Ryan was demoted to the fourth line for the third period of Thursday's game against the Lightning, the Ottawa Citizen reports.

Ryan has just one goal and three assists since March 6, as he's suffering through one of the worst slumps of his career while the Senators try to claw their way into a playoff spot. The veteran winger logged just 12:59 of ice time in Thursday's game, marking his lowest total since Nov. 28. While it's possible he'll be back to his normal role for Saturday's game against Washington, Ryan does seem to be losing the confidence of coach Dave Cameron.

Ryan dished out a pair of helpers in Saturday's 7-2 thrashing of the Oilers.After three straight games without a point, Ryan has gotten back on the horse, posting two consecutive two-assist efforts. He's now up to a very respectable 41 points in 50 games on a mediocre Senators team that lacks real firepower outside of he and Erik Karlsson, and -- if he can go on a tear of 23 or more points in the last 28 games -- has an outside shot at beating his career high of 64 points set in 2009-10 as a Duck.
