Ryder picked up an assist in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Penguins.A healthy scratch for much of the last couple of months, Ryder has since reentered the Devils' lineup the last two games while Patrik Elias deals with back spasms. Even so, Ryder's role with the team is far from secure, as he's seen less than 13 minutes in both games while occupying a bottom-six spot. Once Elias is cleared to play, it's likely Ryder will head back to the press box.
Ryder will be a healthy scratch for the second straight game Friday versus the Penguins, Rich Chere of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Ryder recorded a goal and assist in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Kings.It's the fourth two-point outing of the season for Ryder, who skated on the Devils' second line next to Mike Cammalleri and Dainius Zubrus on Wednesday. Despite the decent-sized role he's carved out at even strength and on the power play, Ryder has only 18 points in 40 games this season. He'll need to deliver a sustained run of scoring before warranting more interest.
Ryder returned to the lineup Friday, scoring a goal and recording four shots on goal in a loss to Montreal.Ryder, who had missed the past four games with the mumps virus, now has 15 points (five goals) in 35 games. His goal Friday was his first point in 10 games, as the 34-year-old has been an inconsistent and frustrating fantasy option this season. Until he starts putting up points more consistently, Ryder can't be trusted in most fantasy formats.
GM Lou Lamoriello said after Friday's morning skate that Ryder (illness) would be activated to play in the game later in the evening against the Canadiens, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Ryder (mumps) rejoined the Devils for Friday's morning skate, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.Ryder skated as an extra forward and doesn't look as though he'll return to the lineup Friday night against the Canadiens, but it appears safe to say that he's past the infectious stage in his recovery from the mumps. He could be a candidate to return for Saturday's game versus the Flyers, but waiting until next week may afford him more time to regain energy and strength.
The Devils placed Ryder (illness) on IR on Monday, Tom Gulitti of the Record reports.Ryder is still out with the mumps, so the team will free up a roster spot while he's sidelined. Either Stefan Matteau or Joe Whitney will play in Ryder's place against the Penguins on Monday.
Ryder was diagnosed with the mumps Saturday, NHL.com's Shawn Roarke reports.Ryder will be isolated from the team until his symptoms subside. The virus appears to be spreading rapidly through the team, as Adam Larsson, Patrik Elias, Scott Clemmenson, and Travis Zajac have all dealt with or currently have the mumps. Most players who have succumbed to the mumps have missed about a week of action, so expect a similar timetable to be in store for Ryder.
Ryder tallied a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 5-3 win over Toronto.A nice effort for Ryder after he watched Tuesday's game from the press box as a healthy scratch. The former 35-goal man nonetheless has not found twine since Nov. 6, and he has a modest five assists in 12 games since that two-goal performance against St. Louis.
Ryder picked up an assist in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Blue Jackets.In addition to picking up his seventh point in 11 games this season, Ryder paced the Devils with three hits on the evening. He's been a reliable contributor on the team's third line and could approach 40 points by the time the season concludes.
Ryder potted a power-play goal in Thursday's preseason loss to the Islanders, his third goal in two preseason games.Ryder was maddeningly inconsistent last season, his first with the Devils. He is one of several New Jersey players expected to see significant power-play time and top-six minutes. Ryder can score, but how often he does so is the question. He finished last season with 18 goals scattered across all 82 games, his lowest total per-game total since the 2010-11 season.
Ryder has just one goal in the last 27 games and has seen time on the team's fourth line in recent games.Ryder's lone goal came in last Thursday's win over Minnesota, but he has been demoted to the team's checking line and has seen his power play-time drastically cut in the last three tilts, playing just 1:09 total while averaging over 2:20 most of the season. Ryder simply isn't a reliable player for consistent production.
Ryder was on the ice for pregame warmups Saturday, while Ryan Carter was not, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.A previous report said that Ryder was likely the unspecified Devil in danger of missing Saturday's game, but it now appears that Carter was the man all along. Carter thus figures to sit, while Ryder is presumably good to go.
Ryder has been dealing with a minor back injury and may be a game-time decision for Saturday's contest against Tampa Bay, Tom Gulitti's Fire & Ice blog reportsDevils coach Pete DeBoer said that one of his team's forwards will be a game-time decision Saturday, and The Record's Tom Gulitti makes a very strong case that Ryder is that forward. Whether or not Ryder plays Saturday, it would appear that he's merely day-to-day and not facing a prolonged absence.
Ryder racked up 16 goals and 11 assists in 59 games before the Olympic break.The Devils have leaned on Ryder for offensive production since the departure of Ilya Kovalchuk, but he's been ice cold lately, posting just one point in the last nine games. The veteran winger will need to heat up after the break in order to retain his fantasy value.
Ryder's goal streak now stands at four games and four goals after he opened the scoring for the Devils in Saturday's OT win over the Panthers. He has six goals in his last nine games after netting just 10 in his first 37.Looks like Rip Van Winkle has woken up. Ryder came to Jersey to score goals and he's finally doing just that. Take advantage.
Ryder was the only player to find twine Thursday in a 1-0 victory over the Stars.That's goals in three straight and a pair of game-winners in the last five contests for Ryder, who's finally seeing some course correction in his stats following an atrocious start to the year. He's scored six goals and added two assists in his last 10 games. The fact that Thursday's goal came against his former Dallas employers, who traded him to Montreal last year, only makes it sweeter.
Ryder scored the game-winning goal and assisted on New Jersey's other tally in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Penguins.Ryder has three points in the last two games and three goals in the last six contests. He has more value in deeper leagues, as he likely won't return to his 30-goal form in the season's final 41 games, but he could finish with close to 25 goals.
Ryder scored one of New Jersey's two goals in Friday's overtime loss to Anaheim, giving him five goals in the last nine games.Ryder has seven points over that span and has been one of the Devils' more quietly productive offensive players the past month.

Ryder scored his seventh goal of the season and added an assist in Wednesday's loss to the Canadiens.Both of Ryder's points game in the third-period, as he set up Andrei Loktionov's game-tying goal before giving the Devils a temporary lead with a score of his own just five minutes later. Ryder would finish the game as the team leader with five shots on goal, tying his season-high.
