New York, NY – New York Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh will miss Tuesday's game against the Winnipeg Jets with an undisclosed injury he sustained in the team's most recent outing.
McDonagh left Saturday's 3-0 loss in Montreal in the second period after being hit hard into the boards by the Canadiens' Max Pacioretty. The third-year blueliner did not participate in either Monday's practice or Tuesday's morning skate.
New York will also be without left wing Rick Nash for a fourth straight contest when it faces the Jets, though the prized offseason acquisition did return to the ice for Tuesday's workout. The Rangers have also not revealed the exact nature of Nash's injury.
Forward Darroll Powe appears on track to be back in the lineup for Tuesday's tilt, however, after practicing for a second straight day. Powe has sat out the last three games after suffering a concussion on Feb. 17.
Defenseman Michael Del Zotto will miss a second straight game with a lower- body ailment.
