Mitch Ryan is trying to return to D-1 hockey.
Ryan played half a season with Minnesota-Duluth, before leaving the team at the semester break.
He is now trying out with St. Cloud, where there's no guarantee he will make the team, but he could fill in the spot vacated by A.J. Gale, who left earlier this year, or John Swanson, who moved back to defense.
St. Cloud has a history of taking transfers from Minnesota-Duluth including forward Dan Kronick, who graduated from St. Cloud last year, and goalie Adam Coole.
