Ryan joins Duchene on Senators' IR
The Ottawa Senators have placed winger Bobby Ryan on injured reserve, one day after center Matt Duchene was added to the list.
Both were hurt during Thursday night's loss to the Montreal Canadiens. Duchene left in the second period, grabbing his leg while skating off the ice. The Senators described it as a "lower body" injury and said Saturday he's week to week.
Ryan left in the first period after sustaining a concussion. There's no timetable for his return.
"When you lose high-end players, guys that are huge parts of your team, when you lose one it's big, when you lose two it's gigantic," coach Guy Boucher said Saturday morning.
So far this season, the 27-year-old Duchene has 34 points (12 goals, 22 assists) in 29 games and a 19.4 shooting percentage.
Ryan, 31, has six goals and 12 assists in 29 games.
The Senators are in last place in the NHL Atlantic Division.
