2019 Fantasy Outlook
Don't let the bottom-six usage fool you -- Ryan has recorded a respectable 38 points in each of his last two seasons. He also went plus-21 with seven power-play points and four shorthanded points in 2018-19. Ryan can play on any line under coach Bill Peters, and that versatility allows him to be far more productive than most checking-line centers. Fantasy owners can expect the 32-year-old to top 35 points for a third straight season in 2019-20, with five to eight of those tallies coming on the man advantage. Ryan isn't much of a physical player -- he's only topped 50 hits once during his first three full NHL campaigns -- so his value outside of standard formats will depend on which categories are counted.

Gets on scoresheet with assist

Ryan notched an assist in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Jets in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.
ANALYSIS
Ryan picked up a helper on a Sean Monahan empty-net tally, assuring the former wouldn't be held off the scoresheet for the entire series. The 33-year-old Ryan added four shots and an even plus-minus rating in four games, mostly skating as the fourth-line center.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
After three seasons with the Hurricanes where he scored a combined 67 points in 147 games, (primarily in a bottom-six role), Ryan signed as a free agent with the Flames in July, inking a new three-year, $3.1 million contract. With the Flames, Ryan is reunited with Bill Peters, who was Ryan's coach for all three of his seasons in Carolina. Looking ahead, Ryan is expected to fill a similar checking-line role in Calgary, lining up behind Sean Monahan and Matthew Tkachuk as the team's third-line center.
After spending over a decade playing at various levels outside the NHL, including the AHL, WHL and Europe, the undrafted Ryan finally landed a full-time gig with the Hurricanes last season, playing in 67 games and scoring 29 points in a mostly third-line role. Fittingly, Ryan was nominated as a finalist for the NHL’s Bill Masterton trophy for perseverance and dedication to hockey, and was eventually re-signed by the Hurricanes to a one-year, $1.42 million contract in July. Ryan is expected to reprise his checking-line center role once again in Carolina next season and is a good late-round draft candidate in the deepest fantasy formats.
