  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Chips in with helper in win

    McDonagh logged an assist in Monday's 2-1 win over the Flames.

    McDonagh set up a Roman Josi tally in the first period. With three points through eight games in January, McDonagh has already matched his most points in a month this season. The 33-year-old blueliner is at one goal, 10 helpers, 34 shots on net, 75 blocked shots and a plus-10 rating through 36 contests overall.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: First goal, game-winner

    McDonagh scored the game-winning goal in Friday's 3-2 victory over the Capitals.

    The veteran blueliner came into the game having not scored since May 10 of last season, a stretch of 48 straight games, but he did his best Alex Ovechkin impression against Washington. McDonagh took a slick pass from Ryan Johansen and beat the Caps defenders before cutting to his backhand and sliding the puck past a sprawling Charlie Lindgren with just over three minutes left in the third period to break a 2-2 tie. McDonagh has just nine points through 31 games on the season, but he's still provided some value for Nashville with 70 blocked shots and a plus-11 rating.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Back in action Wednesday

    McDonagh (upper body) will return to the lineup versus the Blackhawks on Wednesday, Robby Stanley of reports.

    McDonagh has been sidelined since Dec. 2 against the Islanders due to his upper-body problem, a stretch of seven games on injured reserve. Considering the defenseman is currently goalless in 23 outings to open the season, his return is unlikely to impact the majority of fantasy players.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Nearing return

    McDonagh (upper body) is getting close to being ready to return to the lineup, Emma Lingan of the Predators' official site reports.

    McDonagh took to the ice with his teammates Monday, sporting a full cage. Coach John Hynes said after the session that the Predators defenseman's return is "imminent." McDonagh, who last played Dec. 2, was originally slated to be out for 2-4 weeks.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Out 2-4 weeks

    McDonagh (upper body) is expected to miss 2-4 weeks. He was placed on injured reserve Monday.

    In a corresponding move, the Predators brought up blueliner Jordan Gross on Monday. McDonagh was struck in the face by the puck this past Friday versus the Islanders. He has six assists, 20 shots on goal, 48 blocks and 19 hits in 23 games this season.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Hands out assist

    McDonagh notched an assist, two shots on goal, two blocked shots and two PIM in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Avalanche.

    McDonagh set up Eeli Tolvanen's first-period tally. While McDonagh has two assists in his last four games, he hasn't been a big contributor on offense this season. The 33-year-old blueliner has five helpers, 16 shots on net, 31 blocked shots, 14 hits and an even plus-minus rating as a steady defensive presence through 14 contests.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Not an offensive contributor

    McDonagh was held off the scoresheet for the sixth time in the past seven games Saturday against the Canucks.

    McDonagh recorded 26 points in 71 games for the Lightning last season. Now with four points in his first 12 outings as a Predator, he is currently on pace to put up similar numbers this year. His career-high 46 point season was back in 2018-19, but those days are clearly in the past for the 33-year-old blueliner. Manage your expectations accordingly.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Notches assist

    McDonagh logged an assist and blocked four shots in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Kings.

    McDonagh is up to three assists in five games, starting the year in fine form for the Predators. He's played over 21 minutes in four of those contests, though that's still down from the 22:27 of ice time per game he averaged with the Lightning last year. McDonagh has added 11 blocked shots, four hits and three shots on net. While the early offense is nice, it's his defensive contributions that can be relied upon consistently.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Garners helper in team debut

    McDonagh logged an assist, four blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.

    McDonagh was traded from the Lightning to the Predators in July as part of Tampa's salary shedding. One game in, it looks like a solid move for Nashville, as it now has another defensive-minded blueliner capable of absorbing significant minutes. McDonagh posted 21:31 of ice time Friday, but that could go up after he averaged 22:27 per game with the Lightning last year. He also chipped in 26 points in 71 contests last season, though offense is often a secondary factor for the 33-year-old at this point in his career.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Traded to Predators

    McDonagh was traded to the Predators from the Lightning on Sunday in exchange for Philippe Myers and Grant Mismash.

    McDonagh is heading to Nashville after being with the Lightning since 2018. The defensemen scored 20 goals and 99 points with a plus-74 rating in 267 total regular-season games for Tampa Bay, where he was a two-time Stanley Cup champion.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Hampered by finger injury

    McDonagh has been dealing with what general manager Julian Brisebois described as a "mangled" finger but should make a full recovery, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports Tuesday.

    McDonagh managed just five points in 23 postseason contests and was held to just one assist in the Stanley Cup Finals. At this point in his career, the 33-year-old McDonagh probably shouldn't be expected to put up 40-plus points but should still offer decent mid-range fantasy value with his ceiling likely in the 25-30 range.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Adds helper in loss

    McDonagh recorded an assist, two shots on goal, four hits and four blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Avalanche in Game 1.

    McDonagh helped out on an Ondrej Palat goal in the second period. The assist snapped a seven-game point drought for McDonagh, who continues to focus on his defensive assignments rather than scoring production. The 33-year-old blueliner has five points, 54 blocked shots, 31 hits, 25 shots on net, 10 PIM and a plus-3 rating in 18 playoff games while seeing top-four usage.

  • Lightning's Ryan McDonagh: Dash of offense with heavy minutes

    McDonagh delivered an assist in Sunday's 5-1 win over Florida in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Second Round.

    He got the helper when Corey Perry redirected McDonagh's shot past Sergei Bobrovsky at 13:21 of the first period to open the scoring. McDonagh has been a shutdown beast this postseason and finished plus-4 with three blocked shots and two hits in a team high 23:21. He has four points (one goal, three assists), eight PIM and 12 shots on goal in 10 postseason games. The Lightning lead the Panthers 3-0 heading into Monday's Game 4.

  • 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.
