I first met Ryo when he was 11 years old in New York when I met up with him and a Japanese travel team called "The Japan Samurai." He was noticeably skilled then, but in the past year he has been putting in some incredibly focused practice. His ability to handle the puck has gotten so much better, and he always wants to be on the ice. Doing what he loves - becoming masterful at his craft day by day.
Ryo is a 12 year old kid from Toronto, Ontario. He plays for the Mississauga North Stars, as well as Pro Hockey, Regional Express and Carnavale Hockey Group.
It was an absolute pleasure getting on the ice with him and running him through some drills. There was nothing I could throw at him that he didn't want to try. That's what it always boils down to - facing challenges, and doing your absolute best. Finding your potential, and redefining what you are capable of one day at a time as you're level of skill increased.
