Ryan had an assist and two hits in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Flames. Ryan hasn't found twine this season, limited to just seven assists in 43 games. He's averaged 12:45 per game, and his lack of physicality and shot production gives him minimal fantasy value.
Ryan picked up an assist in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Predators. Ryan has struggled to get playing time recently, sitting out 18 straight contests spanning all of February and most of March. Ryan has only earned six assists in 36 games this year, and while he's appeared in the Sharks' last two games, he's only likely to stay in the lineup until one of Radim Simek (leg) or Erik Karlsson (groin) returns.
Ryan recorded an assist and two blocked shots Saturday's 4-1 win over the Islanders. Ryan's assist is his first point of 2018-19. His 15:11 of ice time in the contest was a season-high and he should continue to log heavy minutes alongside Brent Burns, but the 25-year-old's lack of offensive polish significantly caps his fantasy upside.
Ryan made his NHL playoff debut Wednesday night, with the rookie defenseman logging 11:55 of ice time en route to a 4-0 win over Vegas in Game 4. Ryan failed to mark the scoresheet, but he did exactly what veteran Paul Martin couldn't in Games 1 and 3: play mistake-free hockey. There's a good chance that the Sharks will stick with this arrangement as long as it culminates in wins.
Ryan (upper body) is healthy enough to play, but it won't happen Thursday night against the Predators, NHL.com reports. Perhaps the rookie defenseman will be fit to play in Saturday's road clash with the Golden Knights. While he hasn't tilted the scales in the fantasy realm, we wouldn't overlook the fact that Ryan has been a full-time player in his first NHL campaign.
