2020 NHL off-season primer: A small window for big moves? - Sportsnet.ca

Usually the NHL off-season has a few weeks of build up. When the Stanley Cup is wrapped up in early June the combine would have just happened, the draft would be a couple weeks away and free agency another week after that. There’s time for rumours to build and trades to come together, but this off-season feels more like a sprint.

It’s going to come fast and it’s going to come all at once.

OK, maybe that’s a bit over the top. But there is going to be a lot of stuff happening in a very short amount of time.

Ryan placed on waivers, contract to be bought out by Senators: report

Ryan, who returned against the Nashville Predators on Feb. 25 and two days later scored a hat trick in his first home game back, a 5-2 win against the Vancouver Canucks, won the Masterton Trophy for perseverance and dedication to hockey.

"While the news this morning came as a bit of a shock, I understand the decision," Ryan told TSN. "The unwavering support in the last year in particular has given me tears on many occasions. … Ottawa will have a special place in our [family's] heart forever."

Seems to be the first time the reigning Masterton Trophy winner has been bought out. Nice of Ottawa to, at best, tell him this morning, shortly before the news broke.
