McDonagh completing degree during breaks in Lightning schedule

Ryan McDonagh isn’t just lacing up his skates this season. He’s also hitting the books.

The Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman is working on getting his bachelor’s degree in personal finance at the University of Wisconsin via online learning. He left Wisconsin in 2010 after his junior season, just 18 credits short of the finish line, and signed a contract with the New York Rangers.
