McDonagh’s Going to be a Shutdown Defenseman

mcdonagh4Rory Boylen at The Hockey News has a great piece on Rangers prospect Ryan McDonagh….

Gordie Clark on what is expected from McDonagh…

“He’s just a smaller version of Marc Staal,” Clark said. “We did not have him as a point-producing guy. In the NHL, this guy is going to be a shutdown defenseman with his skating ability.”

…not a bad comparison. Hopefully, McDonagh plays a little tougher than Staal.
Clark also says that during his time at the combine, McDonagh’s been the single most impressive guy ever.
