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.
Ryan (upper body) will not play Monday night against the Blackhawks, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports. The original prognosis on the 24-year-old defenseman was that he'd miss 7-to-10 days, and we're currently on the short side of that timetable. Brendan Dillon and Dylan DeMelo figure to continue holding down the fort on the third pair without Ryan.
Ryan (upper body) will be out of action for a period of 7-10 days, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports. The rookie defenseman missed Saturday's tilt with the Canucks with the injury, and with the timeline given, he looks set to miss at least three more. Expect the Sharks to provide more information on Ryan's condition as he gets closer to a return, but in the meantime, the recently recalled Tim Heed appears set to get a solid run of games on San Jose's blue line.
Ryan will sit out with an upper-body injury Saturday night against the Canucks, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports. The stocky defenseman reportedly will be replaced by Paul Martin, who gets to patrol the blue line with superstar Brent Burns. We consider Ryan day-to-day, at least until more information is disclosed from the team.
