Observations:

May, 2015 – Son of the Hall of Famer Ray Bourque, Ryan was drafted by NYR in the 2009 Entry Draft. As a junior he won two World Championship gold medals with the US National team. He spent the last four seasons with Rangers' minor league team in the AHL. He plays a speedy, energetic game and he is good on the forecheck. Hartford uses him in every situation. Last April, the Rangers rewarded his play with a late season call-up, and he had his NHL debut. He has a chance to crack the Rangers lineup in the fall, but his upside is not much better than a fourth-line, complementary winger at the NHL level. Jozsef Kurtosi
