Left-winger Ryan Huska played one game for the Chicago Black Hawks in 1997-98. He was a rugged competitor who could produce his share of points in junior and the minors.
Born in Cranbrook, BC, Huska spent four years with the WHL's Kamloops Blazers and was a member of Memorial Cup championships in 1992, 1994 and 1995. He was taken 76th overall by Chicago in 1993 and made his pro debut with the Indianapolis Ice of the IHL in 1995-96.
Huska provided grit and goal scoring in Indy for three years and played one game with the Hawks in 1997-98. In the end, he was unable to make a sufficient impression on the Chicago brass to warrant another chance at big league employment. He returned to the AHL where he was a useful two way worker for the Lowel Lock Monsters and the Springfield Falcons.
