Kujawinski has not developed as quickly as hoped after a promising OHL career. While still young, his star seems to be fading

February 2018 – After an early season trade to Tucson, Kujawinski struggled playing in just 19 games with no goals and only two assists. He was moved to Columbus at the NHL trade deadline where he will have a third attempt to get his pro career going. At this pont it looks like he is having a hard time holding onto a AHL job and is a very long shot for the NHL.
May 2017 – Kujawinski’s AHL ice time increased as he ultimately skated in 32 Albany contests, but none in the postseason. His six goals and six assists proved a slight points-per-game increase over 2015-16, from 0.36 to 0.38, but the 22-year-old still has a long way to go before contending for an NHL role. He dealt with a variety of injuries last campaign, including a late-year concussion which surely didn’t help matters. Kevin Wickersham
December 2016 – The 22 year-old Kujawinski has not been overly productive at the AHL level, having seen ice time with Albany in just seven games thus far in 2016-17 with no goals, four assists, and seven shots-on-goal. This follows a 59-game initial campaign in which Kujawinski totaled six goals and 15 assists. Again, there is still time to display NHL-level promise, but it has not recently been evident. – Kevin Wickersham
January 2016 – Once a highly touted prospect and a projected first rounder in the 2013 draft, Kujawinski has failed to live up to expectations. While the talent and size are all there, he still struggles with consistency. It has always been his Achilles heel and the problem continues in his 2ndseason for the Albany Devils. In 27 games Ryan Kujawinski has three goals and five assists. He is still young so there is a decent chance that his production can grow but only time will tell. Justin Nobre
