Ryan Shannon

Shannon returns as healthy scratch

News: Senators C Ryan Shannon, who missed Tuesday's game with the flu, was recovered in time for Thursday's game against the Hurricanes. However, he was made a healthy scratch by coach Cory Clouston.
Analysis: Shannon doesn't have a point in 10 games following the Olympic break, so it's not surprising he was put in the press box. The flu can't be blamed for his recent struggles since Shannon has been in a funk all season. He has minimal Fantasy appeal when healthy.

Shannon sidelined by the flu

News: Senators C Ryan Shannon was scratched from Tuesday's game against the Capitals because of the flu. He is day to day.
Analysis: Shannon doesn't have a point in 10 games following the Olympic break. The flu can't be blamed for his recent struggles since Shannon has been in a funk all season. He has minimal Fantasy appeal when healthy.

Shannon nets two assists, plus-2

News: Senators C Ryan Shannon tallied a pair of assists and finished at plus-2 on Wednesday against the Sabres. It was his third multi-assist game of the season.
Analysis: Shannon has moved up to the team's second line with Mike Fisher and Alexei Kovalev in the absence of Nick Foligno, who broke his leg on Saturday against Montreal. Shannon did well earlier in the year when he played alongside Fisher and Kovalev, so this is nothing new. He could be a nice stopgap Fantasy option, if Shannon emerges as a regular multi-point threat.

1/20/2010

Ryan Shannon, RW, TB Shannon has first point in nine games

Ryan Shannon

Shannon has first point in nine games

News: Senators C Ryan Shannon scored a goal during Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks. Shannon made it 2-0 at 12:31 when he redirected Peter Regin's centering pass from the left side beyond Cristobal Huet for his fifth goal. It was his first point in nine games since totaling three assists on Jan. 3.
Analysis: Shannon was a real spark for the Senators in late December and to begin January. We had hope it would be the start of his second-half surge. Unfortunately, Shannon then went back into an offensive lull. Shannon is a low-end Fantasy option until he shows us long-term success.

1/3/2010

Ryan Shannon, RW, TB Shannon has trio of assists

Ryan Shannon

Shannon has trio of assists

News: Senators C Ryan Shannon tallied three assists and finished at plus-4 on Sunday against the Flyers. It was his second multi-assist game of the season. Shannon has four goals and seven points in his last five games.
Analysis: It's great to see Shannon get on a roll since he was great down the stretch for Ottawa in 2008-09. Shannon knows coach Cory Clouston's system well and has the skills to succeed in Ottawa. He is getting some extra scoring chances with Jason Spezza and Daniel Alfredsson sidelined. Still, Shannon is a low-end Fantasy option until he shows us long-term success.

Ryan Shannon, RW, TB Luck is finally on Shannon's side

Ryan Shannon

Luck is finally on Shannon's side

News: Ryan Shannon scored twice for Ottawa during a 4-3 loss to the Avalanche on Wednesday. Shannon opened the scoring with his third goal 8:32 into the first and capped the scoring with his fourth goal 14:09 into the third. Shannon has four goals in the last three games. "All the bounces I missed at the beginning of the year are going my way now. I don't want to talk about it," Shannon said, fearful of jinxing himself.

Ryan Shannon

Shannon scores against Montreal

News: Ottawa C Ryan Shannon scored a goal on Monday in a 4-2 win over the Canadiens. Shannon's goal came on a power play with an assist from Peter Regin. It was Shannon's second goal of the season.
Analysis: Shannon's production has been plain awful this season, with only two goals and five assists halfway through the campaign. He is only worth having active in the deepest of formats unless he can seriously turn things around in the second half of the season.

Ryan Shannon, RW, TB Shannon searching for first goal

Ryan Shannon

Shannon searching for first goal

News: Senators C Ryan Shannon failed to record a point and finished at even in 7:28 of ice time on Thursday against the Flyers. He also spent two minutes in the penalty box. Shannon has no goals on the season and only two points in his last eight games.
Analysis: We are completely stunned by Shannon's poor production in 2009-10. Here is a guy that thrived under coach Cory Clouston in the minors last season and then did the same thing with the Senators when Clouston took over behind the bench. He was expected to contribute on a regular basis this season, but he hasn't even come close. Shannon is not worth using in Fantasy.

