Playing career[edit]

Stavanger Oilers[edit]

As the league's top point scorer in the regular season (37 goals and 76 points in 44 games), Ryan led Stavanger Oilers to the team's first ever regular season championship. With points in every home game of the regular season and a 13-game pointstreak(home and away games), he shattered several team records. In a game against Frisk Tigers on December 30, 2011, Ryan scored 6 points (3 goals + 3 assists) and tied the team record for most points in one game.

The Oilers finished the regular season with a record breaking 112 points and earned the No. 1 seed heading into the playoffs. Stavanger swept both Rosenborg IHK (Quarter-final) and Lillehammer IK (Semi-final) in four games, earning the club's third consecutive playoff final appearance. On April 13, 2012, the Oilers won game six of the finals and became Norwegian Champions. Ryan, with 9 goals and 21 points, finished 3rd on the league leader board for the playoffs.

On April 9, 2012, the Norwegian Ice Hockey Association awarded Ryan The Golden Helmet, an award given to the league's top point scorer. He was also appointed the Right Wing on The Team of the Year, a fictional team put together after votes from all the players in the league, alongside with Stavanger Oilers Defenceman Tim Kunes.

April 22 Ryan signed a contract with HC Red Ice of the Swiss National League B.

On January 15, 2013, he signed a contract until the end of season with EHC Biel of the Swiss National League A
