Ottawa Senators forward Bobby Ryan is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2014-15 season and general manager Bryan Murray has already begun discussions on a contract extension for the 27-year-old.
Ryan, who had 23 goals and 48 points in 70 games during his first season with the Sens, will make $5.6 million this season before becoming a UFA for the first time in his career.
According to the blog SensChirp, it appears Murray received some help from a fan in Ottawa.
Posted in the comments section, a fan says he had a lengthy discussion with Ryan before getting him to sign a “long term contract extension”.

I’m no agent, but Ryan might want to get some terms down on that deal before putting ink to paper.
