On his 47th birthday, a former Habs first-round pick throws down the gauntlet in the ECHL
The story of the day in the hockey world was the return of Terry Ryan. At 47, the former first-round pick of the Canadiens in 1995 played his first ECHL game since 2002-2003, on his birthday.

For the occasion, in the uniform of the Newfoundland Growlers, he faced the Adirondack Thunder.

His team lost 6-2, but Ryan still made his mark.

He dropped the gloves.

You be the judge, but I think he lost the fight.

After the match, the striker offered a generous press conference lasting nearly 14 minutes.

It takes courage to do what he’s done, and he fully deserves the attention he’s currently getting.

I don’t know how long the Terry Ryan experience will last, but I’m sure he’ll enjoy his time in Newfoundland.

Ryan hadn’t played professionally since the 2002-2003 season. That season, he played with the Cincinnati Cyclones in the ECHL. He collected nine points in 12 games.

And in the NHL, the Canadiens have not collected a point in eight games in Montreal.
