    Coach Dan Bylsma is going to be looking for guys who possess quickness to make up the defensive corps of this team, which means that McDonagh should get a roster spot. One of his biggest assets is how quickly he can join the rush, and on the international ice surface that type of speed will be crucial for the Americans to contend for the gold medal. He has also finished second in scoring for all Rangers defensemen each of the past two seasons, finishing behind Michael Del Zotto both times. McDonagh has also competed in international competition, most recently in the 2011 World Championships.
