Ryan Hamilton played four seasons in the Ontario Hockey League from 2002-03 to 2005-06, all with the Barrie Colts. 2002-03 was an adventure for Hamilton and proof of this man’s determination to be a hockey player.
As a seventeen year old, the Oshawa native began his season with Peterborough of the OPJHL where he played 27 games. He moved to Trenton in the same league and played 17 more games. From Trenton, he went northwest to Orillia and played 11 games with the Couchiching Terriers. He left for the WHL and the promise of a higher level of hockey. His stint with the Moose Jaw Warriors, a team that he’d play ten games for the season before, lasted five games before he was back in Ontario, playing for the Colts.
In his overage season in the Ontario Hockey League, 2005-06, Ryan scored 46 goals which was good for tops on a Colts team that was lead by Bryan Little and Hunter Tremblay in points. The team had a great regular season but lost out to the Peterborough Petes in the Eastern Conference finals.
Hamilton was never drafted and after his Ontario Hockey League days were done, he moved on to the American Hockey League where he has been ever since. Ryan began his AHL career with the Houston Aeros and was moved to the Toronto Marlies midway through the 2008-09 season.
Ryan begins the 2010-11 season with the Marlies, with hopes of a call up from the National Hockey League’s Toronto Maple Leafs.
