Ryan Leonard is a bonafide sniper who is ready to light up the scoreboard at the next level. He is one of the top scorers in his age group and has been a dominant force in the American high school circuits. Ryan will likely follow in his brothers footsteps by going down the collegiate path to play in the NCAA. To date, Ryan has been going down a similar path to his brother John, who is currently playing in the San Jose Sharks organization. The youngest Leonard brother has arguably had an even high school career to date then the Sharks forward had at his age. 

 

Ryan Leonard possesses a deadly shot that is already far above the level of his peers. His shot boosts deadly accuracy and speed. Goaltenders don’t stand a chance when Leonard gets the shot he wants off of his stick. His lethal wrister possesses pinpoint accuracy but what is even more noticeable is his release. No matter where he is shooting the puck from, it's hard to follow when he shoots it due to its speed. There is seemingly no area on the ice where Leonard cannot score from. Leonard can also battle hard in front of the net and is quick to find and capitalize on loose pucks to get his team on the board.
