Around the time of the NHL Draft, Bobby Ryan said that he was ready to move on from the Ducks after hearing his name mentioned in many different trade scenarios.
Ryan said “I gotta be honest with you. At this point, I don’t care. Move me … because it’s just tough going to the rink every day knowing that if something goes wrong, you’re going to be the guy moved.”
Today, Ryan spoke with the OC Register’s Eric Stephens about those comments and said that he regretted making them right after and that he has not asked to be traded by the Ducks.
Ryan added that he didn’t hear from the Ducks after those comments were made and he was just frustrated by repeatedly being asked about the topic.
