Earlier today, TSN’s Bob MacKenzie reported Michael Ryan was placed on waivers. The 29-year-old left wing sustained a concussion during pre-season and remains out of the lineup since. It was rumored that Ryan would need a conditioning assignment before returning to the team but now it appears he is officially deemed expendable.
Similar to Jeremy Reich and PA Parenteau, most fans regard the Boston native as a career minor leaguer. Rightfully so, as the former Dallas Stars selection played parts of five distinct seasons in the minors. Similar to Reich and Parenteau I expect Ryan to clear and be reassigned to Albany.
Over 83 career NHL games, Ryan has seven goals and eight assists with the Hurricanes and Buffalo Sabres.
