Ryan Finalist for Calder Trophy

The National Hockey League (NHL) club announced today that Ducks right wing Bobby Ryan has been named a finalist for the 2009 Calder Memorial Trophy, which will be awarded to the League’s best rookie at The 2009 NHL Awards in Las Vegas on June 18. Ryan joins Columbus goaltender Steve Mason and Chicago left wing Kris Versteeg as the top three contenders for the Calder Trophy this year.

Ryan is the second Ducks player in franchise history to be named a Calder Trophy finalist, the other being Paul Kariya in 1994-95 (finished third in the voting). He’s the first U.S.-born player to be nominated since Scott Gomez (NJ, won the award) and Mike York (NYR) in 1999-00.  

“Bobby has had a terrific season and is well-deserving of this honor,” said Anaheim Ducks Executive Vice President/ General Manager Bob Murray.

Ryan, 22 (3/17/87), scored 31-26=57 points with a +13 rating and 33 penalty minutes (PIM) in 64 regular season games for the Ducks in 2008-09. In three playoff games vs. San Jose, Ryan has added two goals (2-0=2) in the Ducks-Sharks Western Conference Quarterfinal series. Ryan completed the regular season leading all NHL rookies in scoring, goals, points-per-game (.89), power play goals (12), power play points (23) and shooting percentage (17.8%). He also ranked tied for fourth among rookies in assists and tied for third in power play assists (11). Named the NHL Rookie of the Month for January, Ryan collected 13 more points and 10 more goals than any other league freshman following his Nov. 15 recall from the Iowa Chops, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). He was the first West-Coast rookie to lead the league in points since Los Angeles’ Luc Robitaille in 1986-87 (45-39=87) and in goals since Anaheim’s Paul Kariya in the lockout-shortened 1994-95 season (18 goals).

Bobby Ryan Highlights

Selected by Anaheim in the first round (second overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, Ryan established franchise rookie records in goals and points, and matched the Ducks’ rookie record in assists in 2008-09. He became the first rookie in club history (and the first in the NHL in 2008-09) to record a 20-goal/20-assist season, eventually reaching the 30/20 plateau. Among team leaders, Ryan finished the regular season ranked first in plus/minus, second in goals and power play goals, third in game-winning goals, and fourth in points.

The 2009 NHL Awards will be broadcast live from the Pearl Concert Theater inside the Palms Hotel Las Vegas on June 18 (VERSUS in the United States and CBC in Canada). The event will bring together the League's best players, celebrities and other NHL VIPs in celebration of the season's brightest stars.
