”from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

Three days before the NHL trade deadline, the Detroit Red Wings announced that the 34-year-old winger is done for the season with an “upper body” injury.

While Ryan has been dealing with back issues, putting him on the shelf is a torn triceps that require surgery.

The second overall pick in 2005 (behind Sidney Crosby) should be ready to get back at it in plenty of time for next season, but in what jersey — or even if there will be one offered him — he does not know.

“Obviously gutted the way things ended prematurely this season for myself,” Ryan, who hasn’t played since March 28, told Postmedia on Friday. “I was hoping to put things off until the season ended, but no way around surgery, so now my focus shifts to getting healthy and seeing what’s next.

“Whether it’s another year in the league or not, my goals don’t change … get healthy, get stronger and see if there’s an opportunity to go back to work.
