O'Reilly's status

UPDATE: Discussions regarding a new contract are ongoing.

The Denver Post reports the agent for unsigned center Ryan O'Reilly said Monday he is continuing to negotiate with the Avalanche.

The restricted free agent might stay in Russia if a new deal isn't worked out. And NHL trade is also a possibility.


It appears Ryan O'Reilly will continue to play in Russia until there's a new contract in place with the Colorado Avalanche.

The Denver Post reports the restricted free agent might not be signed when training camps open this weekend. But it's "believed the Avs and O'Reilly began talking Tuesday".
