Mark Guy, agent for former Erie Otters captain Ryan O’Reilly, from Newport Sports Management Inc. in Mississauga, Ontario, had little to say Tuesday about his client’s contract situation with the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche.
But Guy did say “there has been zero discussions with Colorado for weeks now.” When asked if a trade is the most viable option to resolve this impasse, Guy said, “You can infer that, I guess, by the fact that we haven’t had any discussions. But likely that’s going to be the outcome, I would say. (That’s) not for sure. Things can always change. But likely that’s going to be the outcome.”
When asked how O’Reilly has handled the situation, Guy said, “Ryan’s good. He’s a player and competitive. He wants to play, but he’s competitive in all aspects of his life.”
Guy declined to comment on any further details.
