SB Nation "I am not around the Buffalo Sabres much. Aside from one game I watched from a press box and a few games I’ve watched on TV, I am basically completely foreign to them this season. But I still know a few things: Sabres forward Ryan O’Reilly was charged with impaired driving after he crashed..." March 28

Buffalo News "Ryan O’Reilly waited three weeks to skate, the longest stretch of inactivity he can remember in his NHL career. Once he got on the ice, he wasn’t leaving until they kicked him off. The Sabres center skated Friday for the first time since breaking his foot Feb. 19. He and injured defenseman Cody..." March 12
The Score "Ryan O'Reilly missed Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins with a lower-body injury, and word out of Buffalo is the Sabres center will be out for an extended period of time." February 22
Coach Bylsma says Bailey will play; Ryan O'Reilly will be out today with a lower-body injury.
Buffalo News "Ryan O’Reilly’s hockey stick has gone cold, but the lumber he uses for self-flagellation is on fire. The Sabres’ lone All-Star is prone to beating himself up in the best of times. This is far from that. He has no goals and a minus-10 rating over the last 11 games, so he broke out the whuppin’..." February 06
The Score "It turns out John Scott wasn't the only player who received an apology from Jeremy Roenick on Sunday.

Denver Post "Post-trade reunion games — the first time veterans go against their former teams — are common in the NHL, but Wednesday night's Buffalo Sabres-Colorado Avalanche matchup at the Pepsi Center seems to have extraordinary intrigue.

Buffalo News "The Sabres acquired Ryan O'Reilly and signed him to the largest contract in team history because they felt he could do it all. So far, he's proving them right. *O'Reilly is fifth in the NHL in points with 13, recording four goals and nine assists. He's on pace for 29 goals, 67 assists and 96..." November 01
NBC Sports "It’s almost odd that it took so long for an Avalanche player to at least mildly criticize Ryan O'Reilly. To many, “ROR” leaving Colorado was a matter of when, not if, ever since that strange offer sheet drama fizzled out back in 2013. Matt Duchene provided somewhat spicy remarks – at least..." October 03
The Score "Ryan O'Reilly's day in court has been pushed back once again. The Buffalo Sabres center's impaired driving case was adjourned to Oct. 22, according to Jane Sims of The London Free Press.

Denver Post "This has been obvious since the Avalanche's season ended ... or even earlier: Colorado's top priority in free agency this summer will be landing a defenseman to join Erik Johnson in the top pairing or to anchor the second. Joe Sakic and Patrick Roy reconfirmed that in their Thursday conference..." June 22
Pro Hockey Talk "It’s not often that a talented 24-year-old center is expected to be traded. But that’s the case with Colorado’s Ryan O’Reilly, whose tenure with the Avalanche has been marked by contentious contract negotiations with the club. Last summer, O’Reilly signed a two-year, $12 million deal that left..." June 17
Denver Post "At the Avalanche-Winnipeg game Thursday, I was among three reporters speaking with GM Joe Sakic, and I used his comments in the featurized game story that night and also in a supplementary blog.

Pro Hockey Talk "The Colorado Avalanche might still trade Ryan O’Reilly, but it probably won’t happen before Monday’s 3:00 p.m. deadline. That’s because GM Joe Sakic hopes the 24-year-old forward will still factor into their long-term plans. “Ryan is part of our core,” Sakic told ESPN.com. “My intention is that..." March 01
Nichols on Hockey "“I think they’ve been kind of disappointed in some of their guys. I hear O’Reilly’s name is kind of out there. I wouldn’t be surprised if Colorado is getting to the point where they’re kind of saying, ‘Maybe we have to make a decision on him, and maybe it’s time.’ “They need defensemen really..." January 13
Denver Post "Ryan O’Reilly centered the Avalanche’s best line Sunday against Columbus in Colorado. His blue-collar work set up several chances for Jarome Iginla and Alex Tanguay. That included one shining opportunity early in the game, just minutes after Iginla’s unassisted opener 30 seconds in. O’Reilly..." January 05
Yahoo! Sports "The split between center Ryan O’Reilly and the Colorado Avalanche is inevitable. Too much vitriol under the bridge in previous contract squabbles. He’s signed through 2016 at a pretty good clip; after that, it’s UFA status and Denver in the rearview mirror. So with the Avs nine points out of a..." December 29

Ryan O'Reilly will play tonight #Avs
Ryan O'Reilly (shoulder) and Nate Guenin (ankle) will not play tonight vs. Ottawa. Both are still listed day to day.
Denver Post "If the Avalanche wants to keep Ryan O'Reilly, it will have to pay him $6.5 million, at least for the 2014-15 season. Under the rules of the NHL's collective bargaining agreement, for a team to retain the rights of a potential restricted free agent, it must offer a contract equal in salary to the..." January 05
Denver Post "Ryan O'Reilly doesn't play hockey with an edge. He's a finesse player, and his penalties are of the accidental variety. But deep down, the Avalanche forward believes he has an edge over most opponents. He believes in namaste, yoga's most popular spoken word that, translated roughly, means "the..." November 06
Denver Post "Ryan O'Reilly has taken sticks to the face and there undoubtedly is evidence beneath his shaggy beard. But the young Avalanche forward professes not to have emotional scars from his holdout during the lockout-shortened 2013 season. Rather he's more concerned with adjusting to switching from his..."

Denver Post "The Avalanche changed up one of its top two lines at practice Tuesday. Time will tell if things stay that way. But it was a big change by coach Patrick Roy in moving veteran Steve Downie onto a line with Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly. Previously P.A. Parenteau had been on the line with..." September 17
Denver Post "What was your reaction to Patrick Roy saying you’ll move from center to left wing: “I’m excited about it. I’m looking at it as a good new challenge for me. I mean I’ll be playing with two great players (Matt Duchene at center and P.A. Parenteau at right wing). I’ve played on the wing before with..." August 13
NHL.com "The arrival of No. 1 draft choice Nathan MacKinnon created a logjam at center for the Colorado Avalanche -- one that new coach Patrick Roy said last month will be resolved by moving Ryan O'Reilly to left wing.
