McDonagh has 21 points, including 18 assists, in 32 games with the Lightning.

EDGE Analysis

He is having the most productive season of his career. Right now, McDonagh is on pace to deliver his first 50-plus point season. Some of this is due to Victor Hedman's absence due to injury earlier this season. But McDonagh has been delivering with Hedman in the lineup. Keep him rolling.

McDonagh (upper body) is in Saturday's lineup against Florida, reports Lightning beat writer Bryan Burns.

EDGE Analysis

McDonagh missed most of Thursday's win over Buffalo with the injury, but it wasn't serious enough to keep him out of this contest. One of the two former Rangers captains on Tampa Bay's roster will look to build on his season total of 18 points through 26 games.

McDonagh (upper body) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's road tilt against the Panthers, Diana C. Nearhos of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

McDonagh reportedly took to the ice for an optional morning skate, but we're not likely to hear word on his official status for the upcoming contest until warmups.

McDonagh is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

EDGE Analysis

It appears as though McDonagh didn't suffer a major injury when he was boarded by Buffalo's Jack Eichel during Thursday's 5-4 win over the Sabres, but at this point he should probably be considered questionable at best for Saturday's matchup with the Panthers. If McDonagh's unable to go, Slater Koekkoek will likely draw into the lineup against Florida.

McDonagh left Thursday's game against the Sabres after suffering an undisclosed injury, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

McDonagh appeared to suffer the injury when he took a hard hit from Buffalo's Jack Eichel during the first period of Thursday's contest. The former Ranger was able to skate off the ice and head into the locker room under his own power, but he didn't return for the start of the second period. Another update on McDonagh's status should surface ahead of Saturday's matchup with the Panthers.

McDonagh scored a goal and added two helpers in a 7-3 routing of the Panthers on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The Minnesota native has a pair of goals and 16 points in 22 games, currently on pace to shatter his career high of 43 points set during the 2013-14 campaign. McDonagh has quickly turned into a valuable fantasy asset in Tampa Bay's high-powered offense.

McDonagh delivered three assists -- including a power-play helper -- in Sunday's 4-3 overtime road win over the Senators.

EDGE Analysis

McDonagh matched a season high in points with this performance, helping the Bolts storm back from a 2-0 deficit and providing the secondary apple in overtime. While the top-pairing defenseman has 10 points (one goal, nine assists) through 14 games, he's been held without a point in eight contests thus far. In general, fantasy owners would appreciate more consistency from McDonagh.

McDonagh collected three hits and a team-high five blocked shots in Tuesday's 4-2 home win over the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

McDonagh's fearless ways definitely helped netminder Louis Domingue pick up a win in his season debut. The 29-year-old defenseman from St. Paul, Minnesota has one point (an assist) through the first four games of the new season; it's too early to extract much meaning behind that small sample, but just know that McDonagh is close to a half-point-per-game player.

McDonagh has been practicing with Anton Stralman on the Lightning's second pairing, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

McDonagh struggled after the Rangers sent him to Tampa Bay, scoring just two goals and one assist in 14 games. Part of the issue was his lack of power-play minutes, and it's not clear if he'll be able to earn that role back. Still, McDonagh has had plenty of time to find chemistry with his Tampa Bay teammates, so he should be expected to at least eclipse 30 points with the Lightning, but his $6.75 million AAV contract calls for at least 40.

McDonagh signed a seven-year contract extension with the Lightning worth $6.75 million annually, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports. The deal will go into effect starting in the 2019-20 season.

EDGE Analysis

The Lightning acquired McDonagh in a blockbuster trade near last season's trade deadline and the team has now locked him up until he's 37 years old. The 29-year-old blueliner wasn't too spectacular with his new team last season, scoring just two goals and three points in 17 regular season games and five assists in 17 postseason contests. Still, McDonagh has proven to be a very strong and consistent two-way defenseman and should get back to scoring 30-plus points.