Shannon dresses for Monday's game

News: Senators C Ryan Shannon was back in the lineup Monday against the Penguins after missing three games with an upper-body injury. He had no points in 12:39 of ice time.
Analysis: Shannon is a good fit for coach Cory Clouston's system and can be a nice scoring option on the wing. However, he has low-end Fantasy appeal to start the season.

10/12/2009

Ryan Shannon, RW, TB

Ryan Shannon

Shannon will play on Monday

News: The Senators official Web site reports that C Ryan Shannon will return to action Monday after missing a few games with an upper body injury.
Analysis: Shannon was a great spark down the stretch for Ottawa in 2008-09 when Cory Clouston took over as head coach. Shannon's late-season run landed him a spot on the team out of training camp. He has the talent to make some noise in Clouston's system, but just has low-end Fantasy appeal for now.

Shannon out again on Saturday

News: Senators C Ryan Shannon (upper body) was not in the lineup Saturday against the Thrashers. It was the third straight game he missed. He remains day to day.

Ryan Shannon

Shannon keeps streak alive Tuesday

News: Senators C Ryan Shannon tallied two assists and finished at plus-2 during Tuesday's game against the Panthers. He has four goals and four assists during a six-game point streak.
Analysis: Shannon has 18 points (eight goals) in 27 games since his February recall from the minors. He has been productive for coach Cory Clouston since his recall and it's no surprise since Clouston knows Shannon from their days in the AHL. Consider Shannon a low-end Fantasy forward.

3/29/2009

Ryan Shannon, RW, TB Shannon scores in four straight

Ryan Shannon

Shannon scores in four straight

News: Senators C Ryan Shannon scored a goal and finished at plus-1 during Sunday's 3-0 win against the Lightning. Shannon scored at 13:44 on a deflection off a Lightning player. The goal was originally credited to Nick Foligno. But as Shannon slide the puck through the five-hole of goalie Karri Ramo, Matt Lashoff's attempt to clear the puck hit Ramo's leg, sending it back into the net.
Analysis: Shannon has scored in four straight games and has a five-game point streak (four goals, two assists) brewing. He has 16 points (eight goals) in 26 games since his February recall from the minors. He has been productive for coach Cory Clouston since his recall and it's no surprise since Clouston knows Shannon from their days in the AHL. However, Shannon is still no offensive superstar and has low-end Fantasy appeal.

Shannon notches game-winning goal

News: Ryan Shannon snapped a third-period tie, and Alex Auld made 28 saves in a rare start to lead the also-ran Ottawa Senators to a 2-1 victory over the playoff-hopeful New York Rangers on Sunday night. Shannon put Ottawa in front 2-1 at 1:09 of the third after Rangers forward Scott Gomez turned over the puck to Mike Fisher at the Senators blue line. Fisher sent a pass to Nick Foligno, who carried the puck into the Rangers end and dropped it back to Shannon, who cut past Wade Redden and scored his fifth goal.
Analysis: Shannon has two goals and five assists in his last nine games. He has been productive for coach Cory Clouston since his recall from the minors in February. It's no surprise since Clouston knows Shannon from their days in the AHL. However, Shannon is still no offensive superstar and has low-end Fantasy appeal.

Shannon equalizes game Wednesday

News: Ottawa C Ryan Shannon scored a goal against the Lightning on Wednesday, tying the game up at 1-1. The goal came on a power play with assists by Jason Spezza and Daniel Alfredsson.
Analysis: Shannon has seen regular minutes for coach Cory Clouston since his recall in early February. Clouston is familiar with Shannon from their days in the minors and could lean on him down the stretch. However, Shannon has had great success in the minors and marginal wealth in the NHL. Until he becomes a consistent threat, Shannon has low-end Fantasy appeal.

Shannon puts in third goal

Shannon has first two-goal game

News: Ryan Shannon scored twice for the Senators during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Avalanche.

