RYAN MCDONAGH RUMORS

All signs point to star defenseman Ryan McDonagh being named NY Rangers captain

The Rangers sent two players to the NHL’s season-opening media tour in Manhattan last week: Henrik Lundqvist and Ryan McDonagh. Lundqvist was there as the franchise goaltender and a star who transcends hockey. McDonagh, well, he is likely the team’s next captain. Alain Vigneault will conduct his first press conference of the 2014-15 NHL season on Thursday to officially open...

Leetch likes McDonagh, Rangers' D-men

Hall of Fame defenseman Brian Leetch was named the captain of the New York Rangers after the departure of legendary teammate and long-standing team leader Mark Messier in 1997. Leetch remembers how it felt when people started calling him captain, the recognition that came with wearing the 'C' of an Original Six team and the responsibility that came with representing such...

Briere punches McDonagh, will always be a rat (GIF)

Danny Briere is a diminutive forward who has made a lot of money in the NHL by being really good at hockey. He’s also a rat, which is probably why he has survived for so long considering he’s 5’8 (on a good day) and played a good chunk of his career prior to the ‘small guy friendly’ rule changes from the ’03-’04 lockout. Here, he straight up punches Ryan McDonagh in...

New York Rangers must protect Ryan McDonagh from himself

When Ryan McDonagh crumbled to the ice late Tuesday night in Vancouver, his mouth agape, his face warped in pain, Rangers fans held their breath. They crossed their fingers. They averted their eyes then immediately looked back. They waited for him to rise to his feet. The seconds rung like a gong. They dragged on relentlessly, their timbre low, their tenor dark. As McDonagh lay sprawled...

Ryan McDonagh Signs in KHL

New York Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh has become the third Blueshirt to sign overseas during the current NHL lockout, inking a deal with HC Barys Astana of the KHL.

Ryan McDonagh probably won’t be getting a contract extension this summer

In a season full of surprises, none was bigger than 22-year-old defenseman Ryan McDonagh. The former Wisconsin Badger was stolen from Montreal in the laughable Scott Gomez salary dump, arguably Glen Sather’s greatest transaction as general manager of the New York Rangers. McDonagh spent the first half of the 2010-2011 season quietly honing his game in Connecticut before being called...
