Ryan Callahan was born March 21, 1985 in Rochester, New York. Selected in the fourth round, 127th overall by the New York Rangers in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Callahan is a graduate of the OHL's Guelph Storm

Callahan appeared in 249 career regular season games with the Guelph Storm of the OHL, registering 130 goals and 107 assists for 237 points. Having tallied 130 goals with Guelph, Callahan became the highest career regular season goal scorer in club history. Upon completion of his career in Guelph, Callahan made his professional debut with the New York Rangers' AHL affiliate, the Hartford Wolfpack. In his first pro season in the AHL Callahan would tally 35 goals and 20 assists for 55 points and was named to the 2006-07 AHL All-Rookie Team. During that year, Callahan was called up by the Rangers and made 14 appearances with the club including his NHL debut on December 1, 2006.

Callahan's strong two-way play and ability to put the puck in the net made him a mainstay on Broadway and a popular teammate. Prior to the 2009-10 season he was named alternate captain of the Rangers.

In February of 2010, Callahan was part of the US Olympic team that brought home the silver medal in a thrilling overtime final at the Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.

Prior to the 2011-12 season, Callahan was named the 26th captain in New York Rangers history.

When the Rangers and Callahan could not come to a contract extension agreement, he was traded, along with two first round picks and a seventh round pick, to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Martin St. Louis and a second round pick.

In 2014, Callahan represented the United States once again at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The United States finished in fourth place.
