|Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
After finishing his senior year at Michigan, Ryznar joined the Albany River Rats as a checking line winger. During that
first pro season, he received a bit of a surprise: he got the call-up to New Jersey in January. Injuries and suspensions
were prominent for the Devils at that point in time, so that's why he got the call. He would only see a handful of games,
as well as ice time, as he was seeing fourth line minutes when he suited up.
He would continue playing in the Devils' system (Lowell) for 2 more seasons, but was not offered a contract and
became a UFA after the 07-08 season.
He received an invite to the Minnesota Wild's training camp. A couple weeks later, he was reassigned to the Houston
Aeros' camp to try out there, and he would make the team. He saw 77 games for the Wild's AHL team in 08-09.
He only saw one more season of play, that being the following season with the Alaska Aces of the ECHL.
I have no word on what he's done since.
