|At Dartmouth: Chaytors -- along with Curtis Wilgosh -- was named an assistant captain for 1998-99. Chaytors is again expected to carry a heavy offensive load, especially with the losses the team suffered due to graduation. He finished sixth on the team in scoring with 17 points (7g, 10a), 12 of which came against ECAC opponents. He scored points in back-to-back games five times during the season, including a three-game goal scoring streak that began in a 3-3 tie against Merrimack (12/20). Chaytors then scored a goal in consecutive games against Bowling Green and Providence (12/27- 12/28) and was named to the all-tournament team at the Sheraton/USAirways Classic at Vermont. In the Big Green's 8-1 victory against Union, he notched a game-high two assists. As a sophomore, Chaytors exploded with 28 points (16g, 12a) -- placing him third on the scoring list -- after collecting just five points as a freshman. He recorded his first collegiate hat trick against St. Lawrence (1/18), after scoring two goals and three assists in a weekend series at Colgate and Cornell (11/15-11/16). Chaytors also had a four-game scoring streak (11/29-12/30) when he netted six goals and added two assists. He was named to the all-tournament team at the Auld Lang Syne held at Dartmouth, scoring two goals, and was awarded the team's John Manser Award as the most improved player. Chaytors' freshman season was shortened due to a broken hand suffered during practice. He showed great promise, notching his first collegiate goal in a loss to defending national champion Boston University (12/12).
High School/Juniors: Chaytors played two seasons of junior hockey with the Calgary Canucks of the Alberta Jr. A League before enrolling at Dartmouth. In both seasons he was named to the AJHL All-Star team, and in 1994-95, he captained the Canucks to the Centennial Cup Championship. Chaytors attended Father Lacombe High School.
Personal: Ryan started playing hockey at three years old and lists the Detroit Red Wings' Steve Yzerman as his favorite player because of their similiar size and his leadership qualities. Ryan thinks that Vermont's Gutterson Arena is the toughest rink to play in the ECAC because of the great rivalry and fans. Ryan lists Slapshot as his favorite movie and Tragically Hip as his favorite music group. He enjoys playing golf and lacrosse off the ice and cheers for the hometown Calgary Flames of the NHL.
