RYAN RUSSELL  Canada

Open print friendly window (pop-up) views: 55986

BIRTHYEAR 1987-05-02 BIRTHPLACECaroline, AB, CAN
AGE 30 NATION Canada
POSITION LW/RW SHOOTS L
HEIGHT 178 cm / 5'10" WEIGHT 75 kg / 165 lbs
STATUS Retired
NHL DRAFT 2005 round 7 #211 overall by New York Rangers
HIGHLIGHTS
1-time ECHL Kelly Cup Champion 1

A small forward, Russell has very good work ethic and is an excellent skater. He possesses decent hockey IQ and on-ice vision as well as solid offensive skills. Russell's size is a major weakness and while he compensates for it with a great attitude, he is unlikely to reach a regular scoring role in the NHL. (Matias Strozyk, 2011)

Twin Brother: Kris Russell
