Ryan McDonagh Added To Team USA Roster for World Championships

Earlier I posted about Derek Stepan being added to Team USA for the World Championships.  News keeps changing as now Kevin Allen of USA Today is reporting that Rangers' defenseman Ryan McDonagh will also be added to the Team USA roster for the tournament.  Being selected for the tournament is a great thing for McDongah as it gives him even more experience on a big stage to add to the development he had as a rookie NHL player.  McDonagh had one goal and eight assists while recording an impressive plus-sixteen rating in 40 regular season games with the Rangers this year.  In the playoffs he did not score, but once again showed that he is not intimidated by any stage or any opponent.  He will get to do that again as a member of Team USA. 

Having Kreider, Stepan and McDonagh on Team USA will only increase the interest of Rangers fans in how the team fares and gives yet another glimpse of how bright the future is going to be on Broadway.
