Impact: McDonagh, who has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Sabres, will perform off-ice workouts while the team takes part in morning skate before taking to the ice Friday.

News: Coach Alain Vigneault ruled McDonagh (arm) out for Thursday's game against the Sabres and said it was "50/50" whether or not the defenseman would play in the regular season finale against the Canadiens on Saturday, Jim Cerny of BlueshirtsUnited.com reports. Impact: After injuring his shoulder more than a week ago, McDonagh was able to skate for a second straight day Tuesday, but is still not quite 100 percent healthy. McDonagh will likely have to get in some contact work in practice before being cleared for a return.(RotoWire, )

News: McDonagh (arm) practiced in a non-contact jersey Wednesday. Impact: It was McDonagh's second straight practice on the ice, although he's clearly not ready to draw back into the lineup just yet.

News: McDonagh (arm) took light wrist shots on net in Tuesday's team practice and isn't likely to play against Carolina, reports Andrew Gross of The Record. Impact: The defenseman was also observed feeding winger Marty St. Louis one-timers. While it appears McDonagh is getting back in the saddle, with the team having already punched their ticket to the playoffs, it's not likely the organization will risk McDoangh's long-term health for a chance at home-ice advantage. However, here's a chance the offensively potent blueliner comes back to regain his timing in one of the team's two remaining regular-season games.(RotoWire, )

News: McDonagh (arm) will not play Saturday against the Senators, ESPN's Katie Strang reports. Impact: McDonagh's set to miss a second straight game with the arm injury, but coach Alain Vigneault indicated Thursday that he doesn't expect the 24-year-old to be out for long. Consider him questionable for Tuesday's game against Carolina until there's indication otherwise.(RotoWire, )
