Injured McDonagh to travel with Rangers
New York Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh will continue traveling with the team after sustaining an upper-body injury following a hit from Vancouver Canucks forward Alexandre Burrows during the Rangers' 3-1 win in Vancouver on Tuesday night.

New York Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh will continue traveling with the team after sustaining an upper-body injury following a hit from Vancouver Canucks forward Alexandre Burrows during a 3-1 win in Vancouver on Tuesday, according to the Rangers.

McDonagh appeared to injure his left shoulder on the play, but sustained no structural damage, according to the New York Post.

He isn't expected to play Thursday against the Colorado Avalanche.

The Rangers did not offer any more specifics regarding McDonagh's condition.

In 77 games, McDonagh has 14 goals, 43 points and a plus-11 rating. He leads the Rangers in ice time, averaging 24:49 per game.

New York wraps up its four-game road trip in Colorado before returning to Madison Square Garden for three games. The Rangers complete their season on the road against the Montreal Canadiens.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
