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.... See More ... See Less

McDonagh logged an assist, two shots on goal, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Blackhawks.
McDonagh helped out on defense partner Tyson Barrie's second-period tally. That pairing should strike a good balance for the Predators -- Barrie has scoring flair, while McDonagh is a steady defender. The assist snapped a six-game slump for McDonagh, who is now at 15 points, 52 shots on net, 118 blocks, 50 hits and a plus-19 rating through 53 contests overall.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Three-point effort Saturday
McDonagh produced three assists in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Panthers.
The veteran defenseman had gone scoreless in nine straight games coming into this one, but McDonagh suddenly erupted for his first multi-point performance of the season. Despite this effort, the 33-year-old defenseman still has just one goal and 14 points through 46 games, but his value on the Nashville blue line doesn't come from his offense -- two more blocked shots Saturday put McDonagh four away from reaching 100 for the 10th time in his 13-year NHL career....

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.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Ryan McDonagh: Back in action Wednesday
McDonagh (upper body) will return to the lineup versus the Blackhawks on Wednesday, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.

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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less

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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
