Hey, I'm sure all of you know Red Wings prospect Johan Ryno. He's a hulking (6-5) right winger with some sweet stickhandling.

After the 2005/2006 season, Ryno signed a two-year deal with Swedish top team Frölunda, a team famous for making young players succeed.

According to Frölunda's coaching staff, Ryno will play with feisty veteran (and team clown, just look here) Jonas Esbjörs and very experienced centerman and team captain Jonas Johnson. Ever since Finnish sniper Tomi Kallio arrived from North America in January, 2003, Johnson played with him and former minor-leaguer and team MVP Niklas Andersson on a feared top-unit. It'll be interesting to see what influence the captain will have on Ryno.

Now to my intent with this thread. I was thinking I could be using it to report on Ryno during the season. Since he plays for my SEL team, I obviously will see a lot of him.

A few pix of Ryno making his first on-ice practice:

It'll be interesting to see how this year goes for him with his team and linemates.

He's supposed to earn a spot on any of the top 3 lines. Nice that he'll be playing on the same team as fellow Wings prospect, Anton Axelsson. From what I read from a Frolunda fan on another site, Ryno has terrific offensive tools and is good in his own end as well. He is willing to pay the price to score a goal but doesn't dish out hits himself. He's still filling into his frame so once that happens, he could develop his game into a more charge-the-net type and turn into a power forward. Right now he has all the tools to be a solid two-way player.

Thanks for keeping us posted, Systemfel.

I really really doubt it. Kid is definetly still a kid. In 2 years probably, but unless hes completly outstanding in 2006 don't expect him over here till 08 or 09.

Whether they bring him over or not they still have to sign him next summer or he re-enters the draft.

Well... Frölunda has now played two games of the Nordic Trophy pre-season tournament. In the opening game Ryno couldn't help seeing his team collapse against Kärpät in Oulu, Finland. Frölunda took an enormous beating and lost 9-0.

Today Ryno played on a line with '82 born Karl Fabricius (who almost signed with Philly in June) and '84 born Edmonton center prospect Fredrik Johansson. Don't know how well Johan played in that game, but he went pointless as his team lost 5-4. Too bad the coaching staff (including former NHLer Calle Johansson) didn't stick him with speedy 5-foot-5 Steve Kariya who he seemingly found some chemistry with during the first game... Those two looked hilarious skating together because of the size differnce. cool.gif

Frölunda played their fourth game of the pre-season today, losing to Swedish champions Färjestad. Playing with vet Jonas Esbjörs and 16-year-old Dane Mikkel Bödker on the Red Unit, Ryno scored Frölunda's second goal in the game. That goal put Frölunda a goal behind heading into the third, but Färjestad scored TWO shorthanded goals and went on to win 5-3.

Also, a note: Ryno's playing with #61 on his back, since his favorite number (19) is retired by Frölunda. cool.gif

Ohhh upside down. Tricky and it'll work once he hits the Wings too. Thanks for the updates!

Last night Frölunda beat Finish HIFK at home, 5-2 was the final score. On former Tampa center Martin Cibák's 1-0 goal, Ryno got an assist along with Jonas Esbjörs. This was a power-play goal. Ryno was at the halfboards, then passed it to Esbjörs in the corner. Esbjörs skated forward a bit and set up Cibák with a beautiful feed.

Ryno also got a game misconduct. This was during a Frölunda PP too. Ryno crashed the net after a point shot from Dallas prospect Jonas Fransson, and just barely touched HIFK goalie Janne Lundell. Then some idiot on HIFK just jumped Ryno from behind and cross-checked him in the neck. A brawl (with gloves on) started. The idiot who cross-checked Ryno got ejected for cross-checking. That was perfectly fine. But then, Ryno was thrown out of the game as well. For CHARGING. How can a player get ejected for just touching the opposing goalie? Stupid, gutless, Swedish refs...

Eerr, weird about Ryno being tossed out.

Thanks for the updates systemfel!

Frölunda faced Finnish team Tappara on Friday night. Steve Kariya scored the 2-1 GW for Frölunda after 16 secs of OT. Ryno had another strong showing with four shots on goal. He was held off the scoresheet, though...

OK, so speaking of Ryno, just how do you pronounce his name? RAI-noh? REE-no? I've wondered this for a while.

It may also be something closer to say Roo-noh. The Y can have a touch of 'u' in it over there. Like Lydman (Lidman) turned into Lewdman when he went to Buffalo. Though he is Finnish, but sometimes the names get crossed over like the Salo's.

In English people probably should pronounce it "REE-noo". The Swedish Y sound is pretty hard for Enligsh spoken to say, I think. smile.gif

That's how the TSN play-by-play guys were pronouncing his name back in the World Juniors.

Well this is what I got as an answer over at HFBoards.

QUOTE
Well, here's my attempt at a transcription:

YOH-hun REW-noh

Notes:
* A Swedish j is always pronounced as the y in "yes".
* The first o should be long.
* The a should be short, like the u in "stun.
* The r should be rolling (with the exception of certain dialects).
* As Krm500 pointed out, the y is close to the German ü (or the French ue sound).
I transcribed it ew as in "few", but it's really the middle of that diphtong I'm getting at.
Try saing ee and as you say it, slowly form your mouth to say oo.
If you stop halfway you should find the Swedish y, or at least be very close to it.
If it doesn't work, I suggest you go with the ee sound and say "Reeno".
* I'm not entirely sure how the last o should be pronounced ("Ryno" isn't a exactly a common name), but when I say it, it sounds kind of like the o in a British "not".
Could be I prounounce it wrong and it should be more like the oo in "good".

That's pretty much exactly the directions I got from my French teacher in high school. Boy do you sound Frenchy when you start doing that. Monsieur Granger was always trying to have us get rid of our American accents when speaking French and that is a great way to start sounding European.
