Ryan played collegiate hockey for the NCAA Division I Cornell Big Red men's ice hockey team which competes in the ECAC Hockey conference. In his junior year, Ryan's outstanding play was rewarded with a selection to the 2013–14 All-Ivy League First Team.
At the completion of his senior season, Ryan was signed an entry-level contract with the San Jose Sharks on March 26, 2015. He was then assigned to then AHL affiliate, the Worcester Sharks, to complete the 2014–15 season.
He signed a new two-year contract extension with the Sharks on June 19, 2017.