Ryan Smyth rammed in a rebound early in the second period, only to have the Senators tie the game back up at 2 moments later when Shannon scored a power play goal at 4:45. It was the first two-goal game of Shannon's career.
Analysis: Shannon now has nine career goals, three of which are against the Avalanche. He scored for the first time since last March Tuesday. He has seen regular minutes for coach Cory Clouston since his recall in early February. Clouston is familiar with Shannon from their days in the minors and could lean on him down the stretch. However, Shannon has had great success in the minors and marginal wealth in the NHL. Until he becomes a consistent threat, Shannon has low-end Fantasy appeal.

Ryan Shannon

Shannon recalled by Senators

News: The struggling Senators recalled RW Ryan Shannon from the team's American Hockey League affiliate Wednesday. Shannon played two games for Ottawa earlier this season, recording one assist. He is currently tied for Binghamton's scoring lead with 35 points, despite missing 11 games. Shannon won the 2007 Stanley Cup as a member of the Anaheim Ducks, who beat Ottawa in five games.
Analysis: In 82 career NHL games, Shannon has seven goals, 18 assists and 34 penalty minutes. He is not currently worth owning in Fantasy.

Shannon skating hard since demotion

News: Sentors minor leaguer Ryan Shannon has been playing well for Binghamton of the AHL since his demotion from the NHL. Shannon has one goal and eight assists in eight January games for Binghamton. On the season, he has 10 goals and 23 assists in 31 games.
Analysis: Shannon has always been an elite player on the AHL level, but every time he gets his shot in the NHL he messes it up. Shannon could be back with Ottawa at some point this season, but he is not worth the time in Fantasy just yet.

Shannon returns from concussion Wed.

News: Senators C Ryan Shannon returned to the lineup Wednesday against the Thrashers after missing six games with a concussion. He tallied an assist and finished at minus-1 in 7:51 of ice time. He took one shot on net.
Analysis: Shannon was taken out in his first game with the Senators by a nasty elbow from Thomas Pock, but it appears as though he dodged a long-term injury and only missed a few weeks. Shannon was seeing some top-line time before going down with the injury, but he has never been an elite offensive weapon. It's safe to ignore him in Fantasy until further notice.

Shannon skating, still out indefinitely

News: The Sports Xchange reports Senators RW Ryan Shannon has resumed skating, but remains out indefinitely after suffering a concussion when he was elbowed by Islanders D Thomas Pock on Nov. 13.
Analysis: Shannon was seeing some top-line time before going down with the injury, but he has never been an elite offensive weapon and could be out for a long period. It's safe to ignore him in Fantasy until further notice.

Shannon out with concussion

News: NHL.com reports Seantors coach Craig Hartsburg said Friday that forward Ryan Shannon is out indefinitely after suffering a "significant" concussion Thursday against the Islanders. Shannon had to be helped off the ice after going down following a Thomas Pock elbow in the third period.
Analysis: Shannon, recalled from Binghamton of the AHL on Wednesday, played with Jason Spezza and Dany Heatley on the Senators' top line Thursday before getting injured. Shannon has bounced around in his NHL career, but has limited offensive and Fantasy appeal when healthy.

Ryan Shannon, RW, TB Shannon helped to locker room

Ryan Shannon

Shannon helped to locker room

News: Islanders defenseman Thomas Pock was given a major penalty Thursday against the Senators and a game misconduct 15:44 into the third period for elbowing Ottawa's Ryan Shannon. Shannon, who made his Senators debut, had to be helped off the ice to the dressing room. Shannon did not have a point in 12:59 of ice time and finished at even.
Analysis: Shannon, recalled from Binghamton of the AHL on Wednesday, played with Jason Spezza and Dany Heatley on the Senators' top line. Shannon, a member of the Stanley Cup champion Anaheim Ducks in 2007, was traded to Vancouver later that summer and spent most of last season dealing with knee injuries. Ottawa then picked him up via trade in early September. The speedy 5-foot-9 forward finished with five goals and 13 points in 27 games for the Canucks and has 24 points in 80 career NHL games. Shannon will likely bounce all over the place for Ottawa when healthy, but remains just a low-end Fantasy forward.
