St. George's defenseman Ryan Buckley isn’t the most outspoken individual off the ice. He isn’t the flashiest player on it either.
Instead, a steady, reliable demeanor is what makes the Warwick, R.I., native stand out.
“Ryan is a quiet kid by nature in the best of ways,” St. George's head coach Jeff Dwyer said. “He’s one of those guys, when he has something to say, guys listen because he's not a rah-rah guy that's constantly talking. He's very thoughtful."
On the ice, it's much of the same for the rising senior, who relies on a defense-first approach to be effective in all areas of play.
