Manchester Storm are excited to announce the signing of forward Ryan Barrow, most recently of University of Denver (NCAA).
The 25-year-old Alberta native first made an impact on the world of hockey with Langley Rivermen (BCHL) producing 88 points (34G 54A) in 102 appearances. This consistent play would secure a college commitment from the prestigious University of Denver.
Barrow would spend five-years donning the crimson and gold of the NCAA outfit – in the process rubbing shoulders with several current NHLers, most notably: Troy Terry, Dylan Gambrell, Will Butcher and Trevor Moore. In his final year, Barrow would form a key part of the NCAA Championship winning roster in 2021-22.
The forward joins the Storm with 168 NCAA appearances 26 goals and 39 assists – including two years serving as alternate captain (2020-22).
Head Coach, Matt Ginn, commented on his latest addition:
“Ryan is a large winger who has excellent hockey IQ. He is consistently able to find the open-ice in order to get the best shot away and he will pose a real threat within our line-up.
He is joining us from a winning program at the University of Denver and will be able to play anywhere on a game night. He has chosen to sign with Manchester and turned down contracts within the league to play a bigger role for the Storm. He wants to be the difference maker and I am really excited to see what he can do when given the opportunity.”
