Ryan Dzingel (born March 9, 1992) is an American professional ice hockey forward for the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was drafted by the Senators in the seventh round (204th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

Prior to becoming professional, Dzingel played three seasons with the Ohio State Buckeyes where he was named to the 2013–2014 All-Big Ten First Team and West First-Team All-American.

Playing career[edit]

While playing with the Lincoln Stars in the United States Hockey League, Dzingel was drafted 204th overall by the Ottawa Senators and committed to play for Ohio State University.[1]

On January 10, 2014, Dzingel recorded the first hat trick in Big Ten history to help lead the Ohio State Buckeyes to a 5–3 win over Michigan State.[2] Following an outstanding junior year with the Buckeyes, Dzingel was named to the 2013–14 All-Big Ten First Team.[3] Prior to his senior year, Dzingel signed an entry level contract with the Senators on April 2, 2014 and reported to their American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators, ending his collegiate career.[4]

On December 22, 2015, Dzingel made his NHL debut with Ottawa versus the Florida Panthers as a replacement for injured Bobby Ryan.[5] He scored his first career NHL goal on February 16, 2016, in a 2–1 shootout win over the Buffalo Sabres.[6]

During the 2016–17 season, his first full year with the Senators, Dzingel recorded 14 goals and 32 points in 81 games. On July 21, 2017, the Senators re-signed Dzingel to a two-year, $3.6 million contract worth $1.8 million annually, avoiding arbitration. [7]

Personal life[edit]

Dzingel was born and raised in Chicago to parents Rick and Linda, along with two siblings.[8] His father Rick played baseball growing up, including within the St. Louis Cardinals organization.[9]
