Also, he chose not to redshirt last season which leads me to believe that he isn't planing on using all of his college eligability anyway.
As a diehard Gopher fan, that's totally news to me, there has been absolutely no indication that he is even thinking of not returning next year. He chose not to redshirt more because he wanted to play with his brother than anything else. The thinking around here is that if Ryan does leave college early to go pro (which is a distinct possibility), it'll most likely be before his senior year (next year), not this year. He already is an integral part of the Gophers' lineup, and with a full year of college hockey under his belt and the talent the Gophers are bringing in next year, he has a good chance to put up some really good numbers this year, IMHO.
