Ryno had a very good season in Division-1 in 2004-05 and was among the leaders on his team in scoring. He more than doubled his goals and points from last season.

2006-07: Ryno, who was pegged to be a breakout player in Sweden last season, had problems with injuries and never really settled in with the Elitserien game. He was bounced around between several clubs before finally getting some solid ice time with Timrå at the end of the season. His play late in the season shows just how much of potential this big winger has.
2007-08: This season was Ryno’s first in the AHL. He appeared in 12 games for the Grand Rapids Griffins, scoring three goals and another four helped, but decided he wasn’t happy with their style of play and decided to return home. In 30 games with Djurgardens IF (SWE), Ryno netted two goals and seven assists.

Talent Analysis
Ryno has tremendous size for a winger and is a solid skater. He does also have respectable, but not spectacular puck skills. He has good attitude and is a hard worker. Ryno isn´t afriad of using his size to his advantage. He has good scoring touch and is dangerous around the net. He possesses above average hockey sense and uses his linemates well.

Still, you’ll find many who’ll say there’s no better level of hockey combining pure, proven international competitiveness and the ability to integrate and foster young, excellent talent than in Sweden’s SHL.
