday night's contest likely won't be determined until the Lightning takes the ice for pregame warmups. If McDonagh's unable to go, Tampa Bay will likely need to recall a defender from its taxi squad to fill in against the Stars.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Not playing Thursday

    McDonagh (lower body) will not play in Thursday's contest versus Vancouver, per Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com.

    McDonagh will miss a third game while recovering from his lower-body injury. His participation in Saturday's contest against Dallas will be a game-time decision. The 32-year-old has averaged 22:38 of ice time and recorded 13 points over 36 games this season. Mikhail Sergachev will continue to see an expanded role until McDonagh recovers.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Game-time call Tuesday

    McDonagh (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's clash with the Sabres, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

    If he plays, McDonagh would be returning from just a one-game absence due to his lower-body issue. While the blueliner is bogged down in a 12-game goal drought, he has picked up three helpers in his previous two outings.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Not ready to play

    McDonagh (lower body) is not expected to play Tuesday versus the Sabres, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

    McDonagh was deemed a game-time decision earlier Tuesday, but he'll need to miss at least one more contest before returning. With McDonagh out, Cal Foote and Zach Bogosian will remain in a third-pairing role, while Mikhail Sergachev slots into the top four. The Lightning's next game is Thursday versus the Canucks.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Out Saturday

    McDonagh (lower body) is not in Saturday's lineup against the Bruins, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    McDonagh has three assists in the last two games, giving him 13 points through 36 games this season. The veteran blueliner will miss his first game of the year Saturday. His next chance to play will be Monday against the Devils.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Three assists in last two games

    McDonagh picked up two assists in a 4-1 win over Calgary on Thursday.

    He has three assists in his last two games. McDonagh has just 13 points in 36 games this season, but that's more than he had in either of his last two years. And now that the talented Nikita Kucherov (lower body) has returned, plenty of Lightning players may see their fantasy value increase.
