Ottawa Senators To Buy Out Bobby Ryan, Could the Winnipeg Jets Sign Him? (Winnipeg Jets Offseason)

Ryan released the following statement Friday afternoon, per TSN’s Ian Mendes.

“While the news this morning came as a bit of a shock, I understand the decision. The Sens are an upcoming young team with so many bright years ahead of them. I’m excited to follow along as a fan of all the young players with the rest of you,” Ryan said.

“Ottawa will have a special place in our families heart forever. See you around the ice.”

Ryan has two seasons remaining on his current deal, which includes a $7.25-million cap hit per campaign. The 33-year-old winger is owed $11 million in salary over the next two seasons.

Ryan will count for $3.83 million per season on Ottawa’s books for the next two years following the buyout, and $1.83 million per season for the two years after, according to CapFriendly.
