Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "He’s a player I looked forward to watching this year, but with every viewing he slid down my list. I actually spoke to quite a few NHL Scouts who said exactly the same thing." (Mark Edwards, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Strong skater and handles the puck well on the rush. He has good hands at speed and has the ability to gain the offensive zone and set up for opportunities.. Despite his speed and puck skills, if defenders caught him, he's was too easy to knock off the puck. He is nearly six feet tall, however, he has a very slender frame and needs to put on significant amount of muscle before being able to play at the pro level. He has skating and hands, but his hockey sense was questionable at times this season. ... Very rare to see him deliver a bodycheck. Ryan has some tools that are the level of NHL prospects, but lacks the size and appears to lack the hockey sense in order to put it all together." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
