FFB: Do you have any colleges that you are currently interested in committing to?
Ryan: As of now I just want to focus on playing well and giving my team the best chance to win every night I am in the net. The college aspect will take care of itself.
FFB: What is your favorite TV show? Favorite movie? Favorite music?
Ryan: TV Show: Entourage and the Sopranos. Movie: The Hangover. Music: I enjoy just about everything.
FFB: What other sports do you like to watch/play?
Ryan: I enjoy watching football and college basketball during March Madness
FFB: Did any one player stand out as the "most" welcoming guy when you arrived here?
Ryan: Every player on the Force made me feel at home and welcomed me immediately when I entered the locker room for the first time.
FFB: At what age did you decide to become a goalie? Did you play other positions?
Ryan: At age 6 I played my first ever hockey game as a goalie and loved it! Been playing the position ever since.
FFB: Do you have any brothers or sisters? If so, do they play hockey or excel in other things?
Ryan: I have a younger sister and she is an excellent volleyball player for her high school in Colorado!
FFB: As a goalie, are you superstitious? What are your pre-game rituals? How about your on-ice routines?
Ryan: Not very superstitious in general. I do get dressed from left to right and I play soccer before every game. On the ice I always make a star in my net during the game to allow me to stay focused and on my angles.
