Senators' Ryan Callahan: Remains in quasi-retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan remains on long-term injured reserve, with his contract set to end in July.

Callahan's contract is on Ottawa's books simply to help the team reach the salary floor, and he'll likely announce his retirement on July 1, the day his deal ends. The fact that his Twitter handle still says he's "#24 for the Tampa Bay Lightning" despite being traded to Ottawa four months ago is a pretty obvious sign that he's never going to play in the NHL again.

Senators' Ryan Callahan: Traded to Ottawa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lightning traded Callahan (back) and a 2020 fifth-round pick to the Senators in exchange for Mike Condon and a 2020 sixth-round pick Tuesday.

This is nothing more than a salary dump for Tampa Bay. Callahan's playing career has almost certainly come to an end due to a degenerative disc disease of his lumbar spine, so the Senators will simply place him on long-term injured reserve once the regular season gets underway. The veteran forward still has one year remaining on his contract, so he likely won't officially announce his retirement until it expires.

Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Career may be over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lightning placed Callahan on long-term injured reserve Thursday due to a degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine.

Callahan was considered a candidate for buyout, but it appears he may have already played the last game of his hockey career. The veteran collected just 17 points over 52 games with the Lightning during 2018-19 and officially remains under contract through 2019-20.

Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Potential buyout candidate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan played two of the Lightning's first-round games against the Blue Jackets, finishing with four PIM and four shots in limited ice time.

Callahan plays the kind of abrasive, physical game that a lot of people believe fits postseason hockey. But he was relegated to the media box a lot this season and flat-out told he was the team's 13th forward in the second half of the year. Changes are likely coming after the Bolts were swept out of the playoffs and Callahan is a likely target. The oft-injured winger has one year left on a deal that pays $5.8 million. The probability of a buyout is much more realistic than a trade.

Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Back to work Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan (undisclosed) will slot back into the lineup for Sunday's Game 3 matchup with Columbus.

Callahan missed the first two games of the series with this undisclosed issue, but it seemingly won't cost him a third. In the regular season, the New York native recorded 17 points (seven goals, 10 assists) over 52 games.

Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Slated to sit Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan (undisclosed) remained among the extras at Thursday's morning skate, indicating he should sit out again for Game 2 against the Blue Jackets, Erik Erlendsson of reports.

Not much light has been shed on the nature of Callahan's injury, but it will cost him at least the first two games of the series. Without him available, the Bolts will run with the same lineup that took the ice in a Game 1 upset loss. Callahan's next opportunity to return comes Sunday when the series heads to Columbus for Game 3.

Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Not looking good for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan (undisclosed) isn't expected to play against the Blue Jackets on Wednesday for Game 1 of the conference quarterfinals, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

It appears that Mathieu Joseph will slot in on the fourth line right wing for the Bolts rather than having the team push Callahan while he continues to deal with the mystery issue. Look for Callahan to be reevaluated ahead of Game 2 on Friday.

Lightning's Ryan Callahan: May be back at practice Tueday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan (undisclosed) was not on the ice at Monday's practice, reports

Head coach Jon Cooper said Callahan's removal from Saturday's game after just four minutes was "precautionary" and that he hoped the winger would be at practice Tuesday. Game 1 against Columbus is Wednesday.

Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Leaves game hurt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan (undisclosed) left Saturday's game against Boston early in the second period and did not return.

We're not sure what happened. All we know is that his last shift was three seconds long. Callahan has a long history of injuries, and the timing of this one is awful for the winger. He's already a fringe player for the Bolts, but his gritty game fits the postseason.

Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Can't find way into lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan has played just twice since Feb. 12.

He was told he was the Bolts' 13th forward, so he could expect sporadic ice time. Callahan had no points in those two games and just five shots. And with the recent strength of the trio of Adam Erne, Mathieu Joseph and Cedric Paquette, Callahan is going to see a lot more time in the press box.

Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Bolts' 13th forward going forward
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan has points in back-to-back games.

He has played in the team's last two games after sitting for the previous three of four and being told by the team he's their 13th forward. Callahan has a year left on a deal that hits the cap at $5.58 million, as well as a modified no movement clause that allows a trade to 15 teams. The Bolts would love to move the lead-footed veteran to free space for a new deal for Brayden Point, so this little bit of production might help. But Callahan could see the press box for the foreseeable future.

Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Ice time continues to drop
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan's ice time dropped to 7:56 against the Maple Leafs on Thursday.

He has only played more than 10 minutes a night three times in 10 games since his return on Dec. 22 from an upper-body injury. And he has missed a few games this month to the same malady. Callahan has four points in those 10 games, but he's averaged less than nine minutes of ice time when his average prior to the injury was 12-15. Callahan may not be fully healthy, and while his leadership is strong, there's no fantasy value here.

Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Slated for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan (upper body) is slated to rejoin the lineup for Saturday's game against the Sabres, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

Callahan has missed the last two games with an upper-body injury, but the extra couple days to rest up appear to have done the trick. He slotted in as the right winger on the fourth line during morning skate, so look for him to wind up there to begin the game.

Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Injured scratch Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan is dealing with a suspected upper-body injury that will prevent him from playing Thursday night against the Hurricanes, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

The oft-injured winger will miss a second straight game, but it's worth noting that the Lightning crafted a shutout victory to the detriment of the Blue Jackets when Callahan was out of pocket Tuesday. His next chance to play will now be Saturday for a road game against the Sabres.

Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Scratched Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan (upper body) won't play in Tuesday's game versus the Blue Jackets, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

Callahan was a surprise scratch with unfortunate timing, as he scored a goal and added two assists over the last two games. The 33-year-old winger will be replaced on the fourth line by Danick Martel, and his next chance to play will be Thursday versus the Hurricanes.

Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Scores winner in blowout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan recorded a goal and an assist in Thursday's 6-2 win over Los Angeles.

Callahan scored his fourth goal of the season to make it 3-0 in the first period, then assisted on a third-period Mathieu Joseph tally to stretch Tampa Bay's advantage to 6-1. The Lightning would have been just fine without Callahan's goal, but it technically stands up as the game-winner in this one.

Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan (upper body) will return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Oilers,'s Derek Van Diest reports.

Callahan's return to action will bolster Tampa Bay's bottom six, but it won't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only tallied three goals and eight points in 30 contests this campaign.

December 20, 2018 08:48 PM
Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Remains out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan (upper body) will miss Thursday's game in Calgary.

The veteran forward will miss another game, as Callahan remains out with an upper-body injury. The 33-year-old has been ineffective this season, having scored just three goals and eight points in 30 games.

December 18, 2018 10:12 PM
Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Nursing injury Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan is day-to-day with an upper-body injury and won't play in Tuesday's game versus the Canucks, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Callahan participated in practice but wasn't able to suit up for the game. He'll be replaced by Danick Martel on the fourth line.

Lightning's Ryan Callahan: First multi-point game of 2018-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan had two assists during Tuesday's 6-5 shootout win over Detroit.

Callahan lent a helping hand en route to Tampa Bay's overtime win, logging over 14 minutes of ice time for just the fourth time this season. It was the first multi-point game of the year for the winger, with the two assists doubling his season total. Known more for his leadership and workmanlike play, Callahan is a better real-life player than fantasy option at this point in his career.
