DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings today agreed to terms with right wing Bobby Ryan on a one-year contract.

Ryan spent the last seven seasons with the Ottawa Senators and has appeared in 833 career NHL games with the Anaheim Ducks and Senators since 2007-08, totaling 555 points (254-301-555) and 443 penalty minutes. The 33-year-old forward and 2015 NHL All-Star has produced 50-or-more points in six of his 13 NHL seasons and is a six-time 20-goal scorer and four-time 30-goal scorer, posting career bests in 2010-11 when he racked up 71 points (34-37-71) in 82 games with Anaheim. Ryan has also skated in 51 career postseason games, notching 32 points (18-14-32) and 18 penalty minutes, ranking second on the Senators with 15 points (6-9-15) in 19 games in Ottawa's run to the 2017 Eastern Conference Final. In 2019-20, Ryan won the Bill Masterton Trophy for perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey after taking a four-month leave of absence from the Senators midseason to enter the NHL/NHLPA player assistance program. Ryan rejoined the Senators on Feb. 27 and totaled eight points (5-3-8) in 24 games, including a hat trick in his first game back with the team in his first home game after returning to the lineup.

A native of Cherry Hill, N.J., Ryan was originally drafted by Anaheim with the second-overall pick in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. He debuted in the NHL by skating in 23 games during the 2007-08 season and was an NHL All-Rookie Team member in his first full campaign the following year after notching 57 points (31-26-57) in 64 games. Ryan also played parts of four seasons in the American Hockey League, totaling 77 points (33-44-77) in 70 games with the Portland Pirates and Iowa Chops between 2005-09, appearing at the 2008 AHL All-Star Game. An alumnus of the Honeybaked AAA Hockey Club, Ryan played his major-junior career with the Owen Sound Attack from 2003-07, where he is the franchise's all-time leading scorer with 325 points (133-192-325) in 249 games. Ryan has represented the United States at three international tournaments, picking up a silver medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics with two points (1-1-2) in six games and racking up seven points (5-2-7) in eight games at the 2012 IIHF World Championship and seven points (3-4-7) in seven games at the 2006 IIHF World Junior Championship.
