Top Ryan McDonagh News

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Dishes two assists in win

    McDonagh notched two assists and added two hits in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Golden Knights.

    McDonagh has a goal and five helpers over his last six games, a far better stretch compared to the preceding 24 contests in which he had just two helpers. The defenseman isn't known to put up steady offense, so his recent burst has been a pleasant surprise. McDonagh is up to 17 points, 62 shots on net, 86 blocked shots and a plus-4 rating through 49 outings as a top-four fixture for the Predators.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Completes comeback in overtime

    McDonagh scored a goal on four shots and added a power-play assist in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Coyotes.

    McDonagh set up a Thomas Novak tally to spark the third-period comeback, and the forward returned the favor on McDonagh's game-winner at 1:36 of overtime. This was the 34-year-old defenseman's third multi-point effort of the campaign. He's been solid in a primarily defensive role with 14 points through 45 outings, though he's earned four power-play points, his most since the 2017-18 campaign. McDonagh has added 81 blocked shots, 58 shots on net and a plus-4 rating.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Picks up power-play assist

    McDonagh logged a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Islanders.

    McDonagh entered Saturday in an eight-game slump before he set up a Luke Evangelista equalizer in the third period. The 34-year-old McDonagh doesn't have to score to provide value -- he plays heavy defensive minutes for a team that has a mix of veterans and youth on the blue line. The 34-year-old is up to 11 points (three on the power play), 45 shots on net, 60 blocked shots and a plus-6 rating through 36 appearances this season.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Adds two points in win

    McDonagh tallied a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-1 victory over Tampa Bay.

    McDonagh picked up an assist on Juuso Parssinen's power-play tally in the first period before extending Nashville's lead to 3-1 in the second, sliding a backhander by Jonas Johansson. The 34-year-old McDonagh has been productive offensively of late, posting seven points (a goal and six assists) in nine games since his return from a lower-body injury. While his scoring run has been a nice bonus, McDonagh is primarily relied on for his defensive presence -- he now has a goal and eight assists through 19 games this season with a plus-6 rating, 13 hits and 36 blocked shots while averaging 20:23 of ice time on the Predators' top pairing.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Generates assist in win

    McDonagh registered an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Jets.

    McDonagh has four helpers over three games since he returned from a lower-body injury that cost him seven contests. The defenseman's best offensive days are behind him, but he can still chip in now and then. He's up to six helpers, 10 shots on net, 31 blocked shots and a plus-4 rating through 13 appearances, playing a defensive role in the Predators' top four.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Returns with two helpers

    McDonagh was good for two assists in Wednesday's 4-2 win against the Flames.

    McDonagh missed nearly three weeks due to a lower-body injury, but he looked just fine in this victory. The veteran rearguard ended up with a plus-2 rating, a shot on goal, three blocked shots and a hit in 21:23 of ice time across 26 shifts. He had just two assists in his first 10 games. He'll look to stay hot in Friday's road game against the Blues.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Good to play Wednesday

    McDonagh (lower body) is expected to play Wednesday versus Calgary, per Ann Kimmel of The Hockey News.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Ruled out versus Avs

    McDonagh (lower body) will not be in action versus Colorado on Monday, Emma Lingan of the Predators' official site reports.

    McDonagh will be shelved for his seventh consecutive contest due to his lingering lower-body issue. Before suffering his lower-body injury, the Minnesota native was mired in an eight-game scoring drought and had put just two shots on net over that stretch. In his stead, Spencer Stastney figures to continue playing on the third pairing.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Unavailable vs. Winnipeg

    McDonagh (lower body) will miss Thursday's game against Winnipeg, per Emma Lingan of the Predators' official site.

He has two assists, six shots, seven hits and 25 blocks in 10 contests this season. When he's healthy, McDonagh is likely to serve in a top-four role, though he might not have a spot on the power play.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Notches helper Thursday

    McDonagh recorded an assist, three blocked shots, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Kraken.

    McDonagh helped out on Gustav Nyquist's goal in the middle of the third period. In addition to his second helper of the season, McDonagh played his usual role as a top-four defenseman and penalty killer, making several key blocks on a Kraken power play in the final frame. The 34-year-old had a decent 20 points to go with 165 blocked shots in 71 outings last season, and he's already notched five blocks and a plus-3 rating through two contests in 2023-24.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Records two points in return

    McDonagh (upper body) supplied a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 7-3 victory over Buffalo.

    McDonagh logged 17:08 of ice time after missing the previous four games because of the injury. He entered the contest averaging 21:14 in 2022-23, but perhaps coach John Hynes wanted to ease him back into the lineup. McDonagh has two goals and 17 points in 58 appearances this season.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Ready to rock

    McDonagh (upper body) will be back in the lineup Tuesday versus Buffalo, Heather Engel of NHL.com reports.

    McDonagh, who has missed the past four games, has accounted for 15 points, 57 shots on goal, 53 hits and 126 blocks in 57 appearances this season. The Predators will be without Roman Josi (upper body) again, so McDonagh could see an increase in responsibilities and playing time.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Could return Tuesday

    McDonagh (upper body) will be reevaluated prior to puck drop against the Sabres on Tuesday, Robby Stanley of 102.5 The Game reports.

    McDonagh looks poised to return following a four-game stint on the shelf due to his upper-body issue. The veteran blueliner is not exactly an offensive powerhouse considering he is currently stuck in a 26-game goal drought during which he recorded just six assists. Still, in formats that value defensive stats like hits and blocks, McDonagh could offer decent mid-range fantasy value.

  • Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Not playing Sunday
