Top Derek Ryan News

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Generates assist

    Ryan logged an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Flames.

    Ryan snapped his 16-game point drought with a helper against his former team. The forward was scratched eight times during his slump -- he has been at risk of losing playing time since the Oilers acquired Adam Henrique and Sam Carrick from the Ducks at the trade deadline. Ryan's lack of offense, which has seen him put up 12 points and 46 shots on net over 68 games, makes him a non-factor in fantasy.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Set to return against Bruins

    Ryan (undisclosed) is expected back in the lineup against Boston on Tuesday, per NHL.com.

    Ryan will be back in action after being sidelined for just one game due to his undisclosed injury. The veteran has garnered just one goal and one assist in his last 18 contests, so fantasy players probably shouldn't be banking on him producing much in the way of offensive upside.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Dealing with minor injury

    Ryan (undisclosed) won't play Sunday against Pittsburgh.

    Sam Gagner will replace Ryan, who is out with a minor injury, in the lineup versus the Penguins. The 37-year-old Ryan has five goals and 11 points in 58 games this season.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Nets shortie Saturday

    Ryan scored a shorthanded goal in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Stars.

    Ryan went nearly a month without a goal, logging just one assist over his previous 10 games. The 37-year-old's offense has been lacking this season with 11 points (three shorthanded), 38 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating over 51 contests. He'll likely have a hard time matching his 20-point campaign from 2022-23, which was his lowest-scoring full-length season.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Sets up empty-netter

    Ryan logged an assist and two shots on goal in Friday's 5-3 win over the Ducks.

    Ryan set up Evander Kane's hat-trick clinching tally into an empty net. The assist snapped a six-game point drought for Ryan. The 37-year-old forward has seen limited minutes in a fourth-line role with the Oilers at full health, which doesn't bode well for his scoring potential. Ryan has 10 points, 33 shots on net, 24 hits and an even plus-minus rating over 47 appearances this season.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Nets equalizer in comeback win

    Ryan scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Ryan snapped an eight-game point drought with his tally early in the third period to tie the game at 2-2. The 37-year-old forward continues to log bottom-six minutes, so his scoring contributions are often sparse at best. He's at nine points, 28 shots on net and a minus-1 rating through 40 contests.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Notches assist in Friday's win

    Ryan produced an assist in Friday's 4-3 win over the Rangers.

    Ryan has picked up the pace in December with a goal and three helpers over nine contests this month. It's his most productive month of the season so far. The 36-year-old has been a regular in a bottom-six role, racking up eight points, 23 shots on net and a plus-1 rating while averaging 10:05 of ice time per game.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Helpers in consecutive games

    Ryan notched an assist in Thursday's 7-4 loss to the Lightning.

    Ryan has a helper in each of the last two games, and he's racked up three points over his last three outings. The 36-year-old remains in a fourth-line role, but with the Oilers scoring more goals lately, offense has trickled down to his spot in the lineup. He's produced seven points, 21 shots on net and a plus-1 rating over 27 appearances, with two of his points coming on the penalty kill.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Deals assist in win

    Ryan notched an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Blackhawks.

    Ryan has a goal and an assist over the last two games after going seven contests without a point. Playing on the Oilers' fourth line means his scoring chances have been far from consistent, but the 36-year-old can provide a burst of offense here and there. He's at six points, 20 shots on net and a plus-1 rating through 26 outings, so most fantasy managers likely won't need Ryan's services this season.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Opens scoring Sunday

    Ryan scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Devils.

    Ryan ended a seven-game point drought with his first-period marker. The 36-year-old forward is far from a consistent scorer while playing in the Oilers' bottom six, and he doesn't add much in the way of physical play either. For the season, Ryan has five points, 20 shots on net, 13 hits and an even plus-minus rating over 25 appearances.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Puts up helper

    Ryan logged an assist in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Panthers.

    Ryan has two goals and an assist over his last two games. The 36-year-old forward is capable of chipping in offense in small bursts, but his career-low average ice time of 10:11 per contest this season has further limited his chances to contribute. He's at four points, 13 shots on net, eight hits and a plus-1 rating through 17 appearances.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: First goals of season

    Ryan scored twice Saturday in a 6-4 loss to Tampa Bay.

    Ryan opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal at 3:39 of the first when his shot trickled past Jonas Johansson. He then put the Oil up 3-2 at late in the second when he hammered in a loose puck in the crease. The goals were the 36-year-old's first this season. Ryan has three points and 13 shots in 16 games this season.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Provides assist in win

    Ryan recorded an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Flames in the Heritage Classic.

    Ryan set up Evander Kane on the empty-net goal late in the third period. The Oilers have struggled to score at their expected pace this year, especially because of a lack of involvement from the bottom six. Ryan's helper was his first point in eight games, and he's added just six shots on net, six hits, four blocked shots and a minus-1 rating. His limited role suggests he won't be able to contribute enough for fantasy consideration this season.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Signs two-year extension

    Ryan signed a two-year, $1.8 million contract with Edmonton on Tuesday.

    Ryan, who would have been eligible for unrestricted free agency July 1, notched 13 goals and 20 points in 80 games during the 2022-23 season. The 36-year-old forward should be expected to occupy a bottom-six spot in the lineup next campaign.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Collects assist in loss

    Ryan notched an assist in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 6.

    Ryan set up a Warren Foegele goal in the first period. Over 11 playoff contests, Ryan did alright with three points, 19 shots on net, 11 hits and a plus-3 rating while filling a bottom-six role. The defensive forward is set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and it's unclear if the Oilers will be interested in bringing him back.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Sets up lone tally

    Ryan notched an assist in Monday's 5-1 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 3.

    Ryan made a centering pass early in the first period, and Warren Foegele was able to knock it in. The helper snapped Ryan's five-game point drought, and he missed one contest with an illness in that span. The 36-year-old has two points, 14 shots on net, eight hits and a plus-3 rating through eight playoff outings as a reliable defensive forward in the Oilers' bottom six.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Set to return Saturday

    Ryan (illness) is expected to be in the lineup for Saturday's Game 2 versus the Golden Knights, per the NHL media site.

    Ryan missed Game 1 on Wednesday, but he's had enough time to recover. He should reclaim his place in the lineup in a bottom-six role with Mattias Janmark (undisclosed) suffering his second injury of the playoffs in Wednesday's second-round series opener.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Misses Game 1 with illness

    Ryan (illness) wasn't available for Wednesday's Game 1 versus the Golden Knights, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

    It wasn't clear if Ryan was dealing with something or simply a healthy scratch prior to the contest. He can be considered day-to-day ahead of Game 2 -- if healthy by Saturday, he'll likely retake his spot in the lineup over Mattias Janmark (undisclosed).

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Scores on rebound

    Ryan scored a goal, added three hits and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Kings in Game 2.

    Ryan has been steady lately with two goals and two assists over his last five games. He deposited a rebound after a Leon Draisaitl shot caromed off the end boards early in the first period. Ryan is still in a bottom-six role, so his chances to contribute offense in the playoffs are likely to be limited.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Generates helper in 500th game

    Ryan logged a shorthanded assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Sharks.

    Ryan set up the second of Mattias Janmark's tallies in the game. Three of Ryan's 20 points this season came while shorthanded. The 36-year-old forward played in his 500th regular-season game Thursday, and he's collected 191 points in his career while often playing bottom-six minutes. He'll likely be a key defensive forward for the Oilers in the playoffs.
