Ryan McDonagh welcomed his his new daughter, Falan Erin, into the world late Monday.

He will be in the lineup Wednesday night for the first time since her birth. Coach Alain Vigneault has been thoroughly satisfied with McDonagh's play so far this season. "He feels strong, played 30 minutes one game and 27 in another," said the Rangers bench boss. "He's skating away from the other team's forecheck, finding the open lanes and open personnel, and any time he's had the opportunity to support the attack, he jumps in and that's what we need from him." McDonagh got on the scoresheet for the first time this season on Monday against San Jose with two assists.

Ryan McDonagh scored in Team USA's 4-3 loss to the Czech Republic on Thursday night.

What an embarrassing display of hockey for Team USA throughout this tournament. They exit the World Cup having scored just five goals and finishing with a 0-3 record. McDonagh finishes the tournament as his team's leading goal scorer (two goals), while big names like Patrick Kane, Max Pacioretty, Blake Wheeler, Zach Parise and Blake Wheeler didn't find the back of the net at all in the tournament. It's back to the drawing board for USA Hockey.

Ryan McDonagh scored in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey.

McDonagh opened the scoring just 4:22 into the game, but it was all Team Canada after that. It's a disappointing performance from Team USA, after head coach John Tortorella called this their "championship game" earlier this week. The Americans have one game left against the Czech Republic, but regardless of the outcome, they won't be advancing to the semi-final. T.J. Oshie also scored for the USA in this one.

With Keith Yandle gone, Ryan McDonagh could be playing a bigger role with the man advantage this season.

McDonagh logged 1:55 minutes per game of power-play ice time in 2015-16, compared to Yandle's 2:36 minutes. "I relish that opportunity," said McDonagh. "I want to be leaned on more. I want to be depended on. Last year was a frustrating one for me personally and for the team. I’m amped up. I think we all are. We want to get back to being the team we were the two years before that. We’re going to be ready. I’m going to be ready." McDonagh had 34 points last season with nine of them coming on the power-play. During his 2013-14 43-point campaign, he had 13 power-play points.

Ryan McDonagh has been taking advantage of New York's early exit from the playoffs.

The Rangers lost to Pittsburgh in five games in Round 1, which was the team's earliest elimination since McDonagh's rookie season of 2010-11. "All the Ranger guys here, myself, [Derek] Stepan and Brady [Skjei] are training together and really trying to take advantage of the extra time we've got for unfortunate reasons, being knocked out early," he said. "We've been skating and training hard together getting ready for this year." McDonagh believes in the group New York has and thinks they are hungry to enjoy success again in 2016-17.
