That’ll be pretty surreal to experience that firsthand." McDonagh is having a great season with six goals, 24 points, and a plus-10 rating in 49 contests.

Ryan McDonagh was a minus-four on Friday.

It was not one of McDonagh's better efforts as he was on the ice for five of Edmonton's goals. He has four goals and 14 points in 30 games and is still a plus-six but yesterday's performance did not help his fantasy value.

Ryan McDonagh scored a goal in the Rangers' 3-0 victory over Carolina Tuesday night.

It was McDonagh's first goal in 15 games this season. He's gotten off to a slow start offensively in 2015-16 as he has just four points. We believe he'll bounce back though and we may have already seen the early stages of that.

Ryan McDonagh picked up a pair of helpers in Friday's 2-1 win over Colorado.

It's been a real tough start ot he season for McDonagh, who was looking to build of a very successful season in 2014-15. He also contributed a hit and a trio of blocks, bringing his totals up to three assists and points with 20 hits and blocks.

Coach Alain Vigneault has split up his defense pairing of Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi.

It happened at practice Saturday as McDonagh found himself playing alongside Kevin Klein while Girardi was matched with Keith Yandle. McDonagh has yet to get a point this season after 33 points in 2014-15 and 43 the year before that. He should be a 4-5 defenseman at this stage in standard leagues.

Ryan McDonagh is still without a point this season.

The defenseman looked to be a big offensive stud in 2013-14 when he had 14 goals and 43 points in 77 games but had only 33 points last season and is struggling this year in the early going. If he is on your roster, it might be a good time to reserve him.

Ryan McDonagh was a plus-four on Friday.

McDonagh was on the ice for all four Rangers goals as they upended the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-2. McDonagh was held pointless but did contribute nicely to your fantasy squad if you play the plus/minus category. Look for a 35-40 point season from the defenseman.

Defenseman Ryan McDonagh picked up two assists as the New York Rangers edged the Boston Bruins 3-2 in exhibition action Wednesday night.

McDonagh, who is coming off a broken foot, grabbed assists on goals in the second period by Viktor Stalberg and J.T. Miller. Rick Nash, who recorded a game-high eight shots on net, notched what proved to be the game winner on a power-play goal at 5.21 of the third period. Brett Connolly scored both Boston goals and Ryan Spooner assisted on both. Henrik Lundqvist was strong in the New York net, making 39 saves. New York finished its preseason schedule with a 4-1-1 record. Jonas Gustavsson made 24 saves for the Bruins, who will conclude their exhibition season with a game against Washington Friday night.

Ryan McDonagh will go into training camp with no restrictions on his previously broken foot.

"It's good. It feels pretty much normal now," McDonagh said Monday. "I'm not even really thinking about (the foot) on a daily basis, so it's nice. It doesn't get sore after skates and I'm able to do everything I want to do in the weight room training wise, so hopefully in that way it's in the past now." He has been on the ice for informal workouts and hasn't had any problems. McDonagh feels fortunate to heal naturally without the need of surgery and he's ready for training camp.

Ryan McDonagh has recovered nicely from a broken right foot.

"It's safe to say it's getting better every day and feeling pretty much 100 percent at this point now," said McDonagh, who has been skating without issue and is training normally. "We said June 1 was the starting date, so we're more than two-and-a-half months in. I'm back skating on the ice, doing leg strength stuff in the weight room, running and jumping. I'm really trying to put it all behind me now and gear up here for the start of training camp." About a month ago, McDonagh was wearing a walking boot that had been on for six weeks. He sustained the injury in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Tampa Bay Lightning, but he didn't require surgery. McDonagh will be back in New York on Sept. 1 for informal workouts.
