The New Jersey Devils have brought Ryane Clowe on board as an assistant coach.

Clowe actually has two seasons left on his five-year, $24.25 million contract, but he won't be able to play again after suffering a series of concussions. Those injuries brought an end to a playing career that included 112 goals and 309 points in 491 NHL games. "We are looking forward to Ryane joining our staff," said head coach John Hynes. "His character, expertise as a player, knowledge of the game and passion to coach will be a benefit for our players and the Devils’ organization."

Former NHLer Ryane Clowe could be getting a job with the San Jose Sharks in the near future.

Clowe is still under contract with the Devils, but concussion issues have forced him out of the game. CSN Bay Area's Kevin Kurz mentioned that his contract with New Jersey could make this an issue, but it's possible the two sides will work something out (a la Chris Pronger).

Ryane Clowe (concussion) has been put on New Jersey's injured reserve list.

This is just a matter of course. Clowe has already stated that his playing career is over, but he's still under contract with New Jersey through the 2017-18 campaign.

Ryane Clowe is frustrated that he was forced to retire from the NHL because of concussions.

"It’s extremely disappointing and frustrating," Clowe acknowledged. "I think I played the game the right way. I played it hard. The disappointing thing is I never missed any time I don’t think really besides with concussions, as far as other injuries." The 33-year-old missed the last 69 games of the 2014-15 regular season after sustaining a concussion in a game against the St. Louis Blues. That particular concussion was his fourth in just over a year and a half. Clowe said he was still experiencing post-concussion syndrome at the end of the season, but he feels better now which is good news for him. He finishes his career with 112 goals and 309 points in 491 games.

Ryane Clowe's playing career is over due to concussions.

"Based on the recommendation of doctors and the latest incident on Nov. 6 and the result of the injuries and the concussions, he's going to be unable to play hockey now or hockey in the future," said Devils GM Ray Shero. Clowe has played 10 seasons in the NHL, but he's missed considerable playing time for the past three years. He said he feels "pretty good" right now, but doctors are concerned that he can't without risking his long-term health. Clowe won't retire yet and he's still under contract for three more years, so he will remain on New Jersey's injured reserve list.

An update on the status of Ryane Clowe (concussion) is drawing closer with training camps just around the corner.

"We'll get through the weekend and see," said GM Ray Shero on Friday. "I know Ryane is back in town because his daughter is starting school next week. So, we'll see what next week brings us and before training camp starts on the 17th, we'll have some sort of information. We have to." He was absent for the final 69 games of the 2014-15 season after he suffered his fourth concussion in a year and a half. The Devils have maintained that the decision for Clowe to resume his career will be left up to the player and the doctors.

Devils GM Ray Shero suggested that it would be a long shot for Ryane Clowe to play this season.

"The last time he played was, what, Nov. 6? That's been a long time," Shero said. "Training camp is next month, so at some point, in terms of how he is feeling, a determination has to be made by him and doctors as to what direction he can or cannot go." Clowe has suffered four concussions in the past two seasons and he was limited to 13 games last year. He may be forced to retire depending on what his doctors recommend.

Ryane Clowe's possible return to action for the upcoming season will be made by him and his doctors.

He may not get the green light to play due to concussion problems. Clowe admitted that he was considering retirement at the end of last season even though he still has three years and $14.55 million left on his contract. He would like to continue to playing, but doctors may have the final call on his career.

Devils GM Ray Shero confirmed that they have no new information to share regarding Ryane Clowe (concussion).

A series of concussions have put the future of Clowe's playing career in doubt. He's been limited to 56 games over the last two seasons.
Wed, Jul 22, 2015 10:40:00 AM

Devils GM Ray Shero has no new information regarding Ryane Clowe's (concussion) future.

"I really don't," Shero said. "With Ryane Clowe, it think it's just is an ongoing thing. Lou has been so involved in this from the beginning. He has more information than I do. The most important part about it is Ryane and his health, let alone his career. It's more his health and how he's feeling and doing the right thing and him doing the right thing." The question at this point is if Clowe should continue his career or retire in light of the string of concussions he's endured in recent years. We might not get an answer to that until much closer to training camp, if then.

Ryane Clowe's future remains cloudy because of concussion issues.

GM Ray Shero and doctors will discuss whether or not Clowe will be able to resume his playing career, but right now no decision has been made. Clowe admitted in April that retirement could be a possibility. "Sometimes it's more of a personal decision," Shero said. "I think it's a combination of the player, the organization and doctors. All those things are taken into account for the best welfare of the player."

Ryane Clowe (concussion) will not return before the end of the 2014-15 campaign.

The real question at this point is if Clowe will ever play again as there's no guarantee that he will. Clowe, who was limited to just 13 games this season, has seen his career be derailed by a series of concussions over the last year and a half. Despite that, Clowe is traveling with the team on its current road trip, but that's strictly so that he can be around his teammates.

Ryane Clowe (concussion) is still "status quo," according to New Jersey Devils' GM Lou Lamoriello.

It's not clear if Clowe will ever play again, let alone return before the end of the 2014-15 campaign. Unfortunately, Clowe has been battered by concussions over the last year and a half, which has put the viability of him continuing his career in question.
Fri, Feb 6, 2015 10:13:00 AM

With four concussions in less than 18 months, Ryan Clowe's career could be over.

New Jersey Devils' GM Lou Lamoriello said it's, "very vague at this point" if or when Clowe will return to the ice. Clowe has not played since Nov. 8th, and has dressed just 98 times, including two playoff games with the Rangers, since 2012 for Sharks, Devils and aforementioned Rangers.
