History

2009-10: Ryan Hartman skated for the Chicago Mission U16 team in Illinois. In 38 games he scored 25 goals with 19 assists and had 64 penalty minutes. He committed to playing college hockey at Miami University in 2013-14 and was drafted by Plymouth in the fifth round (95th overall) of the 2010 OHL Priority Draft.

2010-11: Hartman was selected for the USA National Team Development program in Ann Arbor and played four games with the NDTP’s U18 team while spending most of the year with the U17 squad. He had 1 assist and 4 penalty minutes in four games with the U18 team. Hartman was the U17 team’s leading scorer in regular season play – scoring 22 goals with 12 assists – and had 88 penalty minutes in 52 games. In international play he scored 2 goals with 2 assists in the 2010 Four Nations Cup and had 4 goals and 2 assists in six games as the USA finished second in the 2011 U17 World Hockey Challenge. Hartman scored 3 goals in 3 games as the USA U17 team captured the 2011 U18 Vlad Dzurilla Tournament in Slovakia.

2011-12: Hartman returned to Ann Arbor for a second season, finishing as the U18 team’s second-leading scorer, and won a gold medal with Team USA at the 2012 U18 World Junior Championship. He scored 16 goals with 25 assists and had a team-high 136 penalty minutes in 59 games. In six games at the U18 WJC he scored 2 goals with 4 assists and was plus-nine with 22 penalty minutes. Hartman de-committed to playing college hockey at Miami and in May signed to play with the OHL’s Plymouth Whalers in 2012-13.

2012-13: Hartman was the third-leading scorer for Plymouth despite missing 12 games and was part of the USA team that won a gold medal at the 2013 U20 World Junior Championship. He scored 23 goals with 37 assists and was plus-29 while leading the Whalers with 120 penalty minutes. Plymouth reached the second round in the playoffs before falling to London. Hartman scored 4 goals with 2 assists and was plus-four with 16 penalty minutes in nine playoff games. In seven games at the WJC he scored 2 goals with 1 assist and was plus-four with 16 penalty minutes. Hartman was ranked 16th amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings and was selected by Chicago in the first round (30th overall) in the 2013 NHL Draft.

2013-14: Hartman made his pro hockey debut at the end of March — skating in nine games with Chicago AHL affiliate Rockford following his second season with the Plymouth Whalers — and skated for the USA U20 team in the 2014 World Juniors. He scored 3 goals with 4 assists and was minus-1 with 8 penalty minutes for the IceHogs, who missed the AHL playoffs. Hartman was the second-leading scorer for Plymouth behind overage center Zach Lorentz. He scored 25 goals with 28 assists despite missing 16 games and was minus-14 with 91 penalty minutes. Plymouth finished fourth in the West Division and lost to eventual OHL champion Guelph in a first round playoff series. Hartman had 4 assists and was minus-6 with 8 penalty minutes in five playoff games. In five games at the WJC he scored 2 goals with 2 assists and was plus-2 with 4 penalty minutes. The USA finished fifth after a 5-3 loss to Russia in the quarterfinals. Hartman signed a three-year entry-level contract with Chicago in November 2013.

 

Talent Analysis

At 5’11, 190 pounds, Hartman’s size is not exactly eye-popping, but his ability to excel at all facets of the game most certainly does. Hartman is a tough 5’11 and is willing to throw his body around. He finds his way into the gritty areas of the ice and has solid enough hands to convert a few opportunities. He’s also played both center and the wing, making him a versatile player with an all-around game.

 

Future

Hartman is skating for Chicago AHL affiliate Rockford as a 20-year-old in his first pro season. While he will be challenged to consistently put up the type of offensive numbers he put up in junior hockey at the pro level, his combativeness should allow him to be an effective two-way forward.

It’s not a deep pool, but when it comes to NHL-drafted goaltenders in the OHL, quantity takes a back seat to quality.

The OHL is graced by two elite netminders atop the rankings, another one knocking on that lofty door, one middling prospect, and a potentially quality prospect who, unfortunately, has to take an incomplete grade due to an injury. Read more»
