The Ryerson Rams men’s hockey program announced via Twitter (@RyersonRamsMHKY) on Thursday that Windsor Spitfires forward Chris Playfair has committed for the 2021-22 season.
A 20-year-old centre from Waterloo, Ont., Playfair put together an 11-point (3-8–11) season with the Spits in 2019-20 and has compiled 48 points (18-30–48) over his four-year run in Windsor. The former fourth round (75th overall) pick of the Spitfires in the 2016 OHL Priority Selection is a graduate of the Waterloo Wolves U16 program.
While in Windsor, Playfair hoisted the Memorial Cup as a rookie in 2017 and was awarded the Peter Thomson of Sunlife Academic Achievement Award.
Playfair, who will study Business Management at Ryerson’s Ted Rogers School of Management, will join fellow recent Ryerson commits Jackson Doherty and Adrien Beraldo in the Rams lineup next fall. Ryerson skated to a 20-8 record in 2019-20, finishing second in the OUA West Division.
