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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
May 27 - 1:25 PM

With the Ottawa Senators season officially coming to an end on Thursday, it is time for the Senators organization to shift their focus to the upcoming expansion draft.

The biggest conundrum facing the Senators is whether or not to protect Bobby Ryan for the Vegas expansion draft taking place on June 21st. Despite a strong playoff run, Ryan picked up only 25 points during the regular season and his $7.25 cap hit for the next five-years is the highest on the team. If the Senators were to lose him to Vegas, they'd free up some money but they'd find it extremely difficult to replace Ryan's production during the past few weeks. One thing is certain, the talented forward definitely wants to stay. "Ten years for me, I’ve never been part of anything like it," Ryan said of the "incredible run by an incredible group of guys". Despite his contract, he appears to be highly motivated to build on his playoff success and bounce back during the upcoming campaign.

Bobby Ryan recorded his sixth goal of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs in Game 6 against Pittsburgh.

Ryan had a great start to the playoffs against Boston, slowed down versus the Rangers and now he has heated up again in the Eastern Conference Final. He has produced two goals and four assists in six matches opposing the Penguins. Ryan ended Ottawa's 0-for-29 drought on the power play when the Senators were given a two-man advantage in the second period on Tuesday night.
May 24 - 8:14 AM

Even though they were dismantled 7-0 by the Penguins on Sunday, the Senators can't afford to dwell on the embarrassing loss.

"For me, I spend about a half hour pissed off and kicking the dog, but that’s about it," Sens forward Bobby Ryan said. "You can’t dwell on that. You can’t go home and be negative, you can’t re-watch the game and think, this was the play in the game, because there was a hundred of them. I flush it. I’ll come to the rink tomorrow, ready to refresh." The Senators are now one loss away from being eliminated from the postseason. Game 6 will be played in Ottawa on Tuesday night.
May 22 - 8:56 AM

Bobby Ryan registered two assists in the Senators' 5-1 win over Pittsburgh in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Ryan already has two multi-point games in the series against Pittsburgh. He's excelled in the playoffs with five goals and 13 points in 15 contests. That's a big step up from the regular season when he was limited to 12 goals and 25 points in 62 games.

Bobby Ryan scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's 2-1 OT win over Pittsburgh in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final.

The Sens forward had quite a night in the opening game of the series, as he also helped set up Jean-Gabriel Pageau's first-period goal with a no-look backhanded pass from behind the Penguins' net. Ryan then ended the overtime period at the 4:59 mark of the extra frame. He finished the game with a plus-2 rating and two shots on goal and three blocked shots in 17:14 of ice time. Ryan now has five goals and six assists in 13 postseason games. Game 2 will be played in Pittsburgh on Monday night.
May 13 - 10:33 PM

Bobby Ryan admits that the Pittsburgh Penguins are a better team than Ottawa on paper, but he still believes his team can surprise.

"On paper, they’re the better team, but we feel like if we can contain a little bit of Crosby and Malkin, and make their depth players step to the forefront, we might have a chance, and that’s all we can hope for is a chance," Ryan said. The Sens have knocked off Boston and New York in the first two rounds, but this challenge will be stiffer than anything they've faced so far. The Pens are the defending Stanley Cup Champions and the Sens will need a near perfect effort to knock them off. Game 1 of the best-of-seven series goes tonight in Pittsburgh.
May 13 - 10:28 AM

Bobby Ryan blocked three shots in Game 6 on Tuesday night.

He stopped one shot with his leg and another with his back during one shift. "It stung a little bit, but no big deal," Ryan said. "It was a long shift. We were hemmed in. That's this time of year. Sometimes, you're going to have to get in front of them and bail your goaltender out. We had a couple of breakdowns on that shift and I was kind of the last man standing. And I got some lucky blocks." He also registered an assist in the contest to give him nine points in 12 playoff games.
May 10 - 5:07 PM

Bobby Ryan (lower body) declared himself ready to play in Game 4 Thursday night.

Ryan was hurt during Tuesday's game and limited to 11:45 minutes of ice time as a result. He's been a major factor for Ottawa in the 2017 playoffs with four goals and eight points in nine games.
