Ryan O’Reilly and KHL Metallurg have reportedly mutually agreed to terminate his contract, according to The Denver Post.

This will give Metallurg time to sign a replacement before that window closes on January 31.
However, O’Reilly also reportedly “aggravated” a foot injury in his last KHL contest and it’s not clear how serious that is. Dmitry Chesnokov on Twitter “O’Reilly and his KHL club terminated his contract. He is negotiating a return to the NHL.” O’Reilly is a restricted free agent and this could signal that the Colorado Avalanche are close to re-signing O’Reilly.
