As per "Spittin' Chiclets," the ex-NHL player is set to join the Newfoundland Growlers in the ECHL, facing the Adirondack Thunder. A tweet hinted at the possibility of the 47-year-old suiting up for the game.

This move seems more like a spectacle to grab attention and engage the hockey community and fans of "LetterKenny" and "Shoresy."

While there's concern about the 47-year-old's well-being, it's likely this appearance is more for show, and he may not spend much time on the ice.

Drafted eighth overall by the Montreal Canadiens in 1995, Ryan played eight NHL games, gaining a reputation for his physical style with 36 penalty minutes. After various league stints, he briefly stepped away from the game (20032007) before returning to play in leagues like Chinook HL, WCSHL, NLSHL, ECSHL, NSHL-Sr., and AESHL.
