McDonagh (abdomen) will rejoin the lineup against the Hurricanes on Friday, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

McDonagh missed the Rangers previous four outing due to his abdominal injury, but appears to be ready to go versus Carolina. With the 28-year-old given the green light, Steve Kampfer figures to be the odd man out on the New York blue line.

McDonagh (abdomen) is targeting a return to the lineup against Carolina on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

McDonagh has missed the Rangers' previous four outings due to his abdominal injury. While the defenseman has notched 12 assists in 21 games this season, he is still searching for his first goal of the 2017-18 campaign. If Minnesota native does re-enter the lineup, it will likely be at the expense of Steve Kampfer or Nick Holden.

McDonagh (abdomen) won't play Tuesday night versus the Panthers, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

This marks the fourth consecutive absence for McDonagh. The puck-moving blueliner has had trouble fending off the injury bug throughout his seven-year NHL career, having appeared in all 82 games only in the 2011-12 campaign. There's no denying his impact when he does play, though, as he's registered 12 assists through 21 games while averaging 23:22 of ice time, including 2:15 on the man advantage. We advise that you practice patience with McDonagh.

McDonagh (abdomen) won't play Friday against the Red Wings or Sunday against Vancouver, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

McDonagh is reportedly dealing with a "mild strain" in his abdomen, so the Rangers are clearly proceeding with caution with their franchise defenseman. The University of Wisconsin product will be reevaluated ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Panthers, at which point another update on his status should be released.

McDonagh will not practice Tuesday and will not suit up for Wednesday's road contest against the Hurricanes due to an abdominal strain.

EDGE Analysis

It's possible that McDonagh sustained the injury during Sunday's win over the Senators, but regardless, the Rangers' captain is slated to miss at least one game as a result of the ailment. The University of Wisconsin product has yet to find the back of the net this season and has been focusing more on his defensive game, so fantasy owners will be hoping that this break can get him into more of an offensive mindset. Marc Staal could see a more expanded role with McDonagh on the shelf.

McDonagh recorded team-highs of five shots and 27:29 of ice time in Wednesday's 6-3 loss at Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

McDonagh led his club in ice time at even strength (19:14), on the power play (3:22) and shorthanded (4:53). New York's captain still hasn't lit the lamp on any of his 35 shots this season, but he's making a difference on offense with nine helpers in his past nine games.

McDonagh contributed an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Oilers.

EDGE Analysis

The captain has been leading by example with nine points in his last eight games -- but is still in search of his first goal on the season despite firing 30 shots thus far. Keep rolling with him.

McDonagh assisted in the first and third periods in a 4-2 Wednesday win over Boston.

EDGE Analysis

The Blueshirts' blue liner is up to 11 assists now, but still hasn't scored a goal this year. Given his high assist totals, though, his fantasy value remains positive based on his ability to find open teammates.

McDonagh fashioned a pair of assists -- he dialed up one at even strength and another on the man advantage in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

The Minnesota native is still searching for his first goal this season, but as a blueliner, he's naturally going to have a pass-first mentality. McDonagh currently ranks sixth on his team in points and third in assists.

McDonagh notched an assist to go with a plus-3 rating, two shots and two blocks in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes.

EDGE Analysis

This is the type of effort we've come to expect from the Rangers captain against inferior opponents like this. While McDonagh rarely takes over games offensively, he's able to drive possession with his stellar positioning and skating ability, which have helped him finish with a rating of at least plus-11 in each of his first seven NHL campaigns. His performance in this one merely brought McDonagh's season rating back to even to go with four assists in 11 games, but the two-time 40-point scorer will likely start to chip in more across the board as his team wakes up from its slow start.
