Ryan is expected to join the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League.

The move comes after Ryan played in two exhibition games with BC. The Eagles open the season Sunday at Vermont.

A second-round draft pick of the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs this year, the 6-foot, 204-pound Ryan played two seasons with the U.S. National Team Development Program.

The Spitfires didn’t confirm that Ryan would join their team.

“It’s an interesting situation, but we have no comment,” Spitfires general manager Warren Rychel told The Windsor Star.

Windsor owns Ryan’s rights — it selected him in the seventh round of the 2007 OHL Draft.
