Rangers sign Ryan McDonagh-3 year ELC

On another personnel front, senior-to-be Ryan McDonagh will join Stepan in the Rangers' prospects camp this week, a critical step in determining where McDonagh will be playing next season.

If McDonagh likes what he hears from New York officials, it's expected the standout defenseman will sign, becoming the fourth underclassmen to leave the Badgers for the pros since April.

If McDonagh doesn't get the proper vibes/assurances, it's expected he will return for his senior season and captain the Badgers.

Well the Rangers feel McDonagh is ready for pro hockey. Gordie Clark has said it. Glen Sather has said he wants to sign McDonagh and have him earn a spot on the team. Brendan Smith and Cody Goloubef are expected to begin their pro careers in the AHL.

Derek Stepan decided to forego his last two years of college hockey to turn pro. He liked what he heard from the Rangers. He understands he will play in the AHL if he doesn't make the Rangers.

Prospects camp starts next Monday. It's always the Monday after the draft.
