Ryan scored a goal on two shots, blocked two shots and won 10 of 15 faceoffs in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Flames. After spending the last three years with the Flames, Ryan shipped up to Northern Alberta to join the Oilers. He wasted little time in making an impact against his old team with a goal at 13:08 of Saturday's contest. At 34 years old, Ryan shouldn't be expected to have a breakout year on offense. He managed just 13 points in 43 outings last year, although he had been good for roughly 30 points in the four seasons before that.
Ryan signed a two-year, $2.5 million contract with the Oilers on Wednesday, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports. Ryan spent the last three years with the Flames, but he'll get to see life from the other side of the Battle of Alberta in the next two seasons. After posting no less than 29 points in each of his first four full campaigns, the 34-year-old had just 13 points in 43 outings last year, in part due to a broken finger and the shortened schedule. Ryan should provide the Oilers with extra center depth in the bottom six, as well as steady penalty killing to replace Jujhar Khaira.
Ryan had three assists and was plus-2 in a 6-2 win over Vancouver in Wednesday's season finale. The 34-year-old had his most productive effort all season, figuring in on goals by Dillon Dube, Brett Ritchie and Connor Mackey. After amassing at least 10 goals and 29 points in each of his first four full NHL campaigns, Ryan dipped to just two goals and 13 points in 43 contests in 2020-21.

Ryan has 10 points, 33 shots on net, a plus-5 rating and 14 PIM through 39 outings.
Ryan collected two assists and one shot on goal Saturday in a 5-2 win over Montreal.
