Bobby Ryan (hand) might miss tomorrow's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Ryan took a slash from Nick Leddy yesterday. X-rays came back negative but head coach Guy Boucher said he might miss the game because of soreness. We'll know more tomorrow prior to puck drop. Ryan has one goal and eight points in 16 games so far this season.
Dec 2 - 5:56 PM

Bobby Ryan scored his first goal of the season during Friday's 6-5 win over the New York Islanders.

It took Ryan 16 games to find the back of the net, but he finally did it. Of course, the Senators forward missed eight games because of a finger injury. Regardless, Ottawa will need their veteran winger to be more productive going forward. Ryan has eight points in 16 games this season.
Dec 2 - 11:27 AM

Bobby Ryan and the Senators were shut out 3-0 on Broadway Sunday night.

Ryan, who has just six points and no goals in 11 games this season, was a minus-two on the evening with no shots despite playing on the Sens' "second first line" with Matt Duchene.
Nov 19 - 11:02 PM

Bobby Ryan will be back in the lineup on Thursday night.

Ryan will play alongside Matt Duchene, who will play his first game in an Ottawa uniform at home, and Ryan Dzingel. He hasn't played since Oct. 21 because of a broken finger. Ryan has six assists and no goals in eight outings this year.
Nov 16 - 10:14 AM

Ottawa has activated Bobby Ryan from injured reserve.

Ryan has missed the last eight games with a broken finger, but he will be ready to return Thursday night versus Pittsburgh. It will be interesting to see if he returns to a combination with Derick Brassard or if he gets look alongside Matt Duchene.
Nov 13 - 11:23 AM

Bobby Ryan (broken finger) appears to be close to a return.

Ryan has been busy skating in Ottawa while his teammates were playing in Sweden and he has been shooting the puck. It's possible he could be ready to return as early as Thursday's game against Pittsburgh.
Nov 13 - 10:19 AM

Bobby Ryan (broken finger) may skate with the Belleville Senators this week.

Ryan won't travel with the team to Sweden for back-to-back games against Colorado on Friday and Saturday. It is expected that he will miss about a month after he suffered a broken index finger on Oct. 21 against Toronto.
Nov 8 - 9:49 AM

Bobby Ryan suffered a broken index finger in Saturday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Head coach Guy Boucher said he expects Ryan to be out for about a month. The Sens forward has no goals and six assists in eight games this season.
Oct 21 - 11:43 PM

Bobby Ryan isn't overly concerned that he hasn't scored a goal after five games this year.

"I would like to get on the board, that would be nice," Ryan said. "I wanted to pick up where I left off (in the playoffs) and that was playing with energy, creating, finishing checks. I'm not satisfied, but I'm happy with where I'm at. My linemates are playing well and right now, we're moving it around and it's finishing with them." He has been skating alongside Derick Brassard and Mark Stone. Ryan has contributed four assists and a plus-9 rating, but he has only been credited with six shots on target.
Oct 17 - 10:10 AM

Bobby Ryan chipped in two assists in Ottawa's 5-4 shootout loss to the Washington Capitals.

Ryan concluded the contest with a plus-4 rating and two shots. Ryan skated alongside Derick Brassard (one goal, two assists) and Mark Stone (two goals) in the match. They were the only Senators forwards who had points in the defeat.
Oct 6 - 9:29 AM

Bobby Ryan found the back of the net in Wednesday's 5-3 preseason loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

Ryan is looking to bounce back after a terrible season in 2016-17. He managed to score only 13 goals and 25 points in 62 games, and the Sens will need him to be a whole lot better this year. Expect him to put a decent year together, but his days as 30-goal scorer may be a thing of the past.
Sep 27 - 10:53 PM

Bobby Ryan intends to be on the attack more in 2017-18.

Ryan had much more success in the playoffs after he struggled to produce during the regular season. "I think I was a little more aggressive (in the playoffs)," he said. "I think a lot of the regular season I was trying to figure out where I fit within the system, how I was going to be aggressive. There's a learning curve with everybody, but it took me longer to kind of grasp how I could be successful, and it clicked at the right time. Going into this year, I won't have to do that. I'll know where I can be a little more aggressive, and where I have to stay back. The chances I can take, and can't." Ryan only had 25 points in 62 games in 2016-17.
Sep 12 - 6:06 PM

The Ottawa Senators left Bobby Ryan off their protected list.

Ryan was limited to just 13 goals and 25 points in 62 regular season games, but he excelled in the playoffs with six goals and 15 points in 19 contests. Perhaps Ryan will bounce back after that strong postseason showing, but it's all-but certain that Vegas won't gamble on him. He comes with a $7,250,000 annual cap hit through 2021-22, so Ottawa would almost certainly need to bundle him with picks or prospects or take on a bad contract if the Senators decide at some point that they want to move him.
Jun 19 - 10:26 AM

Bobby Ryan doesn't seem too worried about the upcoming expansion draft.

Ryan laughed when asked about it and said he doesn't believe Vegas would take on his $7+ million dollar cap hit. The term of the deal (five-years) is probably what Vegas is more worried about. However, there won't be many more talented players than Ryan available to Vegas. His comments also indicate he isn't expecting the Senators to protect him. For now, we must wait and see the results of the June 21st expansion draft.
