Rangers agree to terms with Ryan McDonagh
Last week, defenseman Ryan McDonagh told NHL.com he was unsure if he would sign a deal with the New York Rangers or return to the University of Wisconsin for his senior year.

His mind is now made up.

McDonagh, 21, agreed to terms with the Blueshirts on Tuesday afternoon and will be with the club when it opens training camp this September. McDonagh appeared in 119 games over three seasons with Wisconsin and tallied 14 goals and 32 assists, along with 174 penalty minutes. Just this past week, he participated in the Rangers' development camp in Greenburgh, N.Y.

A native of St. Paul, Minn., McDonagh was a two-time All-State and All-Conference high school hockey player.  He was named 2007 Minnesota Mr. Hockey after registering 14 goals and 26 assists for 40 points in his senior year at Cretin-Derham High School.  He also helped lead his team to a state title in 2006 and earned All-Tournament accolades during that impressive run.

Internationally, McDonagh has represented the United States in several tournaments, including the 2009 World Junior Championship, where he registered three assists and tied for the team-lead with a plus-five rating in six contests.  He also captured a Silver Medal with Team USA at the 2007 World U-18 Junior Championship, registering three assists in seven games.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
