Ducks GM: Ryan off the trading block

Bobby Ryan is off the block.

Anaheim Ducks general manager Bob Murray assured Ryan that he will not be traded, according to Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos.

Murray said the Ducks forward is off the trading block and Ryan no longer wants to be moved from Anaheim.

The news comes less than 24 hours after the Ducks fired head coach Randy Carlyle and replaced him with former Washington Capitals bench boss Bruce Boudreau.

Ryan was not seeing eye-to-eye with Carlyle, after the coach demoted Ryan to the third line during Monday’s practice.

Boudreau has been known as a players’ coach and could be a good fit with a player with the offensive abilities of Ryan.

The Ducks were shopping Ryan around the league, an NHL executive told Kypreos earlier this week.

Ryan has been underperforming this season, with only 12 points in 24 games.

The Ducks currently sit in 14th place in the Western Conference.
