Today, the Nashville Predators announced that Ryan McDonagh has been traded back to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Predators released this statement:
Nashville, Tenn. (May 21, 2024) – Nashville Predators General Manager Barry Trotz announced today that the team has acquired a seventh-round pick in the 2024 NHL Draft and a second-round pick in the 2025 NHL Draft from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for defenseman Ryan McDonagh and Edmonton's fourth-round pick in the 2024 NHL Draft.

«We want to thank Ryan for all he meant to the Predators organization over the past two seasons, including serving as an alternate captain,» Trotz said. «His renowned leadership qualities and dedication to doing whatever it takes to win made an immediate impact on our team both on and off the ice. We wish Ryan and his family all the best as they return to the Lightning organization.»

«At the same time, this trade adds to our already deep corps of draft picks over the next two NHL Drafts and allows us to continue to make tweaks and improvements to our team during the offseason. We want to make decisions that help us build on the success we had in the 2023-24 season by giving us as many weapons as we can get, whether it's younger players on our roster, more impactful draft choices or salary cap flexibility.»

The Predators have nine picks in the 2024 NHL Draft, which is scheduled from June 28-29 at the Sphere in Las Vegas – three in the second round, two in the third and fourth rounds and one in the first round and seventh rounds.

Nashville now has nine picks in the 2025 NHL Draft – two in the first, second and third rounds and one in the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds.
