Bobby Ryan scored and assisted, but Ottawa still lost to New Jersey on Saturday night, 3-2 in overtime.
Ryan has been a bit slow out of the gate, with just two goals and four points, but that's nothing to worry about. He’s still a very good bet to get close to 30 goals this season. Alex Chiasson had the other goal, while Milan Michalek chipped in with two helpers. Erik Karlsson also had an assist. Oct 25 - 10:27 PM

Bobby Ryan scored his first goal of the season Thursday night.

Slow starts are nothing new to Ryan, so fantasy owners shouldn't panic that he has one goal and one assist in four games. He registered five shots in Thursday's win over Colorado after he entered the match with a meager total of four on the year.

Bobby Ryan practiced alongside Mika Zibanejad and Alex Chiasson on Sunday.

Mark Stone finished Saturday's game on a line with Kyle Turris and Clarke MacArthur and the new combinations seemed to work. Those lines also saw time together at training camp. Ryan is fine with the move and he's played with Zibanejad before. He has one assist in two games, but wants to improve on his meager shot total of two.

Bobby Ryan scored the overtime winner, as the Ottawa Senators defeated the Montreal Canadiens 4-3 in preseason action on Friday night.

This was Ryan’s first game since signing his seven-year, $50.75 million contract extension. If the Senators want to make the playoffs, they will need Ryan to improve on his 48 point total from last season. Erik Karlsson, Mike Hoffman and Alex Chiasson also scored for the Sens.

Bobby Ryan has signed a seven-year, $50.75 million contract extension with the Ottawa Senators.

In other words, Ryan will come with a cap hit of $7.25 million. He had a disappointing 2013-14 campaign with 23 goals and just 48 points in 70 games, but he was also playing through a sports hernia. Ryan has four 30-plus goal seasons under his belt and we expect more to follow. With Jason Spezza gone, Ryan is now by far the best offensive weapon the Senators have, so we're not surprised that they were willing to agree to a massive contract to stop him from walking away as an unrestricted free agent.

Bobby Ryan scored two goals and added an assist to lead the Ottawa Senators to a 3-2 preseason win against the Toronto Maple Leafs Wednesday.

He had his bell rung in a collision with teammate Kyle Turris on Sunday, but he didn't have any concussion-related symptoms. Matt Puempel also scored a goal for the Sens on a power play. Clarke MacArthur had two assists. Goalie Craig Anderson stopped 20 of 22 shots. Sam Carrick and Morgan Rielly each had a goal and an assist for the Leafs, who were outshot 35-22. Antoine Bibeau stopped 16 of 18 shots for Toronto and Calvin Heeter steered aside 16 shots.

Bobby Ryan (head) has been included in Ottawa's 25-man roster for Wednesday's preseason game.

Ryan still isn't confirmed to play, but the Senators are certainly keeping that possibility open. Ryan was hurt in a collision with teammate Kyle Turris.
Sep 23 - 3:11 PM

Bobby Ryan said he hasn't experienced any concussion-related symptoms following his collisiion with teammate Kyle Turris on Sunday.

He's expected to practice on Monday morning, but he won't play in either of Monday's preseason games against the New York Islanders. "We believe it's not something that's going to keep him out (long-term)," said coach Paul MacLean.

Bobby Ryan spoke to the media after having his "bell rung" during Sunday's scrimmage.

The incident occurred when Ryan collided into Kyle Turris. Ryan missed the rest of the contest and will be held out of Monday's preseason game as a precaution. "It was a broken play and Turris was circling one way behind the net and I was circling the other, and I think we both had a pretty good head of steam and never saw each other," said Ryan. "I just took it on the chin a little bit. It was alarming, I guess, that's the right word. They want to be very cautious with it."

Bobby Ryan had his "bell rung" during Sunday's scrimmage.

Ryan isn't experiencing concussion symptoms, but won't play in Monday's preseason game as a precaution. As we mentioned before, the stakes are low right now so it's completely feasible that the Senators are simply deciding to err heavily on the side of caution. After all, they have nothing to lose by keeping Ryan out of the preseason contest. That being said, head injuries are tricky and sometimes a player's outlook will be optimistic initially, but turn sour quickly. Hopefully that won't be the case here.

Bobby Ryan has suffered an undisclosed injury during Ottawa's scrimmage on Sunday.

Ryan exited the game in the second period and will be held out of the remainder of the contest as a precaution. This scrimmage means very little to Ottawa and even less to Ryan, whose position on the team isn't in question. With that in mind, it wouldn't be shocking to discover they decided to shut him down over the mildest of injuries. Unfortunately, we don't know that for a fact as Ottawa didn't specify the nature of Ryan's problem and sometimes the word precautionary gets thrown around for injuries that turn out to be significant. With that in mind, it's worth keeping an eye on this situation, even if it's too early to worry.
Sep 21 - 2:24 PM

Bobby Ryan hinted on Wednesday that the Ottawa Senators have offered him a seven-year contract.

"If you're going to hitch your wagon to a team for seven years, it's okay to take some time to decide if it's what you want to do or not," he said. "Everything I've said and still feel is that I'd love to be here long term, but you need some assurance and you need some motivating factor, to not get it done at this early stage isn't a tragedy." The Senators have not commented on the potential offer, but GM Bryan Murray did say on Monday that the team will push to get something done sometime in October or November.
Sep 17 - 11:34 AM

Bobby Ryan and the Ottawa Senators have no plans to negotiate before the start of the season.

Ryan is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He's coming off of a rough season, but it would still be another big blow to Ottawa if they end up letting Ryan walk after losing Jason Spezza and Daniel Alfredsson in the previous two seasons.
Sep 9 - 11:23 AM

Bobby Ryan hopes that contract talks with the Senators will pick up steam now that he's back in Ottawa.

"I was looking forward to getting back here to getting more involved than I have been (in negotiations), but as far as I knew, every discussion has been amicable and there haven't been any breakdowns or anything like that," said Ryan. "Everybody is confident that we're going to start going with (serious negotiations) when everyone is in town." He also believes he's fully recovered from sports hernia surgery, but he needs to work out some kinks in informal sessions prior to training camp. Ryan is expected to be a more vocal leader for the Senators this season, with Jason Spezza gone, and he feels up to the challenge.
Sep 3 - 10:02 AM

The Ottawa Senators have been negotiating with Bobby Ryan since July 1, GM Bryan Murray isn't sure if a deal will be reached before training camp.

It's believed Ryan wants to wait to see what type of salaries his peers are getting and of course he would garner plenty of interest as an unrestricted free agency next summer. This could be a situation that drags, but Murray is optimistic that a deal can be worked out.
