Kings' Joakim Ryan: Headed to LA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan signed a one-year, $725,000 contract with the Kings on Monday, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.

Ryan appeared in 44 games with the Sharks in 2018-19, tallying seven assists while averaging just 12:46 of ice time per contest. The 26-year-old will battle for a spot on the Kings' third pairing during training camp, but he'll likely end up taking on a rotational role as the team's seventh defender.

Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Let go by Sharks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan did not receive a qualifying offer from San Jose ahead of Tuesday's deadline, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

Ryan's time in San Jose featured 19 points in 106 contests. The 26-year-old blueliner will now attempt to secure a contract with another club on the open market, but the fact is Ryan offers little in terms of fantasy production, regardless of what jersey he puts on.

Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Provides apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Collects helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Remains off scoresheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan is stuck in a rut with an eight-game pointless streak.

Ryan is averaging a mere 14:52 of ice time, which is no doubt a factor in the blueliner's point drought. During his slump, the youngster has put just eight pucks on net, making it hard for him to write his name on the scoresheet. Once Marc-Edouard Vlasic (undisclosed) is cleared to return, Ryan could struggle to break into the lineup on a night-to-night basis.

Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Bags apple Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Gets job done for Team Teal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Return put on hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan (upper body) is healthy enough to play, but it won't happen Thursday night against the Predators, 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.

Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Sitting again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Sidelined for at least one week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Sitting out with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Scores first two NHL goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Services requested
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Fires off two shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Called up from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan was promoted from AHL San Jose on Thursday.

In addition to replacing Paul Martin (ankle) on the 23-man roster, Ryan appears to be in line to take Martin's spot on the top pairing alongside Brent Burns. Last season with the Barracuda, the 24-year-old Ryan notched 10 goals and 39 helpers and should be able to offer some offensive upside.

June 18, 2017 02:32 AM
Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Re-signed by Sharks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

March 6, 2017 10:32 PM
Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Reassigned Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

March 4, 2017 10:40 PM
Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Called up from AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan was recalled from the AHL on Saturday, Curtis Pashelka of the Bay Area News Group reports.

The 23-year-old has yet to play a game in the NHL. He was called up earlier this season but didn't see any action. That could turn out to be the case once again.

February 10, 2017 11:30 PM
Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Reassigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan was demoted to AHL San Jose on Friday.

Ryan returns to the minors for more seasoning after not drawing into a game during this stint with the big club. Tim Heed was recalled to the NHL in a corresponding move. Ryan will likely only have the opportunity to return if there is a major injury to one of the Sharks' defensemen.

February 6, 2017 06:05 PM
Sharks' Joakim Ryan: Recalled by big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan was recalled from AHL San Jose on Monday.

Ryan has yet to get his first taste of NHL action, but a solid campaign with the team's AHL affiliate thus far led to his first career recall Monday. Through 39 contests with AHL San Jose, he's notched 25 points (five goals, 20 assists), but it remains to be seen whether he will crack the lineup in his stint with the Sharks.
