  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Nets goal Wednesday

    Ryan scored a goal on five shots in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Ryan has gone from being a purely defensive forward to picking up two goals and an assist over his last four games. The 36-year-old probably won't sustain this burst of offense for long, but he's starting to earn more ice time with his strong play. For the season, Ryan has seven goals, five assists, 54 shots on net, 30 hits, 29 blocked shots, 20 PIM and a plus-1 rating through 47 outings.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Pockets helper in win

    Ryan logged an assist in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.

    Ryan helped out on a Ryan McLeod goal in the first period. With a goal and an assist in his last two contests, Ryan is quickly making his recent nine-game point drought a distant memory. The 36-year-old forward continues to play more of a defensive role, though he's managed to produce 11 points, 45 shots on net, 30 hits, 29 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating through 45 appearances this season.

The goal ended a nine-game point drought for Ryan. The 36-year-old forward has mostly played in a bottom-six role this season, where he's amassed six goals, four assists, 44 shots on net, 29 hits, 28 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating through 44 appearances.

    Ryan set up Darnell Nurse on the opening tally at 5:07 of the first period. The assist was Ryan's fourth point in the last six games -- he's making the most of bottom-six minutes in December, though it likely isn't enough to boost his fantasy stock significantly. The veteran forward is up to eight points, 31 shots on net, 21 hits, 19 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating through 31 contests overall.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Gets first goal in win

    Ryan scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Predators.

    Ryan gave the Oilers a 4-1 lead in the first period with his first goal of the year. The 35-year-old has been limited to a small role on the fourth line so far -- this was the third time in nine games he's exceeded 10 minutes of ice time. He's up to two points with nine shots on net, eight blocked shots, seven hits, four PIM and a plus-1 rating.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Nabs first assist

    Ryan recorded an assist, two blocked shots and two PIM in Monday's 6-3 win over the Penguins.

    Ryan set up the Oilers' last goal, a Ryan McLeod tally in the third period. The assist was Ryan's first point in five games this year. The 35-year-old should stay in the lineup when the Oilers don't have a full complement of forwards available due to a tight salary cap situation. That said, Ryan's not much of a scoring threat when playing on the little-used fourth line, so he's not a factor in most fantasy formats.

    Ryan gave the Oilers a 2-0 lead just 6:17 into the game. The tally snapped his 20-game goal drought, and the veteran forward had just six assists in that span while logging bottom-six minutes. Head coach Jay Woodcroft has often deployed Ryan on the third line when using a seven-defensemen lineup, leading to a slight boost in playing time for the 35-year-old. He's at 21 points, 66 shots on net, 34 hits, 33 blocked shots and a minus-4 rating through 70 appearances.

  • Oilers' Derek Ryan: Snags helper in win

    Ryan registered an assist and three shots on goal in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Kings.

    Ryan helped out on a Warren Foegele tally in the second period. The helper snapped a three-game point drought for Ryan, who has been limited to five assists in 16 outings since the start of March. The 35-year-old forward is up to 19 points, 64 shots on net, 30 blocked shots and a minus-3 rating in 65 appearances this season. He's occasionally a healthy scratch, but he should be in the lineup regularly on the road when Josh Archibald isn't allowed to travel to the United States due to cross-border restrictions on unvaccinated players.
