Calgary Flames 07-08


Recommended Posts

Dan Ryder, brother of former Habs' player Michael, is at the Flames prospects' camp.


Yeah so much for those rumours last year about drugs and stuff.

"A pleasant surprise, Ryder agreed to meet the media. Soft-spoken, the 21-year-old explained that last winter's one-way trip out of Quad City — after having played only six AHL games — was because he was burned out. (Not his words, but certainly his meaning after back-to-back nine-month seasons, with 44 playoff games, in the OHL.)

What he did say was:

* "I just needed some time away from hockey — I still wasn't ready for a full season. That was my decision — I'm glad I did it. Two long seasons in a row, two short summers. It was just hockey every day. I wasn't ready for a full season. I feel ready for a full season now."

It is nice to him back and ready to go.
