The Bruins have waived McKegg, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.
McKegg is a candidate to land on the team's practice squad and given that the coming campaign could feature a good deal of lineup shuffling, the journeyman forward could end up seeing some spot duty for the Bruins down the road.
McKegg signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Bruins worth $700,000 at the NHL level Wednesday.
McKegg appeared in 53 games with the Rangers last season, picking up five goals, four helpers and 17 PIM over that span. The 28-year-old will likely have a reduced role with the Bruins in 2020-21, further dampening his already non-existent fantasy value.
McKegg scored a goal on three shots in a 4-1 win over Los Angeles on Sunday.
McKegg opened the scoring just over two minutes into the game, knocking home a Brett Howden centering feed. McKegg had just one goal in his first 38 games, but has suddenly found the net in two of his last three. The first-year Ranger only averages about 10 minutes of ice time per night and has just six points in 41 games despite the recent mini-burst.
McKegg scored an empty-net goal on his only shot of the game and had two PIM in Wednesday's 5-3 win over Toronto.
McKegg's goal was just his second of the season and his first since Nov. 6, snapping a 32-game goal drought. The fourth-liner has never been a point-producer; his 11 points and six goals last season with Carolina both represented career highs. With just five points in 39 games this season with the Rangers, he can be left on the waiver wire.
McKegg had two shots and two hits in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Canucks.
McKegg has gone five games without a point and has just one goal and three assists in 28 games with the Rangers. The fourth-line center can safely be avoided in the fantasy realm.
McKegg produced an assist and two hits in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Sharks.
McKegg had the secondary helper on Jesper Fast's second-period goal. It's just the third point of the year for McKegg, who has added 26 hits and 12 shots on goal through 18 appearances. He had a career-high 11 points in 21 contests in 2018-19 with the Hurricanes -- the 27-year-old journeyman is not a consistent scoring threat.
McKegg (lower body) will rejoin the lineup for Friday's matchup with Montreal.
McKegg will return to a bottom-six role following his six-game absence, skating with Brett Howden and Brendan Smith on the Rangers' fourth line against the Canadiens. The 27-year-old has picked up two points in 14 games this campaign.
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.
McKegg skated 8:08 in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Devils, finishing with one shot and a minus-1 rating.
McKegg has gotten into both games since the Rangers dealt Vladislav Namestnikov to Ottawa, but he's seen limited ice time in a fourth-line role each time. He had a career-best 11 points in 41 games for the Hurricanes last season, so McKegg's not a difference-maker in the fantasy realm.
McKegg agreed to terms on a contract with the Rangers on Monday.
The terms of this deal have yet to be disclosed, but McKegg is probably going to be playing on a one-year contract. The 27-year-old notched six goals and 11 points in 41 games as a bottom-six forward for the Hurricanes in 2018-19, and will likely play a similar role for New York during the upcoming campaign.
McKegg netted his first goal of the postseason in Friday's 5-2 win over the Islanders in Game 4.
McKegg's first career postseason goal would stand as the game-winner, and it was also enough to chase Robin Lehner out of the Islanders' crease. The fourth-liner hadn't contributed any offense prior to the goal Friday, and it's unlikely he'll have a fantasy impact in the Eastern Conference finals.
McKegg skated just 9:26 in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Flyers. He failed to crack the scoresheet for the 11th consecutive game, giving him just 11 points in 38 games this season.
McKegg was averaging more than 13 minutes a game back in January shortly after his callup from AHL Charlotte, but since then has seen his ice time decline to under 10 minutes per game most nights. This has been due partly to the arrival of Nino Niederreiter in January, along with the return of Jordan Staal from IR in late February. Bottom line, there simply aren't enough minutes to go around for a fourth liner like McKegg, making him almost irrelevant from a fantasy perspective.
McKegg was the only Hurricane to find twine in an 8-1 loss to the Jets on Friday.
McKegg's goal came midway through the third period, cutting the deficit to 5-1 before the Jets poured some more offense on late. McKegg has a career-high 11 points in 27 games this season, but the fourth-liner doesn't hold much fantasy appeal averaging 11:30 of ice time.
McKegg scored his fifth goal of the season in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Panthers.
The 26-year-old McKegg may be playing for his fifth team in as many seasons, but he may have found himself a permanent home in Raleigh given his solid contributions this year (10 points in 25 games). Unfortunately, he continues to average about 11 minutes a game on the Canes' fourth line, limiting his fantasy value to ultra-deep formats only.
McKegg scored his ninth point of the season with an assist in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Stars.
McKegg now has four goals and five helpers in 23 games this season. He plays a limited offensive role for the Canes, routinely seeing fewer than 10 minutes a game on the team's fourth line. This gives him fantasy value in ultra-deep formats only.
McKegg earned a goal and a helper in Wednesday's 5-2 victory over Vancouver.
Since being called up from the minors, McKegg has tallied six points in 11 contests, all of which have come in multi-point efforts. The center's strong run of performances could keep him on the 23-man roster even once Jordan Staal (upper body) is cleared to return.
