Ryan (finger) was waived by the Flames on Tuesday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.
This move will enable Calgary to move Ryan between its active roster and taxi squad freely whenever he's ready to return from his finger injury. For now, the veteran forward remains on long-term injured reserve.
Ryan (finger) was moved to long-term injured reserve Saturday.
Ryan will miss at least 10 games and 24 days with the injury, so he won't be expected to return until early March. He is recovering from a fractured finger suffered in Thursday's contest versus the Jets. With Ryan out, Zac Rinaldo, Byron Froese and/or Sam Bennett will likely fill a fourth-line center role.
Ryan (finger) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Ryan Pike of Sportsnet reports.
Ryan is recovering from a fractured finger that he suffered Thursday against the Jets. He'll likely require at least a couple weeks to recover. The 34-year-old has played in all 10 of Calgary's games this year, posting just one point. Byron Froese was recalled from AHL Stockton and could enter the lineup in Ryan's place.
Head coach Geoff Ward said Saturday that Ryan has a broken finger and it's uncertain when he'll return, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports.
Ward basically stated that the team needs to wait until the fracture is healed, so he'll likely require a few weeks on the sidelines. Ryan met with a specialist Friday, so perhaps the team will have a more definitive timeline soon. He'll likely be placed on injured reserve to clear up a roster spot.
Ryan injured one of his fingers during Thursday's loss to the Jets and has been referred to a specialist, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
More information regarding Ryan's outlook should be released soon, but for now, it's safe to assume he'll miss Saturday's game against Edmonton at a minimum. Sam Bennett is expected to replace Ryan on the Flames' fourth line against the Oilers.
Ryan (undisclosed) did not play after the first period in Thursday's game versus the Jets, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.
It's unclear how Ryan was injured, but he logged only 2:18 of ice time on six shifts. The 34-year-old has held down the fourth-line center job this season, but his status for Saturday's game versus the Oilers is in doubt. If he can't play, Zac Rinaldo or Sam Bennett could enter the lineup in a bottom-six role. Consider Ryan day-to-day for now, as there was no update on his status after Thursday's contest.
Ryan, as expected, will be promoted to the active roster ahead of Thursday's matchup with Winnipeg and figures to slide into a fourth-line role, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Considering Ryan has played in all nine games for the Flames this season, any future demotions to the taxi squad can be chalked up to cap-related maneuvers by Calgary that aren't expected to stop anytime soon.
Ryan was assigned to the taxi squad Wednesday, per CBS Sports.
Ryan hasn't missed a game for the Flames this year, with an assist, five blocked shots and a plus-1 rating in nine appearances. Expect him back on the active roster for Thursday's game versus the Jets.
Ryan was activated from the taxi squad Tuesday.
Ryan's expected to play in Tuesday's road game against the Jets. The 34-year-old has suited up for all eight games this season, averaging 11:04 of ice time and recording one point and four PIM.
The Flames assigned Ryan to their taxi squad Tuesday, according to TSN.
Ryan has appeared in every one of the Flames' first eight games of the campaign, so this is likely just a paper move. The 34-year-old forward has picked up one helper this season.
Ryan recorded an assist in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Canadiens.
Ryan had a hand in Milan Lucic's goal late in the third period to spoil Carey Price's shutout bid. The assist is Ryan's first point of the year. The 34-year-old hasn't added much else either, with just three shots on goal, three blocked shots and four PIM through six outings in a fourth-line role. Ryan has been involved in a lot of paper transactions to help the Flames accrue cap savings, but the veteran center will suit up more often than not -- he's yet to miss a game this season.
Ryan was brought up from the taxi squad to the active roster ahead of Tuesday's game against visiting Toronto.
Oliver Kylington was also moved up to the roster, suggesting one or both will likely play against the Maple Leafs. Ryan has yet to record a point in 11:20 of average ice time across four games this season, though, so those in daily formats can safely avoid him.
Ryan was reassigned to the practice squad Monday.
Ryan has consistently been shuffled up and down between the main roster and the taxi squad but still has played in all four games for the Flames this season. Calgary will likely continue to pinch pennies by moving players up and down. Fantasy players should anticipate Ryan being promoted ahead of Tuesday's matchup with Toronto and figures to continue providing bottom-six depth.
Ryan was activated from the taxi squad Sunday.
Ryan has played in each of the first three games of the season, but he hasn't posted a point and has just two shots on net. The 34-year-old is slated to center the fourth line.
Ryan was promoted from the taxi squad to the active roster Monday.
Ryan suited up for both of Calgary's games this season, averaging just under 11 minutes of ice time. He should slide into the bottom six for Monday's contest against Vancouver.
Calgary assigned Ryan to its taxi squad Friday.
Ryan logged 10:43 of ice time in Thursday's season opener against the Jets, finishing the contest with one shot on goal and two PIM. The 34-year-old pivot will likely continue to shuffle between the Flames' active roster and taxi squad throughout the season, so he'll be hard to rely on from a fantasy standpoint.
The Flames recalled Ryan from the taxi squad Thursday.
Ryan was placed on waivers by the club Monday, but after going unclaimed, he reverted to the team's taxi squad. Last season in a bottom-six role, Ryan racked up 10 goals and 29 points across 68 games at the NHL level. The 34-year-old could draw into the lineup on the fourth line for Thursday's game against the Jets.
Ryan was placed on waivers Monday, Hailey Salvian of The Athletic reports.
Ryan was often used as the Flames' fourth-line center last season, but with Elias Lindholm and Sam Bennett shifting to pivot in 2020-21, Ryan could end up as a spare forward. With his placement on waivers, Ryan will be eligible for the taxi squad. The 34-year-old center had 29 points in 68 contests last year and should be the first player to enter the lineup in case of injuries.
Ryan had a shorthanded assist in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Stars in Game 4.
Ryan found Tobias Rieder for the goal at 3:11 of the third period. Through eight postseason outings, Ryan has managed two helpers, a plus-3 rating and seven shots on goal.

Ryan picked up a helper on a Sean Monahan empty-net tally, assuring the former wouldn't be held off the scoresheet for the entire series. The 33-year-old Ryan added four shots and an even plus-minus rating in four games, mostly skating as the fourth-line center.
