Ryan O'Reilly has returned to North America to get treatment on his foot.
O'Reilly and KHL Metallurg mutually agreed to terminate his contract after he sustained the injury. That gives Metallurg time to sign a replacement before that window closes on Jan. 31. However, O'Reilly and the Colorado Avalanche don't appear to be any closer to agreeing to terms. "It really doesn't change anything," O'Reilly's agent, Mark Guy said of his client's departure from the KHL.
