McDonagh college graduation split

Ryan McDonagh has plenty of hockey achievements, including winning two Stanley Cup championships with the Tampa Bay Lightning and playing in the NHL All-Star Game twice. He now has another personal achievement to add to his list.

The Nashville Predators defenseman finished his college degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and got his diploma at the school’s commencement ceremony over the weekend.

McDonagh got to celebrate the achievement with his friends and family, including former Badgers teammate Cody Goloubef, who also earned his degree.

The St. Paul, Minnesota native was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens with the No. 12 pick of the 2007 NHL Draft and played three seasons at Wisconsin before signing with the New York Rangers in 2010.

Now, 14 years and 928 NHL games later, McDonagh has earned his degree.

Pretty solid way to kick off the offseason.
