Michael Van Ryn (born May 14, 1979 in London, Ontario) is a professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for the Toronto Maple Leafs of the NHL.

Playing career

Van Ryn developed his hockey skills in the Byron Minor Hockey Association. He also has a collegiate hockey experience with the University of Michigan of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association, before joining the Sarnia Sting of the Ontario Hockey League in 1999.

Van Ryn was drafted in the 1st round, 26th overall by the New Jersey Devils in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. In June 2000, Van Ryn signed as a free agent with the St. Louis Blues.

In March 2003, Van Ryn was traded to the Florida Panthers for Valeri Bure and a conditional draft selection in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

Van Ryn was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs on September 2, 2008. This trade involved defenceman Bryan McCabe going to the Florida Panthers, as well as a fourth round draft pick in 2010.

On October 14, 2009, Van Ryn announced he will undergo a season ending and possibly career ending surgery, known as an osteotomy on his left knee on October 22, 2009. His surgery will be similar to the operation that Steve Yzerman underwent to prolong his career.
