David “Dave” Gardner

Hockey, Switzerland

During the 2015-16 season, Ryan played his 1000th game in the top division of professional Swiss hockey. This award is a highlight of Ryan’s career and he comments:

“I am very proud that I was able to play over 1000 games in the top division in Switzerland. Being the 7th player to achieve this great accomplishment. Staying healthy throughout all those years and being able to play at a high level is something that took a lot of work but is very satisfying in the end. The cherry on top is that during my actual 1000th game I scored the game winner!”
