“We are really excited to have Ryan on board with the Rush for three more years,” said Rush Head Coach Jeff McComb in a statement.

“Ryan is an integral part of our offence as his versatility makes all his teammates around him better players. Ryan has been able to add new elements to his game every year since he came into the league, and we look forward to watching his game continue to grow with him wearing a Rush uniform.”
