Ryan (finger) was activated from injured reserve Monday.

EDGE Analysis

The American forward was originally projected to miss a full month of action, but with today's transaction he appears set to return a week early and play Thursday against Pittsburgh. Ryan struggled mightily during the previous regular season, scoring just 13 goals and 25 points in 62 games, but rediscovered his game in the 2017 postseason when he scored 15 points in 19 games. A four-time 30-goal scorer, Ryan began 2017-18 with six assists in eight games before suffering the injury and will look to continue this success when he rejoins the lineup, skating on Matt Duchene's wing.

Ryan will miss at least a month after breaking his finger in Tuesday's clash with the Kings, Steve Lloyd of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Ryan was still looking for his first goal of the season, he had managed to garner six helpers in the opening eight outings. Unfortunately, the winger will have to wait another month in order to find the back of the net. The 30-year-old will no doubt be placed on injured reserve in order to allow Ottawa to call-up a player from AHL Belleville.

Ryan left Saturday's game after taking a slap shot to the hand early in the third period.

EDGE Analysis

Ryan has already broken his hand several times in the last few years and this looked just as bad. Game cameras from CBC caught the coach Guy Boucher grimacing (and swearing) when the trainer came out to update him on the injury. More will be available after the game.

Ryan collected a pair of helpers in Thursday's season opener against Washington.

EDGE Analysis

The trio of Ryan, Derick Brassard and Mark Stone was electric in the loss, racking up a combined seven points. Ryan only managed 13 goals in an injury-riddled 2016-17 campaign, but he got back on track with a very impressive postseason. The 30-year-old is a solid sniper locked into a top-six role, making him worth owning in most fantasy formats.

Ryan (groin) is listed in the projected lineup for Thursday's regular-season opener against the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Ryan was dealing with a "minor" groin issue last week, but he was never in serious danger of missing Thursday's contest. The 30-year-old winger is expected to skate with Derick Brassard and Mark Stone on the Senators' second line against Washington, and he should also log some time on the man advantage as a member of Ottawa's second power-play unit.

Ryan will not suit up for Saturday's exhibition finale against host Montreal since he's dealing with a minor groin injury that originally surfaced earlier in the week. "Just a little groin pull," said coach Guy Boucher on Friday. "He should be fine for next Thursday but we don't want to aggravate it."

EDGE Analysis

Fantasy owners depending on Ryan for Opening Night against the Capitals on Thursday shouldn't fret, as Ottawa's bench boss does not sound at all concerned about the ailment. However, Ryan really struggled last season, having notched 13 goals, 12 assists and a minus-3 rating over 62 games, so he can ill-afford to get off on the wrong foot this year.

Ryan was not protected by the Senators ahead of the expansion draft, theScore reports.

EDGE Analysis

According to Sportsnet, there had been some confusion as to whether Ryan has a no-move clause in his contract that would've prevented him from pivoting from the Senators after four seasons. However, apparently the fine print in his contract stipulates that the winger -- who has five years left on his contract valued at a whopping $7.25 million annually -- can indeed head to another club so long as he's kept away from the minors and has a modified no-trade clause present. Ryan finished with just 25 points (13 goals, 12 assists) and a minus-3 rating over 62 games of an injury-riddled 2016-17 campaign. However, he did secure 110 points between the two seasons prior.

Ryan scored on the power play in Tuesday's 2-1 Game 6 win over the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

Things looked like they were getting away from Ottawa when Evgeni Malkin opened the scoring early in the second, but Ryan did well to provide the answer less than 10 minutes later. Three of Ryan's six goals this postseason have come on the power play, surpassing the two extra man tallies he managed in 62 regular season games. His six points through six games this series suggest the veteran winger should be a major factor in Game 7.

Ryan collected two assists during Wednesday's Game 3 win over Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

This was the second multi-point game of the series and fourth of the playoffs for Ryan, as he's following up the worst regular season of his career with an impressive postseason run. The 30-year-old winger is up to five goals and 13 points through 15 games, and his three game-winning tallies lead the playoffs. Ryan's strong postseason could translate into a bounce-back 2017-18 campaign, too.

Ryan scored the overtime winner Saturday in Game 1 against the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

Ryan showcased his speed as he blew by Olli Maata and beat Marc-Andre Fleury with a quick forehand-backhand move. This was the fifth goal of the playoffs for Ryan, who has netted three game-winners. The former Duck also set up linemate Jean-Gabriel Pageau for the opening goal on the night. With 11 points in 13 games, Ryan is having a fantastic postseason and will need to keep up this production if Ottawa hopes to advance onto the Stanley Cup Final.
