The Ducks are dealing with a shaky present following a bad home loss to St. Louis but at some point this season or afterward they’ll have to address their future with Bobby Ryan.
ryanart1Ryan is making $765,000 in the final year of his original three-year entry level contract. There have not been any discussions between the winger and Ducks management but Ryan’s agent, Mark Guy, said his client is open to getting an extension done during the season.
“I don’t know if there’s any kind of imminent time line to it,” Guy said.
The 22-year-old Ryan can become a restricted free agent in July if a deal isn’t worked out before then. Naturally this season is important as the Ducks wonder if he can follow up his 31-goal, 57-point rookie campaign that made him a Calder Trophy finalist.
General Manager Bob Murray would not comment on any contract discussions with Ryan, though he did say that he wants to see what the big winger does in his second full season.
