Bobby Ryan got a goal for the Senators on Saturday night, however they still lost 4-2 against Calgary.

Ryan has points in four of his past five games, though he hasn’t exactly been the top-flight option Ottawa hoped he’d be. He has a 9.8% scoring rate on 41 shots on goal, so the goal scoring should tick up in time. What’s clear is that he’s probably no longer a 30-goal scorer. Clarke MacArthur potted the other goal. Kyle Turris, Milan Michalek, Eric Gryba and Erik Karlsson picked up the assists.

Bobby Ryan has scored three goals in 13 games this season and he knows he has to contribute more.

"Offensively, you are never satisfied and obviously it's not there," said Ryan. "I feel that the looks have been there (but the puck is just not going in). I just try to maintain the attitude that if the puck's not going in for you to at least get to the net, finish your checks and open up some space for some other guys. I'm still able to draw double coverage in some situations and open spots for guys." Coach Paul MacLean wants Ryan, who has been credited with 35 shots on goal, to shoot more. Ryan has been trying to play better defensively this season and he's been happy with his work in that regard. He has picked up an assist in each of his past two outins.

Bobby Ryan (wrist) is back in the Sens' lineup on Sunday.

Ryan missed one game with the injury. Ryan has three goals and seven points in 12 games this season. He is a key piece of Ottawa's forward group and instantly makes them better.
Nov 9 - 4:12 PM

The Ottawa Senators will be without forwards Bobby Ryan and Alex Chiasson along with defenseman Chris Phillips against the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday.

It sounds like Colin Greening and Erik Condra will take the missing forward spots, so adjust your lineup accordingly.
Nov 8 - 6:35 PM

Be ready to bench Ottawa Senators forward Bobby Ryan, as he's a toss-up tonight.

It sounds like Ryan is likely to miss Saturday's game against the Winnipeg Jets, so be ready to make a move. It might even be wiser to bench him for now.
Nov 8 - 6:30 PM

Bobby Ryan's status for Saturday night's game will be determined after the pre-game skate.

He was slashed during Thursday's 3-0 win over Minnesota Thursday night and suffered what appears to be a wrist injury. Ryan he skated with the extras on Saturday morning indicating he may not be in the lineup Saturday night against Winnipeg. Check back with us later today as to Ryan's status.

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.
Oct 17 - 1:37 PM

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.
Oct 3 - 10:42 PM

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.
Oct 2 - 9:34 AM

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.

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.
Sep 24 - 10:46 PM

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.
