Observations:

December 2016 – Joakim Ryan enters his second year in the AHL after a solid rookie campaign. He has been paired with Tim Heed and the two are firmly entrenched on the San Jose Barracuda’s top line and top power play unit as well. Ryan’s quietly responsible play and subtle points that continue to pile up remind of Marc-Edouard Vlasic in terms of understated ability in all three zones. Ryan has been especially impressive in defensive zone exits and carrying the play up ice. He could be yet another late-round gem to join the San Jose blueline in the foreseeable future.

Fantasy Outlook: B-

Ryan’s responsible, two-way style is desirable to get and hold down an NHL job. Has the vision and first-pass ability to contribute on the scoresheet as well.
