Observations:

January 2016 – Ramage signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Jackets this summer. It was more of a depth move for the AHL than anything, as he’s only played in one NHL game. In 27 games with the lake Erie Monsters, Ramage has five points in 29 games. Chris Bagwell

October 2014 - Ramage has been assigned to the Adirondack Flames of the AHL. Brad Wilson

March 2013 - Hockey sense and composure are the two most noticeable and endearing qualities of John Ramage’s game. He has average size and nowhere near the elite skills his father (Rob Ramage) possessed. While his dad was chosen first overall and played for 15 seasons in the NHL, John will be hard pressed to become an NHL regular as a Calgary Flame’s fourth round choice.  He has scored an average of 11 points in his first three seasons with the University of Wisconsin and is on a similar pace in his senior year. His steady play and impressive hitting ability may lead to a future role as a 6th or 7th defenseman, although it remains to be seen if he can continue his physical play in a professional league at his size. He serves as the captain for the badgers and his leadership skills may also help him in his pursuit of an NHL career. Sheldon Curtis

 

Fantasy Outlook: D

Ramage is more of a shutdown defenseman and likely won’t contribute much in most fantasy formats.
