Ryder not part of Canadiens’ offseason plans

It doesn’t look like Michael Ryder’s second stint with the Montreal Canadiens will last longer than this past season.

Ryder’s agent Thane Campbell told Le Journal de Montreal this week that the 33-year-old forward is not part of Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin’s offseason plans.

Ryder, who was orginally drafted by the Canadiens in 1998, is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 5.

He scored 16 goals and 35 points in 43 games with the Canadiens and Dallas Stars this season.
