Ryan scored the first two goals of his NHL career and was a plus-3 in Saturday's win over the Oilers. Ryan has been logging heavy minutes for the Sharks and is sporting a tidy plus-10 rating. The rookie was a solid two-way rearguard in the AHL and his strong play has carried over into the NHL. Ryan has nine points through 46 games and could be worth a look in some deeper leagues.
Ryan was brought up from AHL San Jose on Monday, per the official AHL transaction list. Ryan has spent the majority of the season in the majors, notching three assists and 39 blocked shots while averaging 16:39 of ice time in 24 games. Ryan will likely compete for the Sharks' sixth defense slot while up with the big club.
Ryan threw two shots on goal and blocked one shot in 18:30 of ice time during Wednesday's 3-1 win over Arizona. Ryan is a strong two-way defenseman and has notched two points in 17 games in 2017-18 after posting an impressive 49 in 65 in the AHL last year.
Ryan was re-signed by the Sharks on Saturday, CSN Bay Area reports. Ryan has yet to crack the NHL ranks, but provided some surprising production for AHL San Jose this season, notching 49 points over 65 games. He will likely start 2017-18 back in the minors, but could be a candidate to eventually crack the roster should injuries occur.
Ryan was reassigned to the San Jose Barracuda of the AHL on Monday. A four-year performer at Cornell University, the 23-year-old defenseman has racked up an impressive 33 points in 48 AHL games this season. The Sharks were carrying nine defenders while Ryan was on the roster which prevented him from cracking the lineup during his stint with the big club, but he could be a depth option moving forward.
