Ryley Grantham (born January 7, 1988) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre who is under contract to the Missouri Mavericks of the ECHL. He was selected by the Calgary Flames in the 6th round (168th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.[1]

Before his professional career, Grantham played in the Tier II Junior "A" Alberta Junior Hockey League for the Brooks Bandits from 2004 to 2006 and then joined the Moose Jaw Warriors of the Western Hockey League. The Warriors traded him to the Kelowna Rockets in his last year of Junior Hockey in 2008-09 in exchange for Dylan Hood and a 5th Round Pick in the 2011 WHL Bantam Draft.[1]

On September 20, 2014, Grantham agreed to a contract with the Missouri Mavericks.[2] He was later invited to participate in AHL affiliate, the Chicago Wolves 2014 training camp on October 5, 2014, before returning to Missouri.[3]

On October 7, 2014, it was announced that the Central Hockey League had folded and had joined the ECHL, nullifying Grantham's Central Hockey League contract with the team.[4][5] On October 9, 2014, Grantham re-signed with the Mavericks under an ECHL contract.[6]
