Coach Strachan told the Junior Hockey Network that “always hard to make decisions at the cut down date or trade deadline and this one was not an easy one. Ryan is a great person, hard worker and player you could ask anything to do and he would go out and do his best to get it done. Ryan has a couple other opportunities we hope work out for him and we wish him the best of luck in the future.”
