Who is Terry Ryan of the Newfoundland Growlers for those who don’t know?

Terry Ryan is a former professional hockey player who recently made a surprise return to professional hockey with the Newfoundland Growlers, a team in the ECHL, on his 47th birthday. This marked his first game of professional hockey in 21 years.

Ryan, a native of Mount Pearl, Newfoundland, was the 8th overall selection by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft.

Ryan’s return to the ice was not a publicity stunt. The Growlers were dealing with a depleted roster due to illness and needed players. As per Hockey Canada, players who play in a professional game after January 10 are ineligible for the remainder of the amateur season, which meant that the Growlers’ usual emergency call-ups were not available.

Ryan, who still skates 4-5 times a week and plays a lot of ball hockey, was ready to help.

In his comeback game, Ryan fought with the Adirondack Thunder’s Zach Walker, a 25-year-old former Boston College player. Despite the Growlers’ 6-2 loss, Ryan’s return was celebrated by the crowd of more than 4,000 people, who gave him a standing ovation.

In addition to his hockey career, Ryan has gained a following as an actor, playing senior hockey player Ted Hitchcock in the Crave series Shoresy.

He also appears in the Canadian television comedy series ‘Shoresy’ as Ted Hitchcock and has a popular podcast. He is the author of the book ‘Tales of a First-Round Nothing: My Life as an NHL Footnote’, which was published in 2014.
