SCOUTING REPORT - from Windsor Spitfires Website

Ryan is the type of player that you love to have on your team and you hate to play against. He has great speed and intimidates his opponents with his speed. He uses his speed to create offense by forechecking, challenging defenders wide and creating space. Ryan has a very good skill set and can change the momentum of a game with a single shift. He plays on the edge and when he plays under control he is a dominant with skill, speed and competitiveness. Ryan has a good sense for the net and he is definitely not afraid to go to the dirty areas to score goals.

Comments taken from Sarnia Sting website:

Hes a grinder, says Coach Beaulieu. He plays the game the right way and deserved to be drafted where he did. Down the road hes going to be a role player on our team. 
Matteo is the son of Sting co-owner Larry Ciccarelli.
